Sofia's Funeral & Children's Future

I write this with tears in my eyes and a broken heart as a Mother, Wife Grandmother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Cousin and friend has left us to be in heaven. 
She leaves us her greatest gift Lupita 5, Cynthia 7, beto 11, Jocelyn 21 and her grandson JR 3.
A heartache during the holidays and right before Christmas and New Year. 
We are asking our family, our friends and friends of friends or even if your a stranger and just happen to
come across this page to help us with anything even if it's $1, $5, $10 (anything) to give Sofia the proper burial she deserves. We hope we can raise enough not only for her funeral but for her children who are now at home with a single dad. The least of the worry should be money but we all now that's not always the case.

We also know not everyone may be able to donate at this moment but if you would just help us spread the word with just a share and most importantly a prayer, that also can really make a huge difference. We appreciate all your help, We truly didnt expect her death so soon. 

If you would like to take the time to read sofias story please look below, Warning its long but I think its only fair to share with you Sofias strength and fight and most importantly because of the help you guys can bring to our family during this hard time.

Around 2-3 years ago Sofia was in a very minor car accident, everyone was ok and they all went home that night with no worries not knowing that this would only be the beginning. Sofia started complaining about a lump and pain around the lump by her left breast and well after they ran test we got the worst news STAGE 4 BREAST CANCER. We were all heart broken but as a family ready to fight. This brought her down hard but her mother instinct told her you need to fight for them at the time Lupita was 2, Cynthia was 5 and Beto was 8 and Jocelyn 18. And long story short she went through chemo, radiation and breast removal. And well she was cancer free and we thought YOU DID IT!!

Well yes, she did but fast forward a few months later another lump with pain on her neck area.  However this time the stupid doctors decided a couple months later from the day she told them to check if it was cancer. But it was to late cancer was stage 4 again and it had spread to liver, kidneys, and lungs. This was so hard on her but she didnt give up and was ready to fight again.

Fast forward month after month and chemo after different chemos and none seem to work. When Chemo starts working in one area the cancer finds its way to another part of her body and at this point doctors have told us its terminal and they just want to find a way to basically put it to sleep so it stops spreading since the cancer was so aggressive and fast. 

Now let go back 2-3 months ago when she felt a lot of pain and a hard lump on her left arm which ended up being a blood clot. Her kidneys had also gave out and had to have surgery to insert a little tube  to drain fluid build up from it every 2-3 days for possibly her entire life, most or just some of it. 

And well this Wednesday  12/20/17 she goes in the hospital early due to feeling out of breath and her heart beating to fast. Doctors run all kinds of test and are pending results and well the results would be left pending because around 8:00pm her heart stopped and  there it was gods calling for her to go to heaven. 

We thank every single one of you, may god bless you and I just want her to rest and for her children to remeber the beautiful life their mom lived and how beautiful of a person she was.
