Filimaua Family Fund

Tomato Filimaua was diagnosed with cancer in October of 2016. Shortly after the diagnosis she underwent weeks of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to remove the sarcoma from her thigh. During her recovery and follow up scans her doctors discovered the cancer had spread to both lungs. There have been many appointments to discuss different treatment options but due to the size of tumors and blood clots in her left lung surgery or chemo is not an option. Tomato and her husband Robert, were sent home earlier this week with the reality she has weeks to live. Tomato will spend her remaining time in the comfort of their home being loved and surrounded by her husband, six children and three grandchildren. During this time many medical bills and cost have been accumulated and we would like to afford Tomato and Robert the ability to spend her last weeks together. Any prayers and help are appreciated for this family while they reminisce about the blessed times and say goodbye to their precious wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
