Lil Memo Battles Childhood Cancer
This is where all of us come in to the picture!
We have set a goal of $ 50,000.00 to assist in medical bills and expenses. We are hoping to start receiving donations quickly.
Kristen has an amazing support group that consists of her immediate family ( Mom, Dad and sister ) , in laws, aunts, uncles..etc. Many and many coworkers and friends throughout Arizona and the entire country, her two other boys - Marcus and Antonio along with the boys father - Rey Vasquez. I have asked many people in our circle to start sending prayers. THANK YOU for them! Please keep sending prayers and please consider making some type of contribution. Your generosity will help ease an aspect for them during the difficult time ahead.
I have never thought of compiling something like this. Nor organizing a fundraiser. As emotional as it is for me to put this in writing, it can't compare to what they are feeling. Emilio is a sweet, sweet boy! Loves to play with his older brothers, is handsome, fun, smart and just wants to "kick this cancer's butt" and be a little boy again. We know that he/ they will persevere!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your donation. God Bless you.
This past Friday was a rough day. Emilio had his port and feeding tube surgically placed. As you can imagine, he was in pain - restlessness was had by all. This coming Wednesday, the Bone Marrow Aspiration will happen. This procedure happens so they are certain the cancer is not in his bones. More prayers need to be sent for this please!
Good news was received. The second set of CT scans on his lungs came back clear! That brought some relief to this unbelievable situation.
I failed to mention in my original campaign description that Emilio is to go through 43 weeks of Chemo and Radiation. The first treatment is Friday June 17th. It is hard to fathom this, so PLEASE keep sending prayers and well wishes to Kristen and her family's way. PLEASE share this on social media...e-mails...however you can. There have been some great ideas of doing other types of fundraisers throughout Tucson and other places..so please stay tuned for those and your participation will be appreciated immensely. Last but not least, if you can find it in your heart to donate - please do so. Every penny ( and prayer ) counts. Thank you for everything!
Team Memo is overwhelmed by the support and donations already received. I'm speechless and eternally grateful! Thank you to all that have donated and shared Emilio's fundraiser. Please help keep it going!! Thank you Scott Kuzma for heading this "kick cancers butt" / Lil Memo campaign. This campaign has brought comfort to the overwhelming financial aspect. Your prayers have been equally helpful!! Please continue to spreed the love ❤️ and positive mojo. Beyond greatful- Kris10
