My precious 3 year old niece, Cecilia Perkins, had been fighting a hard fought battle with lymphoma for the past year. Many of you have generously supported her and her family through another GOFUNDME page (Strength for Cecilia) and at her benefit fundraiser, last November.
Unfortunately, yesterday afternoon, July 2, she lost her battle and is now dancing in heaven and making the angels smile.
Cecilia and her parents, Amanda and Bernard, spent the last year traveling to Scarborough for treatments and to Portland, to the Barbara Bush Children's Hospital, where she had been for the past 3 weeks, before developing an infection which her little body could no ,longer fight.
Between travel/medical expenses and missed work without pay, they have little left to live on and support Cecilia's 5 year old sister, Elathia. At this point, funeral and headstone costs are beyond their financial capabilities. We want to do as much as possible to honor their little fighter and celebrate the short but extrordinary time she shared with the world.
Any help, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated, and your karma will thank you.
