Rebecca Ennis' 6-year-old daughter Olivia was diagnosed with Leukemia the last week of March, according to a GoFundMe campaign organized by Rebecca's sister Jennifer Troester. 

The Westford mom will now be out of a job as Ennis travels to and from Boston while Olivia gets treatment, Troester said. She hopes the GoFundMe will help ease the family's financial burden. 

"No parent should have to face this, and no parent should have to worry financially if they do," Troester wrote on the campaign page. "We all LOVE Becky and her family SO much, and this is a small way we can support them during this nightmare of a time. Thank you all so much!" 

The GoFundMe is looking to raise $100,000. People interested in donating can do so here.
