(Last year in July, happy and healthy with her son Ediz)
My dear Auntie (Yenge), Tulay is 41 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer on July 2020 . For those of you who know her, you know that she is an extraordinary human being. She is cheerful, loving, unbelievably strong and always puts her friends and family before herself.
She underwent surgery at the end of September to remove the cancer, which was successful. But, with further testing cancerous cells were detected in her lymph nodes. As a result, she had to undergo 4 months of chemotherapy as you can see below.
(3 months into her chemotherapy)
Because of this, she has been unable to work and will likely not be able to return until in the future. Since shes been diagnosed, she now suffers financially as she has no income to support herself and her young son Ediz. With the everyday necessities of life, money is getting tighter and tighter. At the moment, she is relying on hand outs from supportive family members and friends.
Tulay is one of the strongest, most selfless people I have ever known and is always there to give her love and support. She is such a proud women, that she'd refuse the thought of any form of financial/charity support! but in reality, she needs the support considering her circumstances during these desperate times they both face.
Now, it's time that we send back some of that love and support to Tulay and her son Ediz. Anything you can donate will be truly appreciated. Everything we can do to help and surround her with love is what is most important so she can focus on beating this thing. Please spread the word. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Love from Dervish and family.
