Help the Cardinale Family

It is with a heavy heart to announce that our classmate, Francesca and her sister, Annalisa, lost their dad back in July of this year due to a tragic car accident. Francesca, 21, and her sister, 23, are now mourning the loss of their mom due to a battle with cancer after years of fighting. With no other immediate family, they are enduring the most tremendously painful time of their lives. With a passion to help those around her, Francesca is currently a nursing student finishing her 2nd year of schooling at FIU.

As her classmates trying to support them, we are asking that you extend a hand of generosity to help these two sisters move forward in their new normal. While we recognize that these are challenging times for us all, we strongly believe that together, with what we can, we will be able to support her as a community. Your generosity will be aiding them with funeral expenses and new living costs. 

Anything and everything helps!

Thank you so much!
