BOSTON: Two younsters from Albania need medical $$.

Dear Friends,

We would like to introduce you to two little heroes, Daria, a 5-year old girl from Korca, Albania and Gentian, a 14-year old boy from Peja, Kosova. The stories of Gentian and Daria are unusual. They did not travel to Boston to visit family or friends. Dana Farber Hospital has been their residence since they landed in Boston. Despite their young age, they are both currently engaged in fighting an unfair battle against cancer.

Gentian's and Daria's parents are not allowed to work in the US and the expensive cost of life in Boston is draining their financial resources. Therefore, MAASBESA is starting a fundraising campaign to help the children and their families. We are conscious, however, that we cannot do this alone. WE NEED YOUR HELP and here is how you can help:
  1. Visit icanhelp.maasbesa.org to learn more about their stories and to make a donation online
  2. Spread the word by sharing this fundraising campaign everywhere you can: familiy, friends, work, facebook, email, twitter, linkedin, etc
  3. Join us on a Picnic Fundraising Event on April 29th, 2012 at Blue Hills Park in Milton: hiking, picnic, games, music and food for an unforgettable experience and a noble cause. Suggested donation is $10 per person or $30 per family. All proceeds will be distributed to Daria and Gentian's families. For more information, please visit icanhelp.maasbesa.org
In times of need, communities stick together. We Albanians are often regarded as generous and close to each other when death strikes. Let's be even more generous and close as a community in sustaining LIFE! For in times of peace kids should outlive their parents, never the other way around!!!!

Wishing you a good health,
