Maribel's Medical Fund
Late last year, in December 2016, after Maribel, having her anual mammogram, followed by a ultra sound and Biopsy. Maribel, was called in on a Sunday evening to see her doctor to discuss results.
We knew something didn't sound right. That night we got the bad news. She was diagnosed with "Triple Negative Breast Cancer" on her left breast. A news no one is ready to receive. I'll tell you this, my wife is Very Strong but news like that would break down the strongest person. We were staying positive because the doctors found it early. We went home that night and broke the news to our 3 daughters. It was extremely heart- breaking, but I knew as long as we stuck together we can overcome anything. Today, my wife had a bilateral mastectomy, and will be going through a few different procedures in the next upcoming months. We have faith that everything will be just fine. She has a lot of support from family and friends and she is loved by many. Soon she will be needing Chemotherapy and Reconstruction surgery. She will be out of work for several months and we are asking for all those who may know my lovely wife Maribel, help us out in this time of need. Any donation no matter how small, is humbly appreciated.In behalf of my wife, thank you all for your prayers, cards, emails, posts, phone calls and visits. Your support is the fuel that keeps the fire burning for Maribel's fight. Words simply fall short to express her gratitude.
Thank you all and God Bless
The goal is to fight this monster called CANCER!
