JAIME

9-27-19

Maybe it’s a coincidence, but it’s been 10 months since our mom, Palma Di Cesare, has passed.
Over the last few weeks/month, we have been talking with friends of a wonderful woman named Jaime. She has been fighting a battle of her own with breast cancer. She is a very humble and hard working mom of 3 boys.
Our foundation was founded in Palma’s name to help people going through tough times of their own. When we heard about Jamie’s story we wanted to do something to help her and her family.
Today, 10 months to the day since Palma has passed, we donated $10,000 to Jaime and her family. May God Bless you and guide you through this.
We would like to thank all our donors and everyone involved to make this possible because together we can all be the Helping Hands to those in need!
Mom we miss you, love you and do this in your name, please continue to look over us and guide us along the way. 🕯🌹

Robert and June

10-17-19

Over the last couple weeks, thanks to Cathy Colasanti Russo and Lydia Di Cesare, we have been in contact with a wonderful couple named Robert and June Gosik.
Robert was diagnosed with stage 4, renal cell carcinoma, in Nov 2011, at the age of 41. He’s been battling it, for the past 8 years, he is currently 49. Last December, he found out the cancer has spread to his bones, in his rib cage, which has been painful. He’s been hospitalized, 5 times, in the past two years. He was receiving immunotherapy, since January, but can no longer receive it, as it is affecting his liver and pancreas, causing more pain. He is currently taking oral chemotherapy.
This beautiful couple has been together since they were 15 and 16 years old, and will be married 31 years in January. They have 4 children, three of which still live at home, and one who is disabled, with epilepsy.
June loves being a nurse. Shes spent the past 32 years helping those in need.
When we read this story and talked to them, we wanted to give them a small gift this holiday season.
This afternoon, Helping Hands of an Angel, donated $9000 to this family. We know this doesn’t fix anything or heal anyone. But we hope this helps in their journey and makes the holidays just a little bit more merrier.
We would like to thank all our donors and everyone who helps and volunteers their time. Without you, none of this is possible. Together we can all be the Helping Hands to one another.
We do this in our Mothers honor. You’ve always taught us to help others and pay it forward. We pray everyday you’re looking down on us and guiding us along the way.🕯💗
We love you and miss you and do this all in your Name, Until we meet again......🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

BRYLEE

8-31-19

This morning we had the great pleasure of meeting a beautiful 6 year old girl named Brylee and her wonderful family. Brylee is in stage 3 Kidney disease, she was born with her left kidney not working so she has been in and out of the hospital all of her life.
We have been speaking with her grandmother over the last month and after hearing more and more about this lovely young girl we had to meet her and her family. We can all just imagine how hard emotionally it would be to see your child go through something like this, let alone all the time off work, stressful nights and medical bills that come with the situation. Brylee has a special insurance, that’s roughly $1500 a year, that helps with just the kidney issues she has.
After hearing all this, we wanted to help. So this morning, in Palma’s name, we donated $7000 to this wonderful family to cover a years worth of the special insurance and the rest going to support the family. We know this doesn’t fix anything, but we hope this helps this beautiful girl and her family in their journey. May God bless her and guide her along the way.
We would like to thank all our donors, sponsors and everyone who supports our foundation. Together we can all be the Helping Hands to those in need.
Mom we miss you and love you dearly. We want to continue your loving, generous, and caring ways. You’ve always taught us to be kind and help in any way we can. We do this in your honor, please continue to look over us and guide us along the way
Till we meet again.....🌹❤️🕯

STEPHANIE AND JOE

12-24-19

Earlier this month we were told about a couple named Stephanie and Joe.
Joe has been having health problems. He has been in the hospital for over 30 days on separate occasions in the last 6 weeks. Joe went into the hospital the 1st time October 14th. He was in full congestive heart failure, kidney failure, and respiratory failure, all caused by legionnaires disease then septic shock .. he was 9 days on life support and a total of 19 days in wyandotte hospital. The next time Stephanie took him to the doctor's for a follow up appointment and his blood pressure was 70/50. So they sent them to the ER, where for 6 days, they didn’t know what was going on but knew his lungs were filled with fluid. They then sent him downtown where he had a blood clot in his heart, pneumonia and low kidney function, and damage to his lungs from a medication he was given last time in the hospital. Joe again was put on a ventilator to help him breath ... he is now starting to make some improvements but not close to being out of the woods. His heart function is very low and they are not sure if it will get better.
When we heard their story we wanted to help in some way.. Palma was a very caring and generous person. Especially when it came to kids. So this morning in Palma’s name we brought over some Christmas gifts. Hearing the worries and issues this sweet family has had, we wanted to help alleviate one worry. This will not fix or heal anything, but hopefully for at least one day it’ll bring some Christmas cheer and help make the holidays just a little bit merrier🎄🎁
We would like to thank all our donors and everyone who helps and volunteers their time. Without you, none of this is possible. Together we can all be the Helping Hands to one another.
We do this in our Mothers honor. You’ve always taught us to help others and pay it forward. We pray everyday you’re looking down on us and guiding us along the way.🕯💗
Merry Christmas to everyone, enjoy your holidays and cherish who you spend them with and anyone you wish you could spend them with. God bless to all 🎉🎊🎁🎄
We love you and miss you and do this all in your Name, Until we meet again......🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

ART AND LAURA

7-11-20

This morning we had the great pleasure of meeting a wonderful family that was nominated by Tom and Angie Lorkowski.
Art, Laura, their beautiful wonderful daughter Audrey Tacderas and Art’s amazing parents.
They are a loving family who all came together to one in need. His parents moved from out of state to help their daughter in law. Art is a wonderful husband to his wife. Audrey, we can’t speak highly enough about her, she is a special young lady who has done everything she can for her parents and her mom.
Laura was showed her first symptoms of MS in 1994 but wasn’t officially diagnosed until 1996. She went for along time with out showing her disabilities but in 2000 after giving birth her symptoms progressed dramatically. She started using a walker in 2006. She started using a Wheelchair but was still able to stand up and walk a little in 2008. By 2014 she was primarily in a wheelchair but could still stand. By 2015 she wasn’t able to stand. She has been unable to sit up unassisted for the last two years. Her means of getting around is her powered chair and after fighting insurance for three years, they were finally able to get her a new powered chair in October of 2019. Through it all she has always shown a great Spirit.
So this morning our foundation donated $4000 to get new flooring to help Laura be able to get around the house easier.
We want to thank all our sponsors, donators, volunteers and everyone who has helped along the way. Whether it was lending ear, advice or just support when it’s needed, we thank you all!!!❤️❤️❤️
We do this in Palma’s name . She was a beautiful generous lady and we continue to try and honor her memory. We all miss you and love you. And we will keep trying to make you proud. Until we meet again♥️🕯...

Ashlyn and Trey

7-26-20

This morning our foundation had the wonderful pleasure of meeting this beautiful family.
Here is their story
5 years ago Rachel was involved in a car accident and sustained a traumatic brain injury, it was a long recovery but went back to work after missing a school year. Soon after she started having a lot of health problems, sadly after being diagnosed with multiple autoimmune diseases and other medical conditions she had to resign from work 2 years ago. Her mother in law is also in the end stages of ALS and they lost her father in law to pancreatic cancer 2.5 years ago.
On may 19th their daughter and husband were given some very stressful news. Ashlyn is pregnant and is due in September. When she went for her check up, they were told the baby has a medical condition. The baby was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Ashlyn will be delivering the baby early. Once the baby is born, there will be a lengthy hospital stay along with multiple surgeries.
Ashlyn and her husband Trey have decided to move from Arizona to Michigan so they can take the baby to U of M for medical treatment. They moved in with their parents now along with their 2 other children. But moving in with their parents and moving across the country along with all the foreseeable medical bills and stresses of this, they are trying to build a loft in the barn for more room for the family to live. With everything going on it’s completely understandable the stresses this wonderful family is going through.
When we read this story we wanted to help. This morning in Palma’s name, our foundation donated $5000 to help with setting up the room in the barn and helping with any other bills or medical concerns needed. We know this doesn’t cure or fix anything, but hopefully it will allow some comfort or relieve a tiny bit of stress in their journey.
We want to thank all of our donors, supporters, volunteers and everyone who has helped and supported our foundation along the way. May god bless you all
Mom we does this in your honor and your name. May you continue to look over us and guide us along the way. We will always try to honor your memory and continue your generosity and loving ways. We miss you and love you ♥️♥️♥️
Until we meet again...🕯🌷

Amanda and Tony

8-28-20

Over the last couple months we have been talking to Diane Celeste, who nominated her daughter in law Amanda , here is their story:
Amanda was diagnosed with breast cancer in December of 2014. Her cancer is estrogen driven. The cancer has come back in her shoulder, rib and in her hip. She has had surgery to remove the cancer from her hip but they are watching the cancer in her rib and shoulder at this time. She is taking chemo treatments currently. Amanda is one of the most upbeat people you’ll ever meet and thinks nothing of volunteering to help out anyone in need at anytime. Tony helps in every way he can. He cleans the house, does the laundry and cooks. He also prepares shakes that are beneficial for her blood counts.
Amanda was originally diagnosed in 2014 with Stage II breast cancer. In 2018, she had a reoccurrence, with the cancer returning with a vengeance & metastasizing to her bones, classifying her now as Stage IV metastatic breast cancer.
Even through her multiple diagnoses she continues to have a positive outlook on life, & has become deeply passionate in advocacy. Amanda has become a Young Advocate for the nonprofit, Living and Beyond Breast Cancer, particulates in organizing multiple fundraisers & events for the cancer community, & with her husband has also created their own LLC named Metastica. When it comes to assisting others Amanda is extremely passionate, but when it comes to her own story she is more humble & comfortable giving, then being on the receiving end.
They have a wonderful family and beautiful children and are an inspiration to all.
So this afternoon in Palma’s name our foundation donated $13,000 to this amazing family. We know this doesn’t fix or heal anything but we hope it helps in their journey. May God bless them and look over them.
Mom we do this in your name and in your honor. We want to thank all our supporters, volunteers, sponsors and everyone that supports this foundation. We will continue to do this in your name. We miss you and love you very much and will always try to make you proud. Until we meet again...♥️🕯🌹
