Making Special Memories for Martinas Girls

Organized by: David Harder

THE STORY:

I'm Martinas Dad. As many of you are already aware of, my sweet Daughter Martina has been fighting cancer for 4 long years. Times have been hard as we have had many ups and downs during this battle. Martina is 37 years old and is the loving mother of 3 beautiful little girls, ages 4, 9 and 11. After Matinas long couragous battle with cancer, her final diagnosis is terminal. Last week, what we hoped would be the turning point in her battle with cancer, didn't end that way at all. Tina's team of Doctors at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. told us that the cancer has progressed to the point of being inoperable. She has been given the sad news that she will only be with us for several months to a year. With heavy duty chemotherapy, she may survive a while longer. It goes without saying, we are totally devastated with this recent diagnosis. We have decided that we would like to be able to give her and her girls the best possible times that are possible with what time they have left together. I, myself am going to rent a large wheelchair van to allow her and the girls to go on day trips together. I want them to make some lasting memories that her girls will have forever to remember their Mom. I'm doing all I can do in my power to see that this happens. For those of you that know Tina personally, know what a kind and loving person she is. She is a giver of unconditional love with a Hugh caring heart. She needs this special time with her girls as much as they need it with her. If you can find it in your hearts to donate any amount to this fund it will not without reward. The reward will be the feel good feeling that you will have knowing that you have given to Martina and her girls. This funding will be used for a variety of things such as trips to the zoo, amusements parks, picnics and fun activities. Of course other expenses such as operating cost of the van and some needed medical supplies which Tina will need to make this all possible as well. A parent should never have to say goodbye to their child. It's not the way things are supposed to work. I am heartbroken over this and vow to make my Baby's last few months with her family as good as they can be. Will you help me out with this? From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. God Bless You All.
