Bring Mom Home

Our mother, Josefina Salinas, was recently diagnosed with incurable lung cancer which has spread to her liver.  Her medical team in Phoenix, Arizona, has advised us that they have been unsuccessful in finding a cure.

Her last wish is to come home and spend her final days with her friends and family in Espanola, New Mexico. 

Unfortunately, our mother's insurance policy will not cover the expense of transporting her home.  Therefore, we are asking for your generosity in helping us grant her final wish.  All the funds will be used towards the transportation costs.  

We are praying that we can bring her home in time for Christmas, or shortly thereafter.  

We understand that finances during the holidays are limited, therefore, we appreciate any amount that you can provide.

Thank you for your kindness,

The Salinas Family
