The friends of Heather Perez are uniting to raise money to help with her battle Anaplastic large-cell Lymphoma.

A very good friend to all of us, Heather Pérez is fighting for her life. Heather went into the hospital with stomach pain and as a surprise to all of us, she was diagnosed with lymphoma in stage 4 and her kidneys were shutting down and while giving dialysis she went into cardiac arrest and hasn't woke up since then. She is on a respirator and being administered drugs to her to basically to keep her alive. According to the neurologist, Heather has little brain activity.

Heather is at Bergen Regional Hospital in Paramus NJ in the ICU unit.

***UPDATE*** Heather has begun receiving dialysis today and her body has responded well to it. They will be starting chemo-therapy tomorrow. Although this will be a long road to recovery for Heather, we all have faith that she will come out on TOP!

***UPDATE 11/30/11*** Heather has received a tracheotomy today. Unfortunately, according to the neurologist, Heather still has little brain activity and therefore she can not undergo chemo-therapy. We are all praying for a miracle at this point!

**UPDATE 12/5/11** It breaks my heart to write this update. As many of you all many know already, Heather passed away. Heather had such a big heart and was always there to lift all of our spirits, always there to give us a smile and some kind words and make your day brighter. Heather had so much kindness and compassion for others and she was truly happy for people when good things happened to them…it is such a shame that the world lost her so soon, but she is at peace now and onto a higher calling!

Lets have faith and continuing prayer for her life.
