Pay it forward, help save the life of Vanessa Perez

Vanessa Perez is starting 2015 in a hospital. She is fighting for her life.  Vanessa has stage 4 stomach cancer. She also has a 4-year-old son. Doctors gave her six months to live. That was four months ago

I learned about Vanessa and her cancer from a post that Jacqueline Guido put on our Wise Latinas Linked Facebook page today.  I don't know Vanessa personally, but  anyone of us could be her tomorrow.  We could be hoping for a miracle and hoping to stay one more day on this earth, especially for our children. 

There's a fundraiser going on for Vanessa on GoFundMe.com . She is undergoing a natural treatment in San Diego she hopes will help her survive.  Here's a video she shared on YouTube.





Lourdes Colon underwent the same natural treatments when she had stage 4 cancer. Today she is doing fine. She produced a video for Vanessa's fund to explain more about the treatment.



Today Lourdes posted a photo of Vanessa after a week of treatments, and it appears she is walking and doing much better.  But she needs more treatments and that's why the fundraising continues.
