POSSEtive that cancer STINKS!


This is the Beautiful Posse Family.  Rafael, Becky, Sofia and Gabby.  There could not be a nicer family in Newport Beach.  This family is full of love and laughter.  They give,  pray and help EVERYONE that needs it.

Now, unfortunately, they need our help.  Rafael is 46 years old.  He loves his girls, he loves to surf, skate and bike.  5 years ago he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.  A diagnosis that shook the whole neighborhood but with his POSSEtive attitude and love for life, well.......we all learned from him that life tosses things at you that are out of your control but that is all the more reason to, "not sweat the small stuff"  He is AMAZING!

 Since 2013 Rafael has had 2  Stem Cell Transplants that put him into remission but were ultimately followed by relapse.  He was just recently diagnosed again for the 3rd time after failed chemotherapy and now is trying to get into the "KITE" trial at UCLA.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  Whether it is the trial, more chemotherapy or a donor bone marrow transplant, this family is stretched to the max.  

Becky is a dedicated teacher, mother and wife.  She has been teaching for over 20 years and has had to take off a lot of time off from work.  She just recently made the decision to stop her Masters Program. She is needed at home and wants to spend time with her family, but she has to miss a lot of work and may need to take a leave of absence to care for her family with the options that are presented for Rafael. 

The money that is raised here will be used to help to support all things involved with the care for this sweet man as well as the trials and tribulations that his family is going through.  The money will be used to help pay for medical bills, to help supplement time away from work and to help with food and every day expenses that accrue during long hospital days and hotel stays related to the trial and/or hospitalizations related to illness.  

To be quite frank, the money raised here will simply alleviate one great worry for a short period of time.  This sweet family has enough to worry about and focus on right now and if we can do anything to help them do that, well that would be AWESOME!

Please consider making a donation of any amount to help this POSSEtive family stay positive and focused on the more important things in life!
