Raising Money for Monica

Monica Castillo Perez... 

is the name of my dear friend, my sister... at just 37 years old she’s struggling with Stage 4 Adrenal Cancer - Terminal. 
Two years ago she left her native Costa Rica excited for her future and seeking a better life for her and her two young daughters Samantha (7 yrs) and Sofia (5 yrs). 

During this time she got married, was able to bring the girls to complete the family, and has worked hard. 

Less than 2 months ago, in February 2018, she sought medical attention for her flu symptoms, only to find out she had cancer in her lungs, kidneys, liver... all over her body. 
Her husband hasn't been able to work since she has needed constant medical attention, my family and I are taking care of the girls, and all the while Monica continues on fighting for her life.

Her last wishes are to die in this country, to be cremated, and  to take the girls to Disneyland. 

Monica’s life expectancy is extremely short, we are asking for your monetary support with this part of her life journey. Your donation will be used for medical expenses, living expenses, last journey expenses, sending Samantha and Sofia back to Costa Rica once Monica’s journey is over and hopefully that day at Disneyland. 

Your donation and prayer support will be greatly appreciated. May God bless you!
