My Humble Medical Expenses Request

Family and Friends,

As most of you know I have been battling pancreatic cancer since 2010. It has been a very "different" journey for my sons and I. We have survived chemotherapy, radiation, and three surgeries.

I am very lucky, because despite all this, I am able to do what I love most, which is to work as a kindergarten teacher. I have medical benefits but there are other expenses not covered by my insurance.

I am at my most humbled place, going through all this. I have always been the sole provider for my sons and I. That is why this is probably one of the hardest things for me to do; to ask for assistance large or small would help me with my accumulated medical bills.

I am so fortunate to have so many family and friends who pray for me and my family in getting through this and with your help, it will ease some of the stress.


My family and I thank you for your kindness & generosity,

Elma Dadivas Gatus, Jerome, Brian, Christopher and Tyson
