Be the Captain of Your Ship

Our sister Maria Peña-Morales was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and has been going through numerous treatments to heal. This year, on July 30th, we found out that her doctors are now recommending she undergo surgery for a bi-lateral mastectomy. On the very same day, her husband Hugo also received word that he was being laid off from his job.

Medical bills and living expenses are starting to pile up quickly, especially with both of them not working.

Maria has done so much for so many of us in the past. While she is the first one to take on a cause, to organize events for charities, or make hundreds of jars of her homemade salsa to raise money for others, she is the last one to ask for any assistance. We are now rallying to help her through this difficult time.

If you or someone you know would be willing to contribute to help Maria, please click below. Please feel free to share this link with others who know Maria. Donations can be made on this GoFundMe "Be the Captain of Your Own Ship" campaign. Thank you for your love and thoughtfulness.
