For Manny, Mikey & Anthony

Lila Rodrigues was a loving mother, wife, friend, sister and daughter who bravely faught a horrible disease we call cancer, for 8 years of her life. On September 11th, 2016, all of her friends and family organized a fundraiser to raise money for her and her family during their financial hardship. Ever since then, her husband, Manny, has been staying home by her side to help her through her final stage in life. Meanwhile, bills still came in and her two sons, 12 and 15 years old, still desperately needing her.  It is with a heavy heart that as of yesterday, June 8th at 10pm, Lila's fight with cancer was finally over. She was 41 years old. Now, leaving her husband with their 2 young sons to raise on his own, we are asking for your help in supporting Manny, Anthony and Michael. Any amount will be greatly appreciated. Anyone that knew Lila, knew she would give the shirt off her back to whoever needed it. Now, we must help her husband and sons in her honor during this extremely difficult time.
