Omar's Battle with Colon Cancer

Today marks 1 whole year since Omar was diagnosed with cancer. ONE very long and grueling year, with countless treatments and surgeries. ONE whole entire year without an income. ONE year of mounting medical bills. ONE year of pain, stress, tears and sorrow. ONE year of praying to make it go away. One year of Faith. One year of Living!

ONE year with lots of love from his family. The girls always wonder if daddy is sleeping when they get home, and constantly ask, "when is daddy going to get better?" Their prayer EVERY night is always the same, "Please God help Daddy get better." Giovanni now yells outside his bedroom door for his Daddy when Omar is in his room sick.

It is easy to forget that this is going on when Omar is always smiling and "looks" good. He gets so sick from the poison that runs through his body to kill this cancer. And has had so much pain with his surgeries. The mental pain and anguish is not visible either. When he cannot support his family or physically pick up his kids and hold them.

Please continue to pray for their family and may God bless your holidays.

If each person that saw this and gave just $10 AND SHARED IT and the next person paid it forward we could have the $15,000 to the Mayo Clinic paid off in no time. 


Our lives were completely shattered this NOVEMBER as we learned that THE BEST husband, father, son, son-in-law, cousin and friend has Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
At 27, Omar has just begun the biggest battle of and for his life. He, along with his family, is filled with Faith that God will prevail, but the lives of this young family will be turned upside down for the near future.

A baseball sized tumor was removed with almost his entire colon, however there are spots that have spread to his liver and lungs. The plan is to begin chemotherapy in 3-4 weeks after Omar heals from this surgery.

For now, the girls have been bouncing between 3 of our homes, while Emily and baby Gio have been living at the hospital with Omar for almost a week now.

As Omar is the sole provider for his beautiful young family, we do not know how long he might be off of work as he fights for his life . Another unknown, is how many medical costs they may incur with this terrible disease. 

As Emily, Omar, and their 3 babies lives have been  in complete disarray for a week now, unfortunately they are looking at many months of this confusion and uncertainty. 

During the past few days our family has had devastating news but  have also had an abundance of love and support with everyone asking how they can help.

Please consider donating to this fund so that they do not have to worry about losing their house or bills and other expenses that could pop up with this type of grueling disease not only physically and emotionally, but also financially.

Thank you in advance for anything you can share,
