FaZe Clan member Ricky Banks has called upon the internet for help after his god brother, and best friend’s, daughter was recently diagnosed with a form of Leukemia.
On February 4, Banks shared the heartbreaking news on Twitter with his fans, asking for help: “My best friend & god brother received life-shattering news last week. His 3-year-old daughter, Isabella has been diagnosed w/ Leukemia. So unfair. They’re prepared to fight for as long as they have to. He started a gofundme, here’s the link. Anything helps.”
The GoFundMe is looking to help Banks’ best friend’s daughter - Isabella - who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L) a few days prior to his tweet.
The original post on the donation link tells the story of how the three-year-old started to feel ill, needing to stay home from school before having to go to see a pediatrician for some blood work. After undergoing tests, it was revealed to the family that they would need to take their daughter to a hospital for further evaluation. There, it was revealed to them that Isabella had A.L.L.
The GoFundMe, set up by a Carey Hamilton, has already reached over $13,500 - with over 200 people donating in the first two days, including a $1,000 donation from Banks himself. However, it is still less than halfway to the $30,000 goal - a goal that would help the family's costs as Isabella will have to begin 25 months of chemotherapy treatment.
