We are the Raffaele Family - parents, brothers, sisters, neices and nephews of Bernice  Raffaele.
 Our whole intent of this is to try to help alleviate the costs that are piling up and and the costs that lie ahead in her devistating diagnosis of Stomach Cancer.  A very aggresive form of cancer that has taken its toll on her very quickly.  In the past months Bernice has had to have a tube feed placed in since her stomach is no longer working.  Bernice decided to start Chemo and three days a week hydration treatments to help extend her life. 
She is a true inspiration , during my 10 days visit with them i saw the real family struggle she is faced with everyday! Ben and Bernice have always lived out of state which makes is hard for  us and we all wish we could be with her in this time of need but the distance makes it so hard. I am hoping we can raise enough money to at least help her not to not have to worry about the extra things she needs in her daily care. Medical supplies can be very costly.
Your support will be used by Ben Raffaele towards her medical costs and to alleviate burdends to their Family.
We are all very thankful of your support. God Bless Bernice. All prayers are welcomed.
Sincerely,
The Raffaele, Reppert and Cicale Families

UPDATE: Bernice is losing this battle very quickly. Yesterday 7/12/17 we were informed that the chemo may not be working anymore and that we may have to look into hospice options. We were told she may have weeks or months but her time is limited. The family is heartbroken since she was responding so well to the first chemo treatments. Please send your prayers, as we will need them. ❤️
