The family and friends of Sam Salustri are uniting to help her pay off medical debt after the passing of my Dad, Carl Salustri.

As many of you know, my beloved dad Carl Salustri just passed away this past Sunday, July 24, 2011 after a two-year battle with cancer. He was diagnosed with Stage 4 malignant metastasized melanoma in September of 2009 and told that he had no hope of living beyond 6-9 months. Upon hearing this devastating news, Mom and Dad committed themselves to absolute dependence and hope in God and a steadfast determination to live. Together, they endured two very difficult stretches of chemotherapy as well many hospital stays, surgeries, blood transfusions and treatments.
For those of you who know my parents, you will understand that they truly exemplified perseverance, longsuffering and love in this process. I couldn't be prouder of their efforts and faith even when circumstances were very much beyond them. Even though the prospects were very dismal, I honor my parents' valiant endurance. As I'm sure you will agree, my Dad will be dearly missed and his character and courage forever admired.
What you may not know is that my parents, while covered by medical insurance, still acquired a significant amount of medical debt during this process. I'm hoping to rally support for my mom, Sam, as she begins to pay off this medical and also business debt-- unfortunately without the help of Dad or the benefit of a life insurance policy.
If you would be so kind to help contribute to this fund, I would be deeply grateful. In lieu of flowers, please consider a gift for her benefit.

With sincerest gratitude,
Lisa Weir

If you would prefer, you can also send her a check addressed to "Hermoine Salustri" at 4365 W. Lake Circle South, Littleton, CO 80123.
