Mother of two battling cancer

33682700_1539973431297932_r.jpegMy beautiful friend Aronka is facing the battle of her life after being diagnosed with stage 4 Liver and lung cancer this summer.

I’ve known Aronka for over 20 years beginning as her high school mentor.  She has become a part of my family.

She is fighting to see her children grow up. As a single mother with two precious boys at home Dade (2yrs) and Zayden (10mo) she has so much to fight for.

Aronka worked two jobs until she was diagnosed. Since the diagnosis she had continued to work at least 20 hours a week until recently. She is no longer able to work due to the physicality of her job.

She is fighting with all she has for her boys but she needs your help. By contributing you are helping her worry less about the financial aspect and allowing her to focus on her fight for life.

In order to keep her apartment, insurance, medications that insurance doesn’t cover, clinical trials/treatment, and care for the boys when needed she will need the help of friends and others who wish to contribute.

Aronka is a mother, sister, daughter, friend, and so much more to the people that know and love her.

Please take a moment to consider donating to this family as no contribution is too small to make an impact. If you are unable to donate at this time please spread the word or share.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.33682700_1539973565185893_r.jpeg33682700_1539973614874186_r.jpeg33682700_1539973668257346_r.jpeg33682700_1539973717843294_r.jpeg
