Luana is no stranger to adversity as she has faced life's devastating blows such as losing her husband 5 years ago unexpectedly to a heart condition.
Despite her terrible loss, Luana remained strong for the sake of her son Pablo (14), and Pamela (11) who were both young children when her husband died.
Now, Luana finds herself again at odds with life's unexpected surprises such as being diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer. It took a couple of visits to the ER for the doctors to see that what she had was not mastitis or any other infection, instead, it was an agressive stage 3 Inflamatory Breast Cancer. Luana is now once again persevering and showing her friends and family that life is worth fighting for. However, fighting cancer is not easy and it comes at a cost. It takes a lot of courage, time, faith, and a lot of money to fight this battle. With your contribution, we can help ease some of the financial burden off of Luana and her kids. Luana will need to undergo a double mastectomy by the end of July to the beginning of August and she will not be able to work for a while due to the major surgery she will go through. Luana has been through many intensive rounds of chemotherapy and besides loosing her hair, she has also lost all of her fingernails and toenails. As a friend, I want to help her and her family. She is a lovely person, a young widow, a great mom, but most of all, she's an inspiring fighter! Please help Luana and her kids overcome this financial hardship through your donations.
Together wer are stronger! Together, you and I can help this family through a very difficult time in their lives.
