Fight for Phoebe

I have three sisters and two brothers; Denise, Gisele, Phoebe, Keith, and Vince. This is a plea from all of us, my mother, and my niece Latasha Marie.

My sister Phoebe has been battling stage 4 breast cancer for almost two years now. During that time she's also been grappling with a divorce from a man she's loved since she was a teenager. Now the cancer has spread to her brain stem and as you can imagine, the prognosis is not good. Phoebe, like so many other women, allowed her husband to handle all of the finances and now she has nothing. We have been working hard to collect the money she was promised as alimony, but all requests have been ignored, the court system is moving slowly, nothing has been paid, and we're running out of time. ANYTHING you can donate to help with Phoebe's services when the time comes would be greatly appreciated. We know what it's like to have a family and expenses, so if you can't give much, it's ok. Every dollar counts!

If you're unable to donate cash, please consider donating;

-red roses for services (red roses are Phoebe's favorite)

-a venue in Hayward to hold the reception

-catering services

-table linens

-or anything else you think may help.

Thank you for reading!
