THE STORY:

Dear Friends, My name is Isabella Ferreira and tennis is my passion. As well as participating in the 2017 Children Helping Children tennis tournament (for the second time!), I would like to help raise money to help kids with cancer and other maladies. These unfortunate children are restricted to spend much of their time in hospitals instead of being able to indulge in neither frivolous nor worthwhile activities like most children. Also, cancer has affected my family. My great aunt Tia Adalgisa died of stomach cancer this April. She suffered greatly. The parts of her stomach infected by cancer were cut off in operations to the point where she could only eat spoonfuls of food. This caused her to become bony and abnormally skinny. Her voice over the phone always sounded so fragile and I couldn't stop myself from crying - she was very close to my heart. In the end, the cancer spread to her other organs. What struck me the most was that she always had hope and asked everyone to pray for her. She definitely died in peace. My great grandma (Abuelita Edna) died of stomach cancer as well - thats why I only got to meet her once. Many members of my family have died of cancer and by donating to this webpage, you will prevent possible despair and grief that could destroy a family. You will also be making a difference in a child's life. They will be able to enjoy the rest of their lives and make a lasting difference in the world - all thanks to you. And maybe, just maybe, they might decide to indulge in the simple joy of playing tennis. Thanks for your support, Isabella Ferreira
