Hi Everyone!!! In the name of Team Maria Ritz I would like to thank you all in advance for taking the time to read this post.  We are reaching out to all of you, friends, family across and  beyond borders to help , and support Maria in yet another big battle against Cancer. 
For those who don't know Maria let me give you a bit of what her life has been for almost 10 years.

In June 2010, she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, had double mastectomy, and massive rounds of chemotherapy and radiation in the subsequently months. We almost lost her to tell you the truth, but her willingness to live , her special connection with God and the support of many friends , and family she fought through and beat the cancer, living with the terrible side effects caused by the cancer treatments. You name it, she has it all. Throughout all her ordeal, she always put on her make up every single day, a big smile in her face and shine, feeling blessed to live another day... until last year.

During summer last year she was diagnosed again with Cancer, this time located in the bladder, and spine. Had three surgeries to remove the tumors in her bladder. now she needs to face more surgeries to tackle the spine. The first surgery will take place at the end of the month, the goal is to take tissue samples in order to determine what type of cancer the doctors, and Maria will be dealing with, so the doctors can plan a course of action.

So here is the reason of why we are starting this GoFundMe  for Maria: 
Plain and simple with the upcoming surgery on April 30th, she will be faced with medical bills, medicines, and living expenses until Maria is able to be back to work, which in the best case scenario will be in a few weeks.

Although she won't tell anyone if she needs monetary help, when asked and she will say: I'm not worried GOD will provide, HE always does!!. Well, I'd like to think that today HE decided to use me as an instrument of his will, and after connecting with some of her friends, we want to help her easing the burden creating  this fund raiser.

In many ways she is been a gift to many of us. Now we want to gift her back with some Peace of Mind, providing her with monetary help to pay the expenses , and most of all to give her the most needed words of encouragement .  So  please, bless Maria donating for her Battle, she needs all the possible fighters on her side.

Thank you!
