Help us help a family member who has always been there for her friends and family. Let's give back and show her the love and support that she needs at this crucial time in her life.

Charmaine has been recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Triple Negative Breast Cancer as of July 7th, 2014. 

The cancer has spread to both breasts, her lymph nodes, both lungs, her liver, her stomach lining, and is now in the membrane surrounding her brain.

She has undergone one round of raditation treatment in July 2014 for a mass on her chest that was causing pain, and is doing daily radiation treatments until Sept 9th to shrink masses that have been detected in the lining of her brain.

The funds raised will be used to offset costs to host a large beef and beer event. We will also be using the money raised to help care for Charmaine. Home care, proper nutrition, medicines, and equipment are all very expensive.

We have brought Charmaine home with us now, and have renovated a room in our house so that she has a comfortable place to relax and spend time with family, friends ... and of course her "babies" Freckles and Tyson.

As family, we have always done all that we could to give Charmaine the little "extras" to make her life easier. But we also know that her upcoming needs will be far far more than we can afford ... so we are asking for help.


The beef & beer event will be on Saturday, November 29th from 7pm - 11pm at St. Dominic's Marian Hall. Tickets will be available for purchase from family members once we receive them from the printing company.

As part of the event, we will be offering some very nice door prizes, with the grand prize being a 40" flat panel TV.

We would also like to offer a variety of baskets to be part of the auction at the event ... Below is a list of ideas that we have come up with, and are looking for business or individuals who would like to sponsor one or more of the prize baskets.

If you see one that you would like to sponsor -- or if you have a basket idea or prize idea of your own -- please send an e-mail to or call 267-809-3064.  Partial basket donations and any type of gift cards or gift certificates are also welcomed. Every little bit helps!

For those friends and family that live outside of the Greater Philadelphia area that would still like to contribute to the event or sponsor a basket, let us know which basket you would like to sponsor and then use the CONTRIBUTE button to send the funds. We will purchase the items and put the basket together for you.
