Sylvia Romero holds many titles in life; wife, mother, oma, sister, daughter, cousin, and friend are just some of them. Shortly we would all love to see her add the title of "Colon Cancer Survivor" to the list. Seven months ago Sylvia was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. This diagnosis is terminal meaning there is no coming back from it. Fortunately for her loved ones either the diagnosis was flawed or we are all just extremely lucky because she recently had surgery in hopes of removing the remaining cancer. Through the entire process she has stayed very positive and was determined to not only beat it but to not let this horrible disease define her. If there was a method, whether proven or not, she was willing to try it to be there for all of us. That's the kind of person she is. This fund is our way of being there for her. When she closes the door on cancer we don't want her stressing about where she is going to get the money to pay for it. Fighting this fight is enough for one person, we want nothing but peace for her once treatment is complete. Any help you are willing to give is greatly appreciated!
