Single Muslim Mother with Cancer

It is with great pain that I write this. Our dear friend Diana Saballos has been diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma and will be undergoing a second major surgery February 22nd Insha’Allah. They will be removing half OR her entire voice box to get rid of the tumor, followed by radiation treatment. 

She is already sacrificing a lot by taking care of and providing for her nephew.

From now until then she needs to focus on her health and strength. She is still working because she needs to pay rent and support 2 kids. However she will have to stop working for a while after surgery while she undergoes radiation treatment and recovers from surgery.

We are asking that you please help in any capacity you can. Donate toward her rent/food, prepare her halal meals and deliver it to her, recite a juz of the Qur'an on her behalf. 

If you want to prepare her a meal or recite a juz of Qur'an on her behalf, please sign up below: 

May Allah swt reward you!
