Poeta Family Fund
This will be a very hard fight and so many people have asked how they can help! We are organizing this site with hopes of helping raise money for the Poeta family during this extremely difficult time. They will be looking at time away from work, medical bills and challenges still unknown. Thank you for your prayers, support and most of all love during this battle.
Dorie, John, Cara and, of course, precious Nina, will need as many thoughts, prayers and support as possible. We will fight hard, we will offer support, and we will be there to help Nina win this fight!
Please find it in your heart to donate and spread the word to as many people as possible (email this out please!!). Cancer has affected all of us in one way or another and we need to pull together and support this special family and their beautiful 16 year old daughter on her road to recovery. I appreciate that you have taken the time to read their story and even if a monetary donation is not possible please say a prayer for Nina and the Poeta family.
Right now they need us to offer our love and prayers.
They also need our financial help. The expenses of the past year are great. We can ease this burden somewhat. Benefits are being held to offer assistance over the next few months. Please attend as many as you can. These are opportunities to join together and celebrate Nina's life and this wonderful family, while removing some of the added stress of these large expenses.
Next Friday, the 21st, A Benefit Dinner will be held at La Bella Vista at the Ponte Club. Individual tickets, as well as full tables of 10, are available. This will be a very special night for friends and family to gather. Please send a message here on gofundme or email@example.com for tickets. Many of you know my phone number!! Call me.
Thank you all for continuing on this journey with The Poeta Family and for being there for them throughout the past year. WE ARE POETA STRONG!!

Nina is home from the hospital. She is being cared for by Mom and Dad and Cara. A nurse is with the family, too.
A beautiful event took place at Nina's home Sunday when the Daughters of Charity, a group of sisters from Mother Teresa's Order, came to pray with her. A crowd of friends and family, close to 200 strong, surrounded the outside of the house and prayed while the sisters prayed inside.
Today is a another very special day for Nina. First Selectman, Kurt Miller, has proclaimed it , "Nina Poeta Day" in the town of Seymour, CT. He encourages Seymour residents to, "recognize Nina's strength and courage and to wear pink and grey as a symbol of their support of her fight."
I would like to extend this to all of Nina's supporters throughout the world. Please say an extra prayer for Nina today and wear pink and gray. Also, please share Nina's story with your friends and neighbors. Today, Nina Poeta Day,would be the perfect day to meet our goal of raising 100,000 dollars to help the family during this grave time.
Thank you all for your continued love, prayers, and support. The Poeta Family is remaining strong because of this amazing rally from around the country and beyond.

Many of you may not know Nina had to be admitted today at Smilow. Her oxygen level is low and she may be dehydrated. Of course she does not take this time to slack off. She had her new computerized communication board brought to the hospital this afternoon and hopefully will be saying, "I love you" to mom and dad and Cara tonight. Thank you again for your continued support. God Bless You! #ninastrong

Just another option...the Gerson therapy is a cancer treatment without side effects and can often be used in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments. It focuses on juicing to give your body the nutrition that it needs and by getting rid of toxins. Prayers and best wishes from Beacon Falls!!! http://gerson.org/gerpress/the-gerson-therapy/
