Help Celebrate Moma Tomi's life

"The most beautiful soul, my mom Tomi Van Bladel was admitted to the hospital on 8/10 /2018. My mom was diagnosed  with liver cell carcinoma, a terminal illness with a very poor prognosis. She has decided to forego aggressive treatment and receive Comfort Care only. Her days are limited and we are blessed that she has been receiving so much love and attention at the hospital by family,  friends, colleagues  professors and staff. My mom is an amazing woman who has done so much in her life and has sacrificed so much for me. She is a mother, a grandma of 3, a musician, singer, artist, traveler and nothing short of a badass.  Tomi has touched the lives of so many people and I thank you for the love you are showing to my mother on her final days before she is guided to heaven. To celebrate her beautiful life and to fulfill her wishes before she passes and after, we are asking for donations of any kind. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read, say a prayer and donate!" Rodeo-  

***Moma Tomi is now in peace, singing with the angel's up above. Her spirit now lives in those of everyone who knew her and especially within that beautiful smile of RO Bless you Moma T, love always.

 P.S. Help me help Rodeo. As many of you know, Rodeo will not be home until late September. To help make things a little bit easier on him I have set up this GFM for Moma T to help with all the unforseen expenses. Ro is grateful for your love and support during this difficult time and we will absolutely keep you updated on the celebration of her life soon to come. I met many of you at the hospital while visiting Moma T and i have been a part of Rodeo's life for he past 15 years and i too thank all of you for your support in helping me help him. If you would like me to pass on any messages to him, please reach out to me, otherwise he will be in contact once he comes home in September. Best to you and thank you all for your support to Rodeo and forever in our hearts Moma T.  <3
