Arminda Rocha Needs Your Support

Many of you know our mom as Mrs. Rocha, the smiling face that graced the halls of Cunha and Half Moon Bay High School for over 20 years. Others know her for her years of service helping both Our Lady of Fatima and I.D.E.S. Organizations. Since coming to this country from the Azores in 1976, our mother Arminda Rocha has always been there to help anyone in need if she could, family, friends, and the kids from the schools she’d patrol. Now our mom needs your help.

As many of you may or may not know our mother has been going through a difficult time the last few years. She's in kidney failure and on dialysis 3 times a week. She's suffering from COPD and heart disease, both require her to be on oxygen 24/7. And recently she was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer, which in a normally healthy person can be handled quickly, has required several surgeries and doctors are unsure of how to treat it and causing it to possibly spread.

All of these items added up has caused a huge financial burden on our parents that Medicare and supplemental insurance doesn't cover. Any little bit will help ease the stress of finances so that our mother can focus on her health.

Thank you all in advance,
Elizabeth Caprista & Suzie Rocha
