Eileen's Farewell Fund

$6,775 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 1 month
Created January 19, 2018
This fund is in memory of Eileen Flores-Chuayiuso: wife, mother, sister, friend, and teacher.


I met Eileen when I was 7 years old at Colegio San Agustin. I loved her sense of adventure, her fierce loyalty as a friend, and most importantly her sense of humor. She was my first true BFF.  She was the "Flo" in our  LeMaJaLaFloRoRam elementary school group of friends: Ledesma, Macabenta, Javier, Layug, Flores, Romero, and Ramos. 



She was an amazing cook and baker, patient clinical educator, and compassionate nurse. And so much more.


After more than two years of valiantly fighting, she lost her battle to ovarian cancer on Friday morning, January 19 at 2:20am. She will be remembered as a fierce warrior, a superhero (our Darna!), a ray of sunshine and laughter, and a true inspiration to everyone who's had the pleasure of knowing her.

Eileen leaves behind a loving husband, three beautiful children, two amazing sisters, one talented brother, hundreds of friends, and thousands of others who at one point shared her infectious energy and laughter.




To help ease the family's financial burden, we are establishing this fund in her honor. 100% of the proceeds will be given to her husband Robert to help cover all the cost of the funeral and farewell party, as well as any incidentals. Any left-over funds will go towards the children's education.

We appreciate any and all help. On behalf of the family, thank you.

On Saturday, January 20, I flew down to Orange County to spend time with Eileen's family. Took the kids to Creamistry, where Eileen used to take them. It was nice to see them smile.

We also donated 6 boxes of Eileen's old medical books (which Gigi painstakingly packed) to a nursing colleague.

In the evening, we all gathered at her favorite uncle, Tito Bobong's home, in Ontario. Tito Bobong expressed his deep love for Eileen, and how he considered her his "first born." He was only 15 years old when Eileen was born. He fondly recalled how he saved up 10 pesos just so he could buy her a set of pajamas for her first birthday.

He also talked about how loved and respected Eileen is in the nursing circle in the area, and how her kids should be proud about the impact their mom has had.

As Eileen would say... "Super WOW! Ang daming nagmamahal sa akin!"

Thank you everyone for the outpouring of generosity! We have already raised 35% of our goal in just two days! We are planning on turning over the funds to her husband Robert by next weekend, so please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE and offer everyone who wants to pay tribute to Eileen the opportunity to help ease the family's financial burden.

On behalf of the Flores-Chuayiuso family, thank you!
