Help us help Yolly's family

On Monday August 6th, our beloved nanny's son Lester passed away from a sudden heart attack, leaving behind a lovely wife, Kristine and a sweet daughter, Sophia (whom our son refers to as his "best friend Spia"). Lester and his family have been visiting Yolly in the US since mid-June, and in a few weeks, Kristine and Sophia will be going back to the the Philippines without their husband and father. 

Yolly is a part of our family. She is the one who first sounded the alarm that something was wrong with Wes, which led to his leukemia diagnosis and successful treatment. We would not have made it through the past few years without her love and support. She lights up our lives.

Funds will be used to cover funeral and other costs, and to help support Kristine and Sophia as they settle back into life in the Philippines without their primary provider.
