Denise's Breast Cancer Memorial Fund

100% of the donations will go to covering funeral cost for my beautiful daughter Denise and any remaining funds will be placed in a savings account created for her 2 young children Athena (13) and Jayden (9 years old).

In 2011, Denise was diagnosed with breast cancer. This young single mother took that dreaded diagnosis and decided that day to fight the disease and be a survivor. Over the last 2 years, she underwent a mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy and even remission, but only to see this dreaded disease come back with a vengeance.


On Monday morning, at 3:03am- our beautiful daughter, mother, sister, niece, granddaughter and friend took her last breath. It was so hard watching a beautiful person, always so full of life, love and smiles fight a rapidly advancing disease.


In lieu of flowers, we are asking that our friends and family make a donation of any amount to help cover the cost of the funeral. As of today, we do not yet have a date for the funeral, but are hoping to announce one in the next week. We want to thank all of our family and all her friends for being so supportive over the last few, very difficult months. It was that support and love- that continues to help us move forward.


"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love." - Leo Buscaglia
