Sarcoma Fundraiser Video and Update!
NOTE: This is from an older post. Donations are always welcomed to help get the family through these hard times. Thank you! -Moshura's sister. 12/2009
Marco is on his way home!!! Doctors performed tests on the liquid/gel that was starting to form in his lungs and they did not detect any cancer cells, which is GREAT!! More updates coming soon!
This is from V:
Last night Raul & I held a Fundraiser for the family at J Lounge in Los Angeles, Ca. Our family and friends came together to show their support, their words of encouragement, positive thoughts, and words of prayer. All shared joy in hearing the latest updates on Marco's health.
News of Marco being transfered out of Intensive Care was received with an enourmous cheer. We all spent the afternoon sharing warrior stories about the whole family to all who came to show their support. Everyone signed a beautiful Journal with personal notes for the family that were received by Marie with an open heart. Marie has heard all of your best wishes through our daily conversations but reading your personal notes were a true blessing. In tough times like these your words of encouragement and support are priceless.
With the help of all, we raised $ 2,500.00 in two hours for the family. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. In addition we thank those that have sent us letters and card with your generous gifts. We wanted to thank Maricela, a lifetime friend of the family, for starting the silent auction idea and helping make it a success. The silent auction helped increase the fundraising endeavors. Thank you to all who sent prized donations to help our cause. Our cousins Brenda & Pedro gave prized USC Football tickets. Our brothers and sisters donated items and tutoring services. Our friends Maricela, Jorge & Patty, and Jenny & Jim generously contributed Movie Tickets, Limousine Services, and Movie DVDs. We truly appreciate the support.
If you were not able to attend the Fundraiser you're contributions are still kindly appreciated!

You all rallied to help our family's fundraiser,
V & R
