Rita's Medical Funds

My dear friends, I don't even know where to start.....

My family got stricken with a horrible news, few month ago, after delivering a premature baby, my sister in law got diagnosed with inoperable cancer.
We've thought we had a little more time to fight back but seems like we are running out of time.........
More than 20 years ago Leon moved to Minnesota, where he meets a Love of his life. Back then Rita was a beautiful young lady.  When Rita turned 18 they got married and from that moment on they have never separated, 20 years together as of now. Within these twenty years, they grew stronger and stronger. They have shown an example to all of us how to be a loving family.  They were and they are a TEAM. 
Rita and Leon have three boys, always wanted a baby girl, but were happy with what God gave them.  Not too long ago they've  welcomed a new addition to their family and named him Anthony (Antoshka).  For a few months, they were One big and happy family as usual until that day that ruined everything................
For the past few months, everything was more or less under control, but lately, Rita's health declined drastically and she is unable to do what she does best-  to be a mom to her kids, wife to her husband, a friend to her friends. She spends all her time in the hospital where doctors unable to help her.
Rita's wish was to visit family in Florida, where she stays right now. Family in Florida is in the hospital with her 24/7, not leaving her room for a minute. Everything would have been easier, but their kids are in Minnesota. 
We all praying and hoping that Rita will get better, so they could go back to their kids and live a happy life but... At this point, Doctors cannot tell us how much time she has left and if she ever will be able to travel back to Minnesota.
My dear friends, I am asking all of you for help,
if you can and/or want to help, please DO SO. 
I am starting this fundraising for Leon and Rita's family, to help them with traveling expenses, babysitting and living expenses.

God Bless you all!!!
