Hello friends and family,

I need your help. Today, November 18th, I found out that a very special person in my life has a rare and unusual cancer that affects less than 200 people of the world's population.

She is my best friend, sister and mentor. Radhika has always been by my side through the high and low points of my life. I know that she needs all of us more than ever!

This journey is going to be hard for Radhika and for the people that love her, however, we intend to stay very positive. She faces a grueling surgery that will leave with many post surgical effects like having to have speech therapy due to her speech being affected, physical therapy for her head, neck and face as she will be enduring a 4-6 hour surgery and much more. After this, she will undergo a powerful treatment of radiation that will hopefully knock this out of her.

She has been told she will need full time care during her surgical recovery and then need assistance daily to get to and from her radiation treatment sessions.

 

Radhika has helped thousands of young people in her career as an educator in the last 20 years. She has always given so much to me and so many other young people and never asked for anything from any of us. 

 

I'm asking that you please donate what you can so that she can take care of herself while undergoing surgery and radiation. Any size donation will be greatly appreciated! It would mean the world to me if you helped her during this trying time.

 

Thank you!

Love, Marisol
