Mami Flor's Cancer Fund

At the end of July, Flor Macias, the dearest of mothers and wives, was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. When they found the tumor in her colon, the cancer had already spread to her liver. The doctors determined that chemo would be the best approach, hoping that after six months, the tumors in her colon and liver would shrink enough that they could be surgically removed. Liver tumors are especially risky to remove because sometimes the liver may not grow back fully, and the doctors need to leave enough behind for the liver to continue to function adequately. Flor, her husband, and their three kids have to wait and pray.

Flor only qualifies for partial coverage through Medicaid. To cover the costs of her chemo alone will be upwards of $50,000. She is too sick and weak from the cancer and treatments to go back to work. Amidst caring for Flor, her husband is doing everything he can to make more money, but it isn’t enough to cover the cost of treatment.

We need your help today. And we will be forever grateful for your sacrifice, no matter how big or small. Even $1 does make a difference!  It is our hope that through this experience, we can surrender to generosity and find ourselves all a little more connected to one another. Thank you! Love, light, and blessings.

“In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.” Elizabeth Gilbert

Al final del mes de julio, nuestra querida Flor Macias fue diagnosticada con cáncer del colon, etapa IV. Cuando ellos descubrieron el tumor en su colon el cáncer se había extendido a su hígado. Los doctores determinaron que quimioterapia sería la mejor opción, con la esperanza de que después de 6 meses, los tumores en su colon y su hígado se encogieran lo suficiente para ser quirúrgicamente removidos.  Los tumores en el hígado son especialmente difíciles de remover porque en algunas situaciones el hígado no se regenera completamente. Flor, su esposo, y sus tres hijos solo tienen que esperar y orar.

Flor solamente califica para la cobertura de Medicaid parcialmente. Solo para cubrir los costos de su quimio será un estimado de $50,000, mínimo. Ella está muy enferma y muy débil por el cáncer y el tratamiento para seguir trabajando. Además de cuidar a Flor, su esposo está haciendo todo lo que él pueda para hacer más dinero, pero no es lo suficiente para cubrir todo el costo del tratamiento.

Necesitamos su ayuda ahora. Y siempre estaremos agradecidos por su sacrificio, no importando cuán grande o pequeña su donación. Hasta $1 hace una diferencia! Es nuestra esperanza que a través de esta experiencia, podamos unirnos más en generosidad. Mil gracias a todos.
