Medical care and funeral

Hello everyone. As some of you may or may not know, my sister in law Theresa has been battling breast cancer. She seemed to be coming through it well until about 5 weeks ago. She was having a lot of pain and was admitted into the hospital when we learned that her cancer spread. Through these 5 weeks she has been declining very fast! Incredibly fast! It is very sad to see her declining and knowing that there is nothing we can do to help her. She was finally discharged home on Friday but sent home on hospice. That means that she is basically home to be with her family and spend the end of her time as comfortable as possible. Her and Mike have 5 kids 25, 23, 21, 11 and 7 months! My heart breaks thinking that 6 months ago they were planning a cruise and now he is trying to plan for around the clock care and eventually a funeral.

Over the next weeks I will be spending as much time as possible with her but I will also be selling some things to raise money. I am doing this because I know for a fact that we could not have paid for Veronica 's funeral without the help of everyone. This is a huge emotional strain for their family and I hope that I can relieve part of the stress as well.
Please keep her family in your prayers. We pray for time and comfort. For Mike, Theresa, Javier, Joe, Julio, Anna and Reyna as well as her mom (Linda) and brother (Daniel) and sister (Angela).
