Support Fran Lara and Family

The end of November 2017 Fran Lara Garcia came down with what everyone thought was a regular cold. Her cold didn't end up going away and turned into pneumonia. She was then hospitalized and  during her stay is when she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. They told her she would have about 6months to live. Needless to say the family was shocked including her 16 year old daughter who is a junior in high school.
           Fast forward to today February 12, 2018, only 4 months later her cancer has progressed quickly. She has stopped eating for about 6 days now and the nurses have given an estimate of her passing with in the next week or so.
           I created this go fund me to help with funeral costs,  bills and to support her youngest after Fran is no longer with us.  Some of her children have been working to keep up with bills and rental costs of where Francisca is being taken care of as well as supporting her youngest daughter. Some of the kids have had to take time off work  to be at home to help keep up with pain medication for their mother. This means getting behind with bills and not being able to save any money. To make matters worse, the landlord at the apartment they are living at gave them notice about a month and half ago to move out by march 1st. As everyone knows after the fires, finding an apartment right now is almost near impossible and incredibly expensive. So please anyone who can help financially would really take the stress of money off their shoulders. Thinking of paying for a funeral or financially supporting their 16 year old sister is the last thing they are thinking of while keeping their mom comfortable during her last couple days. 
              PS. my name is Katherine Lara, and I was given permission by Francisca's children to post this. If anyone knows of someone who is renting an apartment can also privately  message me with info and we would be forever grateful for all of your efforts.
