Roslyn Family In Need of Our Help

$34,095 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 476 people in 17 months
When you're a mom and you're sick, what's the first thing you worry about? Who is going to take care of my kids?! Now imagine having to worry about that every single day since the day your child was born...

I'm writing this on behalf of a very special mom and a very special family. Tiffany is a wonderful mom, an incredible friend and a devoted daughter. She lives in Roslyn with her mom Denise and her son, who is a student at the Heights school. Tiffany has been on an uphill battle with cancer for many years and unfortunately it just keeps getting harder as she is currently receiving palliative care at the North Shore Hospital, and hopes to return home soon with hospice care. Tiffany NEEDS OUR HELP. She lives with her amazing mom Denise, who not only works full time to care for Tiffany and her son, she also takes on most of the parenting duties as Tiffany is no longer strong enough to do it herself. Right now, their primary concern is after school childcare. The Roslyn after school program (RAP) is ideal because it's very close to their home and their son is a student at Heights. Unfortunately, it costs $145 a week and because it's privately run, they don't offer scholarships. We would love to be able to collect enough money to secure her son a spot in RAP for the school year. If, God willing, we collect more than they need for RAP, I can assure you all additional monies will be used to enrich Tiffany's life, to make her more comfortable and to help provide for her son in the future. Any donations will be so appreciated and will give Tiffany and Denise the peace of mind, we all would want, knowing her son is taken care of.

This family is going through the unimaginable. Let's do something as a community to lighten the worries of what WILL BE so these women can focus on giving this little boy all the love possible RIGHT NOW. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. 

XO

I'm heartbroken to inform you all that Tiffany Lindo passed away yesterday, at 520 pm, with her mother and father by her side. Tiffany was a strong, generous, loving and kind woman. She was a mother, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a niece, and a friend. She was a warrior mommy. She fought a very long and difficult battle, and she did it with such grace. She was so appreciative and touched by the outpouring of love and support during her final weeks with us. While I will always wish there was more we could do while Tiffany was with us, I hope she left this world knowing how loved she is and that Trystin will be loved and supported by her incredible family and our amazing community. Thank you all for your overwhelming generosity, kindness, love and humanity. There are no words, just deep sadness. Rest In Peace, sweet Tiffany. You will be missed but will never be forgotten.
All my love

To the Go Fund Me Trolls (Cindy Ann) -
It saddens me terribly that I even need to write this. I've been accused of being dishonest and a lot of terrible inaccurate things have been written with absolutely no validity to them at all. I'm going to clarify a couple of things but in no way will I address all of Cindy's stupidity out of respect for the Lindo family. We began this go fund me to raise money for RAP, and never in our wildest dreams did we think our community and friends would rally behind this family the way they have. Times are very tough for the Lindo family and once we were able to meet our first goal, we were inundated with people who still wanted to donate and help this family. So we raised the goal. And kept raising as people kept calling wanting to help. The money you have all donated WILL help this family pay for RAP and well beyond. You are securing a future for Trystin - whether it pays for after school, babysitting, meals, clothing, a college fund - Denise has nothing but Trystin's best interest in heart and will use this money to give him the life she was able to give her 35 year old daughter, who is terminally ill. I cannot be bothered to address some of these disgusting accusations publicly - this family is going through the unimaginable right now and it pains me that they even have to see this. But to you trolls out there, you know what they say about karma. It works both ways. Tiffany is an incredible person and karma has come around to help her in her time of need. Cindy Ann, we'll see what karma does with you.
All of my best to you beautiful people out there who are supporting the Lindo family.

On behalf of Tiffany and her entire family, I just want to thank you all again for your continued support and love for #teamTiffany. Our Tiffany is such a warrior- she continues to fight every day to be here for her family and for her son. She is aware and is beyond grateful that you are all praying for her and helping to secure a wonderful future for her son. Your calls, messages, visits, gifts and donations continue to inspire her to continue fighting. Trystin is going to need our support not only now, but as he continues to grow into the man his mom is raising him to be. I have no doubt after what I've witnessed this past week, that we are going to continue to rally behind Trystin as a community and support him. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Seeing the support given by complete strangers restored my faith in humanity. However, I am very disturbed & saddened to see what I can only assume was Cindy Ann making accusations that this story is a scam. I pray that you never fall upon such difficult times that u need to use GoFundMe for yourself. My prayers r with Tiffany & the rest of her family during this most difficult time. Sending prayers, love & positive vibes. Love & peace!
