In this holiday season, there is a mother and child who have to be away from their Pauoa home in order to seek medical care.
Mom and her 11-year old son have been in Washington state since summer.
The brave boy is battling cancer — he lost a leg two years ago because of it and now he’s receiving aggressive treatment of his cancer.
He has two younger brothers, ages 3 and 7. Their grandmother is taking care of them, but she is now dealing with health issues as well.
This family and those who care for them say any help to relieve their financial burden would be appreciated.
In the spirit of Laulima, working together, we can make a difference for this family with not a handout but with a helping hand to get them through this difficult time.
