This fundraiser is created to help Christina Torres pay for her medical bills and get the best care at home to beat her stage 4 cancer.

I am starting a fundraiser for Christina Torres who is one of my co-worker's wife. Christina is the proud mother of 4 children and was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer after given birth to her 4th child.
The story is tragic on its own but when you add the component of financial burden and no medical coverage, then I think everyone can relate to the cause.
Christina will start intense treatment on March 30th to try and reduce the tumors that have started in her colon and spread to her liver. Her oncologist will not operate her unless this treatment works.
She is receiving basic care thru Harbor UCLA and their hardship program but I want to give her the best chances possible to beat this and supply her with proper foods and supplements...education is key here and I am doing my best to send her husband home with supplements and added knowledge.
We never know what life has in store for us and having lost my father to cancer, it has made me so aware of the power of this disease, and more importantly, it has open my heart to the need of others...extending a hand because I can is my rule...please extend yours...
Many thanks !
