In February 2015.....I got a phone call that Araceli had been given months to live from her doctors and that there was nothing more that could be done. The tumors have taken over. Through God's grace and mercy, and with the constant support of family and friends, she has been fighting this. Her mind is strong and her spirit is stronger. There are no tears from her, only smiles and jokes. Her faith in God has kept her going and given strength throughout all this, However, the strain to meet financial obligations is a difficult one.
My beautiful cousin, my friend, a single mother of 4, a woman with the most beautiful smile and the biggest heart.... who is dying of cancer and I/we can't do anything about it.
I'm helpless here. The only thing I know how to do is to organize. Organize and bring people together. So here I am ...doing a portion of what I'm good at and organizing this fund for Araceli and her kids so they can take the time off they need without worrying about how they going to pay the bills and focus on making Araceli comfortable before she goes.
If you read this in it's entirety, I thank you. I am in all honesty...crying. Grieving. Hoping....that the people who are in my life will see how much this matters and means to me and will help out with anything they can. No gift is too small and every penny contributed will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for all of your support. Please Share and God bless you!
