Beloved wife and mother loses cancer battle

On January 5, 2023, Monique Wallen lost her fight against cancer. Monique and my brother Eric were married for 20 years and they have three exceptional children. She was a mom, our sister, our daughter, and our beloved friend that lived every single minute of the 47 years she had on this earth to the absolute fullest.
In 2019, Monique was diagnosed with breast cancer. She fought and won with style.
In 2020 it came back and for the first time, Monique was scared by this disease.
Then in November 2022 and in just weeks, it claimed our Monique.
Through it all, Monique's larger-than-life personality continued to fill every room with joyful chaos.
There are many obvious impacts of the disease, but direct and indirect financial detriment can be shadowed. In lieu of flowers or memorials, the family is in need of support to pay for extensive medical, hospice and end-of-life expenses.
All additional proceeds will go towards the children’s education (Ian, 17, Mykaela, 16, & Isaac,12) and help to offset the cost of any financial burden.
