Final Expenses for our Mama Teresa

Our dearest Family and Friends.
Our beautiful mother Teresa J Sanchez has been such a strong, warrior and fighter, as she has battled the most aggressive cancer since June of 2013. After more than four years of living with melanoma, it has come to a time where there is no longer anything doctors can do to cure her or extend her life any longer. Over the past four and a half years she has undergone several surgeries, chemotherapy treatments, radiation and immunotherapy treatments and done so with the most faith that a human being can possibly have. With a smile on her face, she went about life as best as she could, and continued to spread the love in her heart to everyone she came around and touched.
As of October 19, she has been in hospice care at the home of our sister Erica, and declining rather quickly. We are now spending every possible moment with her and cherishing this time that we have by her side. We are united and strong as a family in faith and love. We have appreciated the outpouring of love and support for mom in the past weeks, as we know she has been loved by SO MANY. The amount of lives that she has touched is quite amazing and something that we will remember always.
At this time, we are reaching out to all of you, in hopes that we can raise the funds needed to lay her to rest when the time comes, in the place where her heart desires, amongst her family members. Any and all donations to this gofundme page are immensely appreciated by our family. We know that our mom has helped many many people over the years and we are praying that this is the time that everyone will unite to give back to our beautiful Queen. 
If you prefer to send a donation privately, please do so by reaching out to one of her daughters Lydia Macen, Monica Sanchez Cortez, Erica Sanchez,  Reyna Cardona or Rachelle Cardona directly. You can also send her one and only son Manny Sanchez Jr a message of love and support as well, as he is very much the apple of her eye and will be affected greatly by this.
We thank each and every one of you and ask that you continue to keep our mom and our entire family in your thoughts and prayers during her final days.
With love,
Lydia, Monica, Erica, Manny Jr, Reyna and Rachelle
