This is my close friend, Christina from Denver Colorado, with her little miracle baby, Ava Isabella. A friend of mine for over 17+ years, Christina has been bravely fighting Triple Negative Breast Cancer for the past 3 years. Beautiful from the inside and out, Christina has always put on a brave face and remained positive throughout her ordeal. She's done chemo, radiation, and finally a mastectomy. Helping support her through these rough times has been her husband of 5 years, Ernesto Monne, her 22-year-old daughter Alyssa, and close friends and family.

She was declared cancer-free a few months ago and while taking an experimental cancer drug discovered she was 7 months pregnant. (Both Christina and her husband had dreamed of having a child after winning the battle against her breast cancer; however, they were told that they would have to seek alternative options as this was not possible). Yes, Christina and her doctors did not realize that she was pregnant until after the 7 months as the lingering side-effects and other medical issues masked her morning sickness and fatigue. A doctor even mentioned to her after confirming her pregnancy, "If ever there was a miracle to make someone believe that there is a God, it surely is this one." Needless to say, she had several weeks to make minimal arrangements to baby shop via her hospital bed as she was not released from the hospital until Baby Ava had been delivered. She ended up having Ava early due to pregnancy complications but was able to take her home about 20 days after she was born.

Now Christina is fighting for her life again. Her cancer is back and has spread to her liver. She is considered terminal at the young age of 38. She could have weeks, months, or years to live depending on how her cancer responds to the chemo and other treatments.

With your help, the hope is to provide some relief to her husband, Ernesto Monne, who is spending his daytime hours working to take care of their medical and all other bills that go along with daily living and who is spending his evening hours being Mr. Mom to a less than 2-month-old premie and not to mention be super-husband and rock to his wife Christina. While the last thing on their minds right now are medical expenses, (which includes paying a caretaker for Baby Ava while Dad is at work), it is still a reality that exists.

Once again, many thanks in advance as your generosity not only helps them financially, but lifts up their spirits, too! And if you don't have anything to donate, I would ask for you to take a minute of your day and send out a prayer for her healing!

Acts 20:35
“In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
