The Story

I'm making this fundraiser page to help with my sister Maria's last wishes and expenses. My big sister Maria went into the hospital on February 22 for stomach pains. She was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage 4 terminal malignant cancer. Although it began in her pancreas and bile ducts, it rapidly spread to her liver, spleen, thyroid glands, and every other major organ. There's nothing the doctors can do to stop it. She was given six months to a year to live at first. After her first round of chemo a few days ago her liver begin to bleed and they can't get it to stop. So now she has jaundice really bad as well. She's completely yellow. That shortened her life expectancy to two weeks to two months. Her son said that they don't think she'll make it past Saturday. They will be releasing her in the next few days so that she can die at home with her family. She's completely devastated and shocked right now. It was all so sudden and unexpected. My family and I are trying our hardest to stay strong for her. She's so young and has always been so full of life. She's so tough and strong. I know she won't give up and she won't go down without a fight. She does not have any life insurance. Being only 41 years old I guess it just seemed too soon for all that kind of stuff. It's going to be extremely difficult on my family to cover the cost of everything. Wake services, music, cremation, ect. She wants to do a bio cremation. That's where they take your ashes and turn them into a tree. It's such a wonderful idea and so like her to do. She has such a beautiful soul. She's one of the most amazing, caring, graceful, beautiful people I've ever met. She's intelligent, charming, bouncy, cheerful, high-spirited, colorful, dazzling, magnificent, radiant, charismatic, gorgeous, and just all around perfect. She's so delightful and irresistible. You fall in love with her the moment you meet her. She's absolutely lovely and exquisite. I truly cannot believe this is happening. We are all overwhelmed with emotion right now and praying constantly. That's really all we can do at this point. It would be absolutely wonderful if everyone could please share this post for us. Thank you. We love you guys so very much.
