My good friends the Cicero family have been through a very hard couple of years, with illness affecting each and every one of them.

Let me introduce you! Mom is Misty, and she is a single mom of 4 children who are her world, and she has provided for them without any help or financial support from her ex-husband.


Her oldest is Gabe, 19, while her oldest daughter, Taylor, is 17, and her twins, Kylie and Joey, have just turned 14. Misty herself is battling cervical cancer, for the third time in her life, and the situation now is that she will be undergoing a hysterectomy in August, with enforced bed rest for several weeks after that, resulting in a total loss of income.

I am hoping to raise enough for Misty and her family to get through that period of enforced absence from work.

  • UPDATE: Misty postponed her potentially life-saving operation as she just had no way of surviving with no income during the long recuperation period. It is imperative she has the surgery done soon.

Over the past few months Joey has had a tumor, thankfully benign, in his breast, and has suffered a lot of pain and stress as a result. Taylor has suffered from a serious colon disorder and has been hospitalized twice.

Gabe has had fluid on the brain and a growth in his forehead. Kylie fell and broke her ankle and it was not set properly with the result that she still has a problem while walking.


Misty almost died when a tooth abscess burst and infected her bloodstream - she had not had the abscess attended to for lack of money and insurance. Joey had an abscess burst recently too. The house the family lived in was found to have a serious black mold problem which MAY have contributed to the serious ill health problems the family have suffered through.


Through all their trials and tribulations, the family have survived and supported each other. They deserve to come through all this terrible time with smiles on their faces. I hope we can count on your support to help them achieve that!

Taylor and Misty in happier times. Let's hope we can get them smiling again!Taylor and Misty in happier times! Lets hope we can get them smiling again!
