Calvin's Fight For Life

Organized by: Carla Mathis

Hello Friends, Family & Acquaintances, As many of you know, The Sonnirea’s have been dealing with cancer in their family for over 9 years now. In 2008 Calvin was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma a blood cancer, but you wouldn’t know it by his fun loving uplift spirit and his love for “James Brown”. By the grace of God Kelly has been a rock and a great support for her family throughout this time, but the long road stretches even further. Calvin will be undergoing three months of extensive cancer treatment where he will need around the clock care. They need our help! There is no better time to demonstrate Gods love but to this family in their time of need. For those who know Kelly she is a rare jewel, her friendships run deep and wide; however it is always hard to ask for help.  Kelly and I have been best friends for almost 29 years and Calvin is like a brother, so I’m asking for the help on behalf of this family. Calvin’s treatment will take place out of town and Kelly needs to be there to care for her husband. Kelly has worked 7 days a week for the past three years two of which have been in her Fashion Boutique Flare by Sonnirea of which she is liquidating to raise the money to help. She has only been on her job a short while and does not have enough vacation or sick leave saved to take that much time off. We'd like to take away that worry for Kelly and allow her to concentrate all her energies on Calvin’s health instead. These funds will be used to assist Kelly and the family with medical bills and living expenses not covered by insurance during Calvin’s recuperation. There is one other desire that I have for Calvin, because the focus should not only be on sickness but living life, we would love to give him a 1970’s throw back party taking him back to his “James Brown” days so whatever is left of the money raised, we will have a party where everyone who gives would be invited to celebrate Calvin’s Fight For Life. Thank you for the love, kind and generous support!
