Mimi Marrero Special Fund

Meet Mimi, Mimi is my friend. She's only 17 months old and was diagnosed with cancer last week. Mimi has leukemia, Pre B All leukemia. We're all still trying to wrap our brains around what exactly that is. Mimi is sweet, beautiful, loving, spunky and she just LOVES Elmo. She's beautiful like her mama and charming like her daddy.

Mimi had surgery today to place her port. That is what they'll use as a direct line to the main artery of her heart to get the chemo treatments in there. They also did a spinal tap today to see if the cancer has spread to her brain, that will determine the course of treatment. Once her blood levels are normal, they plan to start the chemo. She needs lots of blood and platelets to keep her on track so we're also starting a blood bank in addition to this fundraiser. She's O+ so if you are too and wish to donate blood as well, you'll be helping to save a life.

Mimi's mommy Claudia, is a harding working RN and her daddy Edgar is a general contractor. While they do have insurance the financial burden will be overwhelming. Remember, Mimi isn't even 2 yet, she has a long, hard road ahead of her. Please help us, help Mimi. We're hoping to raise as much money for her as possible. All funds will go towards Mimi's care. Any little bit helps. You can donate here as well as at Security Service Federal Credit Union. They have set up an account for her under the Mireya Marrero Special Fund, all you have to do is go in, give that name and donate or you can just donate now using your credit card. It's all very secure and tax deductible. Please donate today.
