THE STORY:

When Maria Vasquez Rojas was 5 months pregnant she found out two things. One that she was having a baby girl and two that she had stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. Maria was 31 at the time with no family history of prior illness. Maria chose to continue her pregnancy even with a terminal illness and her daughter Ellie Rojas was born January 2011. Ellie was a blessing to the family among the dark journey her mother was about to embark on.

Maria was a wonderful woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend to so many. She valiantly fought the battle for her life trying multiple treatments until she passed April 2015. Maria's dream was to see her little girl Ellie Rojas grow and learn and become a wonderful person. Sadly that dream was cut much too short.

Although there is nothing we can do for Maria now but pray for her family, husband and daughter, this fundraiser is intended to raise funds to ensure Ellie has an education fund to help her achieve her future goals. We hope this fundraiser will help bring some light to this family during this difficult time.
