Hope for Vilma

My mother Vilma was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  If you have met her, you know she is a woman of incredible strength, compassion, humility, and faith.  Even today she puts her friends and family before herself.

She will need surgery followed by radiation therapy. On top of that, my mother lives in Guatemala where options for care are rare and are all in the capital, five hours from where she lives. Our family in Guatemala is doing everything they can to provide transportation, food, and a place to stay during treatment. 

My mother has given every part of herself for me and my sisters. Family is everything to her.  Any donation you can give can help us give a little back. We can never repay her for all the love and sacrifices she has made for us over the years, but we will try our best to show her what she means to us and to support her in her time of need as she has supported us through our most difficult times.  We humbly ask for your support and thank you with everything we are.
