Desperate father asks his colleagues for donations so that he can spend time with his baby with cancer

A DAD asks his colleagues for donations so that he can spend more time with his little daughter, who was diagnosed with cancer.

David Green and his wife Megan from Alabama in the US knew something was wrong with eleven-month-old Kinsley when they realized that her "happy, smiley, ticklish little girl was getting sick".

The affected couple initially thought that the little girl was suffering from a blood infection, but the worst fears were confirmed when they discovered she had leukemia.

They were told that Kinsley, now 16 months old, had acute lymphoblastic B-cell leukemia and would need to start chemotherapy.

Megan retired from her job to be with Kinsley during her treatment, while David continued to work as a football coach at the local high school to pay his little girl's medical bills.

When Megan saw how hurt he was, she asked his colleagues on Facebook to opt for free time.

She wrote: "David officially has no sick days at work.

"We want him to be able to stay in the hospital with us while Kinsley is receiving chemotherapy, so if you are a teacher in Alabama state and able to give a sick day, we would be very happy!

"Kinsley is the girl of the biggest father and needs him as often as he can, so she would be so grateful for every donated day that she can spend time with her daddy.

"Kinsley will be treated for leukemia towards the end of the summer and maybe even until the school year next year.

"So we have a long way to go, any help would be so grateful."

The post was shared more than 1,000 times as the teachers rallied around David.

Now, a GoFundMe site has been set up to increase the cost of Kinsley treatment.

The site says, "David (Dad) drives from Birmingham to Huntsville (2 hours), where he is a football coach at Jemison High School to look after cute Kinsley while caring for her family. You have medical expenses, gas costs, and living expenses ,

"It was all very sudden and unplanned and everything you can give will help."

One drug alone will save the family £ 8,034 ($ 15,000) as it is not covered by their insurance.

Speaking to, David said, "Kinsley gets a lot of the chemo that adults get, because unfortunately there are not many chemo-therapeutics specifically for children, much fewer infants and toddlers.

"That's why she had some complications and it's important for me to be there for my family."

The family remains optimistic and shares Kinsley's journey on social media.

When she started her chemotherapy, David twittered: "It starts today and my little girl is fine.

"We take it day after day and fight for every inch, we'll beat that!

The Greens have also set up an Amazon wish list for anyone who wants to help.

A mother of five strikes trolls who call her belly "wrinkled and disgusting."

And this childminder offers busy mothers an hour of free childcare so they can do their smear tests.

Although smear tests are crucial for women, one in three Britons is overdue.
