Bernessa is loved by family & friends. On Feb 12, 2015 Bernessa found her way home to God. Her wish: to help others that follow her journey

March 8, 2015

Our Querida Bernessa has found her way back to God. She is now healed and is our Angel and that of others who like Bernessa believe and fight for Live, Healing & Hope.  Bernessa was at home embraced by love and surrounded with everything special in our lives.

To help others, Bernessa created last year the "Bernessa Life & Healing Fund" and thru a local non-profit cancer foundation in San Antonio, we are helping other women with small grants to support their healing efforts.  We will share more in the upcoming months.


Patricio & Bernessa

ABOUT OVARIAN CANCER: Known as a silent killer. No signs, no symptoms. More than 20,000* women are diagnosed every year. In most cases too late.  We need to share this because whatever you do, it is important you remind your loved one to ask for proper testing.*

In October of 2013 Bernessa was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. We need your help with related medical & out-of-pocket expenses not covered by insurance. 

Bernessa has now completed tow rounds of chemo, and surgery. And has no embarked on a trial with the potential to save her life. But the fight is not over. Daily nutrition, and complementary therapy are key to her success.  Unfortunately it takes funding to cover expenses outside medical insurance.

Would you join us today and please helps us make a difference in Bernessa life!

Together, Bernessa and Patricio stand strong, but it is not easy.  A positive, worry free environment is key, as well as peace of mind, and time to heal, and overcome.  An essential need is strong nutrition, supplements, therapy, and rest.  Rest is key to healing, but time away from the daily hustles of life come at extraordinary financial efforts, not to mention the emotional challenges they face every day.

Raising the necessary funds here, to help them, is vital and so is the opportunity through this medium to share Bernessa's journey. 

Bernessa's happy go lucky approach to life has healing powers, and her wonderful strong spirit continues to touch our lives and inspire us all.

Let's do this!  Together let's make a difference in Bernessa and Patricio's life today.

We love you all.  Know your prayers and kind words fill our hearts :) Thank you for being in our lives.
