The family and friends of Nelida "Mary" Calderon are uniting to raise money to help in her fight against cancer. Please donate!

Mary, mother of fellow law enforcement officer, Manny Puri, was recently diagnosed with stage 2, B-Cell Lymphoma. Her medical treatment is costly and not covered by her insurance. She has to undergo six 5-hour treatments of chemotherapy, each costing $1,900 that must be paid in advance. Over $800 is owed from prior procedures such as biopsies, the insertion of the port-o-cath and $100 co-pays that she is charged for each visit.

As you can imagine, these past few months have been very difficult for Mary, her son Manny and her daughter Amanda, as they face this frightening illness and struggle to find ways to cover the costs.

I humbly ask that you help ease their burden by donating to help cover medical expenses and make it possible for her to get the treatment that she needs. Please know that no amount is too small and that every single dollar counts. Her next treatment is June 19th, so please don’t hesitate and be sure to pass along to all your friends.
