We are thankful to have a way to keep family and friends updated in one place. It is clear that Monica is nearing the end of her life due to the progressive genetic disease, Alpha-1 Antitrypsine Deficiency. Living with this disease is not a battle, more of a long journey and has caused my mom to live on the deepest level possible, nothing and no one has been taken for granted.
With Monica's condition, it is very difficult for her to talk over the phone or in person, she is also no longer able to keep up with her email. The best way you can help my mom and connect with her is to send messages through this site and send letters! The letters we have received have been a huge gift. I am putting together a book of pictures and letters for Monica which I am trying my best to finish the book by the end of September. Please send your letters to 24300 NW Timber Rd, Forest Grove Oregon, 97116.
We are so lucky to have such amazing friends and family who have been such a support through this time. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
