As some of you may be aware of, my cousin Lupita Betancourt, is battling cancer for the second time. She was first diagnosed in May of 2017 and had successfully defeated it. Unfortunately, the cancer returned this summer and she is once again fighting it bravely.
For those of you who don’t know Lupe, you are missing out! Lupe is a wonderful mother to an incredible little girl named Marcela, who turned 9 in August. Lupe loves being out and about with her little one. They love taking ferry trips to San Francisco, but most of all they love the beach. Monterey is one of their favorite places to visit. It’s been a bit difficult to continue to do these activities, but we are hopeful she will continue with her normal life.
We are reaching out to you today for help in relieving some of Lupita’s major stresses so she can focus on continuing her fight and getting better for her family. With these funds we are planning to help cover medical and living expenses. Donations can also be made through Venmo searching for @kmagana or Katie Magana. I will personally see to it that your generous donations go directly to Lupita.
It takes a village to survive through the toughest moments of our lives, so we thank you all in advance for your support. Many people have reached out with warm, positive thoughts and my family greatly appreciates it.
