Team Veiga, cancer fund

Hi, my name is Lauren. My two sisters Fallon and Katie, along with myself, have decided to start a Go Fund Me. We decided to start this to help our parents, Roger and Jacklyn Veiga.

Our father has been diagnosed with stage three Carcinosarcoma primary lung cancer. Our father successfully beat Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 22. However, Carcinosarcoma is extremely rare. Only 1% of 250,000 lung cancers diagnosed annually, and much more difficult to fight. Our family has to go to Massachusetts General in Boston for his doctors visits and surgeries. This will mean hotel room costs food, travel expenses, medical bills not covered by insurance and other living expenses.

We have chosen this website to help assist our parents. Our parents have helped us our entire lives financially and emotionally. It's our turn to repay our gratitude by giving back in their time of need. Please help us, help them, with a donation no matter how small in this trying time.
Thank you for visiting this site and showing your support to our family. Your support and prayers are greatly appreciated in the challenging days and months we have ahead of us!                                                                                                  - Veiga family
