Battling Leukemia & Guillain-Barré

Zeca and Mara came from Brazil about 30 years ago. They became citizens and worked endlessly in order to achieve the American Dream for them and their children. Daughter, Melissa (18) in NYU, son, Lucas (14) in high school. Zeca has Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Mara is Zeca's sole caregiver. Please help them stay afloat. They don't want extravagance. They need to keep their home and pay their bills. I asked Melissa to help me surprise her parents with this endeavor. Help them continue living the American Dream.
