In May 2018, we received shocking news that my mother-in-law, Esperancita, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Although the doctors were positive that they caught it early and could remove the tumor, they realized during the surgery in June that the cancer had progressed more than what the scans revealed, and they did not continue with surgery and diagnosed her with stage 4 cancer. Although the oncologist has given her 6 months to a year to live, she told him that it is the Lord who counts her days.


Esperancita has put her faith in the Lord for healing, so I have named this campaign "Hope for Esperanza" as Esperanza means hope.

Esperancita started chemo treatments yesterday, and as you can imagine, this has turned her life upside down. For the first time in over 40 years of providing education to hundreds of children in the community, she has had to take a break from teaching to take care of herself (but she is still running Mrs. Arroliga's Kiddy Garden with assistance) which has consequently effected her income significantly. Chemo treatments are expensive and on top of her regular bills, her medical bills are piling up, and many of her medical expenses are not covered by Medicare or her secondary insurance. It is overwhelming!        

Esperancita has a huge heart, and has poured her life into the community in significant ways. For example, as a Fort Worth ISD teacher, she helped numerous special needs and troubled children for almost 10 years. When a family had a difficult child with behavioral issues, Esperancita was the go-to person to provide resources and support. She has been active in church all of her life, dedicating many decades serving as director of Sunday School, and in various capacities in children's ministry . She has invested in hundreds of families who have come through Mrs. Arroliga's Kiddy Garden, giving scholarships sacrificially to families who could not afford preschool. Sometimes she would do without so she could help other families. She is always going above and beyond by tutoring children practically for free, opening her doors to the homeless, counseling married couples, and ministering to anyone who crosses her path.      


Will you please consider giving back to my amazing mother in law who has sacrificed tirelessly for her community? If you feel so led, I have set up a GoFundMe to help with the medical bills that Medicare and her secondary medical insurance does not cover.  Any help is much appreciated whether it is $5 or $1000.

Update on Esperancita 1-5-2018
January 5, 2019, 3:15 pm

Esperancita is doing well! She is undergoing chemo treatments once every other week. In November she started seeing Dr. Alex Bekker, an integrative medicine doctor who uses natural medicine along with conventional. He has given her extensive nutritional advice (she is on a strict diet), lots of supplements to take, and has her on a homeopathic regimen. Dr. Bekker has been a tremendous blessing, as Esperancita has responded very well to his protocols! Many of her side effects have improved, her blood work has better numbers, and she has more physical strength. Unfortunately, in mid-December Esperancita fractured her rib, which has been a discouraging bump in the road. Besides dealing with the pain of that, and dealing with all of the emotions that come with being limited in the things that she can do, she is doing quite well. Please continue to pray for her physical and emotional well being as she continues her fight against pancreatic cancer.
