Four years ago, my son Mario was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, cancer.  Mario has been bravely and faithfully battling cancer. He always puts a smile on everyone's face no matter how bad he's feeling.   As his Mother, I sometimes wonder who’s holding who up!

 While Mario has remained very optimistic and positive during this battle, the multiple rounds of chemo and radiation has taken a toll on him physically and financially. He used to work in construction for 25 years so he was in great shape when got ill.

Mario needs to travel to Virginia for a 10 day treatment called CAR T-Cell therapy.  Mario and Joni are financially responsible for their airfare, hotel/housing, car rental and food while under going treatment.

 We are asking for any donations to help Mario financially get to Virginia within the next 2-3 weeks.  Our family deeply appreciates any donation.   The program does not pay for the initial testing, but will pay after that for the month he has to go back for putting the cells back into his body.

Thank you all so much for your continued love and prayers for our Mario!   God Bless You For Your Kindness!
