For the Love of Vivian, a hero, fighter!

Hi everyone, 

I started this fundraiser for my
sister-in-law Vivian Pagani.  She was first diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer in 2016. After a successful surgery and chemo treatment, she was in remission for 2 years. Unfortunately, the Cancer returned and has spread to her liver, lungs, stomach, lymph nodes in her chest and abdominal area. This time she's at a Stage IV.   She has been fighting and fighting and has tried everything possible to beat this cancer but her body is tired. The Cancer Hospital can no longer help her because they have done every treatment possible, but it's still spreading quickly.  She's stopped eating, is in excruciating pain, is so malnourished and her body is too weak to have another chemo treatment.  After talking with her, the Cancer team and the family, she has been transferred to Hospice where they will keep her comfortable until God is ready to take her home. This is where she wants to be.  This has taken a huge toll on the family and her going into Hospice was unexpected. She was given from a few days to a few weeks to live and her family needs help with funeral expenses since she was unable to have life insurance.  Every bit counts.  Everyone that knows Vivian, knows she was full of life, sassy and a strong woman. She's is a beautiful person inside and out and the love she has for her family is strong and the love for kids is even stronger.  This is very hard on all of us, but we would like to make sure that when her time comes, we will be able to have the funds to fulfill her wishes. Even the simplest funeral is ideal for a solider like her.  I will keep you updated on her condition while she is in Hospice and I want to Thank you all in advance for your support. 

 From the Pagani Family
