Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

My mother, Eleanor Mateo, is not just my mother but my best friend. She has always been there for me through every tear, smile, laugh, scream, dirty diaper, and fart. She has seen it all and has not failed once in being there by my side when I needed her most. She is the strongest person I know and for that, I thank her. I would not be here if it wasn't for her and neither would my brother. I'm here today because she needs me now. She needs all of us. She is suffering from a severe dental abscess which has made eating, drinking, and sleeping really difficult for her. She has tried several doctors, clinics, hospitals but she can't afford the treatment that she needs. The doctors have said that she needs her teeth removed completely, treatment will be done to get rid of the infection in her gums and other places it may have spread. After her operation, she would need to get dentures. The pain that she feels day in and day out breaks my heart and living so far away from her makes me feel helpless. This woman has gone beyond being a mother, a best friend, a second mom, a neighbor, and co-worker. She has touched many of your lives and now it's time to truly help the wonderful woman we all love.

"I have known Eleanor (cookie) since I was in the seventh grade. She took me in like I was her own daughter. Always made sure I was safe and taken care of. She is now my neighbor and what a blessing it is. When times are rough she's always there to help me even though she doesn't have a lot. That's just the kind of person she is. She truly is an angel." - Kathleen Lopez
