Aloha Family & Friends,
My Sister & I are asking for your support to help lay our mom Annette “Bundy” Tavany Alameda to rest she was a beautiful soul who has been taken from us too early. . .. If anyone knew our mom she was always smiling & could bring anyone's frown upside down she was always the light of the party. Our mom leaves behind 3 children, my sister Tiarre Hauki-Williams, my brother Edward Ranis-Alameda, & myself Joshua Ranis-Alameda. She also leaves behind 5 beautiful grandchildren Sterling Jr. & Tianey Hauki-Williams, Shaylen, Edward Jr, & Shayden Ranis Alameda-Delacruz.
Our mom was diagnosed in May 2014 with stage four breast cancer. The doctor advised our mom of which treatment she/he recommended to do because her cancer was at a very extreme stage. The options were to remove her breast and start intense chemotherapy for a year, then take a chemo pills for 4 years & if she doesn't go through with the treatment she would die within a year. She chose not to do any treatment & to live her life to the fullest. My sister & I was very disappointed with mom’s decision because she was being selfish & only thinking about herself. Our mom saw how her sister Josanne “Cookie” who had cervical cancer went through chemotherapy and radiation, my auntie was always sick, throwing up, weak, & lost all of her hair. Mom also had a friend who suffered from breast cancer who did all the treatment recommended with all that pain & suffering her friend went through she later passed away shortly after her treatment.
Our mom’s choice was not to take the treatment and to live her life to the fullest. Our mom lived for two years & two months after she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in May 2014. My auntie, my mom's oldest sister Bernie, Tiarre and I watched as the cancer spread throughout her body. The last two months of her life auntie Bernie, Tiarre & I did not leave her side we took turns throughout the day/night/week to care for our mom who needed 24/7 care. In May 2016 she started to complain her legs were sore shortly after in June 2016 she was walking on her two feet with a little limp saying to herself over and over while walking “No more pain, no more pain, no more pain” that's how extreme the pain was. She had a strong leg & a strong arm she would depend on to help her with some kind of independence. Early July 2016 she could hold a conversation with us, middle of July she could not talk, she could not walk, nor could she move her body, every move she made she would cry she’s in pain.
The reason for this gofundme account is to honor our mom’s wishes to give her a beautiful funeral & burial service. Taking care of our mom took a financial toll on both my sister and I as we needed to provide 24/7 care for her. Tiarre and I don’t like asking for help but in this case it would mean the world to us to be able to honor our mom’s wishes to have a beautiful funeral & burial service for her. Any amount small or large will help & all donations will be going towards her funeral expense. Thank you all for caring about our mom & I really do appreciate all the love & support!
