Tony’s Funeral Arraignments

26330224_1515815944.7139_funddescriptionThe story below was the beginning of our journey to help support my dad & his fight. 

As of now my father has taken his last breath at 6:00pm today Jan 12, 2018. Just 3 hours of me getting here. His last wishes was to have all his daughter’s there by his side & we were.  We watched & held his hand as he took his last breath & watched his last tear fall.  We still need help with funeral costs as it is so difficult for my sisters & I️ to come up with the costs. 

We love you so much dad!!

Hello, my name is Mariah Frato & my father wanted me to start a Go Fund Me account for anyone who loves him to help donate anything for his up & coming bills along with helping his children. My dad's fighting for his life battling Stage 4 Lung & Bone Cancer, with 3 Tumors in his Ribs & Spine, along with Dementia. He wants everyone to know He LOVES & APPRECIATES everything & anyone who has, can & will help him with anything.
My father’s name is Anthony Frank Frato Sr. also known as Tony, Born July 22nd, 1956 being only 61 years old born & raised in Hell’s Kitchen, Bronx, NY & now living at Rosary Hill Hospice Center in Hawthorne, NY with only 1-3 months to live. He is living for his 6 beautiful children & 3 grandchildren ages range from Anthony JR. (AJ) 29, Joshua 26, Mariah 25, Deanna 17, Krysta 16, & Jordan 14, & Serenity 2 (Mariah), Raiden 2 (AJ), Azalea almost 1 (Deanna).

My dad was diagnosed August 29th 2016, with Stage 3B Lung Cancer. My father has been through 2 Chemotherapy Treatments, 4 Radiation Treatments with 3 Tumors that disappear & came back. He has also had Neck & Spinal surgery so he wouldn’t become paralyzed due to the tumors being on his spine. Now he has Stage 4 Lung & Bone Cancer. He wants everyone to know that this has been the worst pain ever in his life & just finally wants to rest. It breaks my heart to know I can’t do anything to save his life. It’s breaking my heart even more knowing I have to start to prepare for my father’s Funeral arraignments within the next few months.

I honestly wish cancer never existed! We’ve lost way too many family members to cancer. FUCK CANCER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anything helps in a horrible time like this. We would like to thank everyone! We love you!!
