Dearest community, friends, family, acquaintances near and far:

Please extend your caring solidarity to our friend, our sister, our activist in struggle—Leani Auxilio.

Leani is currently battling cancer and other health issues with the strength and determination that would and should scare any illness away. For anyone who has met Leani, she has been an incredible force of imagination and community within the social justice and feminist circles— most recently, as the Co-Coordinator of the NY Chapter of AF3IRM. She has the gift of being an artist and illustrator & is probably one of the most talented, charming, and humble woman warriors in the city.   

2019 is the year she must focus on her healing as she will begin chemotherapy.  This will prevent her earning a living, aside from burdening her with unconscionable medical expenses.  We all know how medical care is in this country.

To help with her basic living expenses, support her new dietary needs, and also, to assist moving her dream forward of selling her artwork and attending an online portfolio class— we’ve estimated a modest NY budget of $1000+ budget/month.

Friends of Leani 2.0 ask you to help Leani beat the odds.  Beat cancer.  Wrest her life back from illness. Still in her 20s, Leani has a lot of life to live, a ton of art to share, and many more lives to impact with her vision, her anime love, and her ever NY, dry humor. Onward to Leani 2.0!

UPDATE via MARIVIR

“Just an update for today. Nikki was supposed to have her chemotherapy but 1 new medication hasn't arrived. So it will be on Monday, I suppose. She has urine retention problem as of now. Unable to pee without a self- catheter. This seems to be a result of the Nov. Full colorectal surgery and the recent chemotherapy that had a big impact on her mouth sores and dehydration. The postponement of the chemotherapy may be providential for it allows more time for her to heal her bladder. Please continue to pray for nikki.”

Give what you can. Donation. Love. Words of support. A little goes a long way. We love you Leani!

Hello:

Thank you all for donating thus far. As you might imagine, this has not only been a physically and emotionally challenging journey, it has also been a financial one.

For any and all who are able, please continue to donate what you can— $1, $5, $10, $20– funds that will all go towards ensuring that Leani can continue to focus on her healing without worrying about the everyday financial burdens of such an expensive city like NY.

With love,
Friends of Leani 2.0

UPDATE FROM MARIVIR

Dear friends,

Thanks once again for your love and generosity that has made Leani's healing journey encouraging. She has finished 4 of 6 cycles of chemotherapy. Each cycle is an onslaught on her physically but she has an indomitable spirit that will persist through all these challenges. Her holistic treatment of vitamin therapy, good food, chiropractic, and other modalities are also on full swing.

As such, we appeal to your kind hearts for continued support. Many thanks! As a mother, no words can express my gratitude to you all. God bless.

May is around the corner. As promised, a monthly update. Marivir and Leani have faced some challenges this month, but of course— have risen above and beyond. Last Friday, Marivir moderated a discussion with Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2018, political prisoner and journalist, Maria Ressa. Despite the physical toll of traveling from Queens to Manhattan, it was a momentous occasion for Leani because it was one of the first times in awhile that Leani has made it out of Queens. According to Leani she “slept through the event after about 20minutes of trying to stay awake ✌️“

Leani’s general update in her own words:

“But I'm so far so good. Eating a lot. Skipped chemo this week. Stressed out because I don't have a job and therefore can't pay my bills or buy what I want though. Lol.”
