Help Lucy & her battle with cancer

We’re raising money for our beloved Lucy Rios.

Today(10/18/18) we lost our beloved Lucy. Many of you had the pleasure of knowing her and we know how much she was loved. If you didn’t know Lucy had been battling breast cancer for the past five years and unfortunately she has lost her fight this morning.

We are so saddened and completely heartbroken. We love you so much Lucy and are going to miss you more than you would ever know, there has never been a purer soul than you, Rest In Peace our dear friend.

We have been raising money (via go fund me- below) to help her in these hard times and we would love to continue to try to raise some money for her family, so Lucy could get the burial she deserves. So for anyone reading anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated.

Lucy has battled breast cancer for five years. While she had a short remission, unfortunately, her cancer is back with a vengeance.

Most of you know Lucy from her time working at New York Hair Salon. The labor is physical, and sadly, in her condition, she can no longer work. And on September 20, we learned that the cancer spread to her brain. All we can do now is keep her comfortable.

If you’ve never met this amazing woman, you need only know one thing: Lucy would do anything for someone in need whether or not she was financially or physically able. She is kind and generous, and because she would never ask for a penny from anyone, we’re doing just that.

Lucy has one daughter and three grandchildren who live with her and rely on her daily. For her brothers and sisters in Colombia, we’re applying for emergency visas so they may come to spend time with Lucy in her final days.

We desperately need assistance with Lucy’s medical bills, rent, visas and travel expenses.

Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can. Every dollar helps. And it means the world to us, her beloved family. Thank you!
