Supporting the Balbaira Family

Sarah Padilla (Balbaira)is a beautiful wife,  loving mom to two beautiful young boys and a dear friend to many. On August 23, 2019 she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer.  This news is of course devastating to Sarah and her family and friends however they are facing this new challenge with strength, optimism and grace. Many arrangements/adjustments need to be made in a very short amount of time as Sarah begins her chemotherapy treatment on Monday September 9.  We are more than confident that Sarah will beat this but during this stressful time it is our goal and hope to relieve the family of any financial burdens.  Sarah's treatment will be physically and emotionally challenging and the family will need a significant amount of support.   

The goal of this campaign is to raise money for childcare (hopefully a nanny), naturopathic support, medications not covered, missed work for Dean and anything else that arises.

We are also working to create a freezer meal train for the family so there is one less thing they need to worry about.  Please contact, or if your interested in providing a meal and we will work to sort out delivery or pickup from one of us.  

If you are unable to contribute please keep this beautiful family in your prayers.  It takes a village and right now this family needs their village.

Sarah, Telsea and Malaika
