My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. ( I have fought the good fight, I have kept the faith. HenceForth, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness 2 Timothy 4:7-8 ) Rafy was a warrior , he fought this battle with courage. He touched everybody that came across him . He was just perfect , he was funny, smart, handsome, sarcastic and understanding. He showed all of us something that no matter how big the battle , you keep on going. He never felt sorry for himself, he always found away to smile through his sufferings. He suffered alot , you see theirs not much options for children diagnose with cancer . He was the strongest and most kind person we ever met and is truly miss. No child deserves to go through this .It is the worse thing in the world. We miss Rafy with everything in us , But he is now in peace. We need more. We need more then 4 % funding. Thank God for organizations like St. Baldricks. #TEAMRAFY #GODHASMYBACK #WEWANTMORE
