Meet Monica Suarez, a 30-year-old from New Jersey with a 6-year-old daughter. She and her husband were married in November 2022, just one month before being diagnosed with Stage 2A Hodgkins Lymphoma on December 23rd, 2022. The diagnosis completely blindsided Monica and her family.
Due to her treatment, she was forced to take short term disability from work for 6 months. Even with medical insurance, she and her family are facing $3000 per month in medical bills alone and are blowing through savings account funds. Additional childcare costs have also been a burden as they need to ensure their daughter is well cared for on the days of Monica’s treatment, and also to ensure that she is able to be dropped off/picked up at school. This has also taken a toll on her family’s finances, and they have burned through all of their savings on medical treatment. In her own words, “My family and I struggling to make ends meet, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.”
L.I.F.E. is blessed to be able to answer the call to help with funds that have been entrusted to our organization in their time of need. Stay strong Monica, we wish you all the best towards your recovery!
