My fiancé is a beautiful and wonderful person. She’s been fighting for two years now, she’s 47 years old with 5 beautiful children and 3 grandchildren with another one on the way. We live in Toledo, Oregon with my daughter and son-in-law now because my fiancé wanted to be closer to the grandchildren. We are die-hard wrestling fans, her favorite wrestler is John Cena. We live day by day, some days are better than others. Watching someone you’ve been with for 20 years in so much pain due to so much chemo and knowing there is nothing I can do to help her is so hard. Sometimes I even wake up out of my sleep to make sure she’s breathing. What keeps her going is our 5 children from ages 6 to 25 years of age and our grandchildren – plus our wrestling. Our 6 year old does pageants for her mom – she is tiny Miss Oregon, Bella Perez. I can just go on and on about our lives. In conclusion, she is the most beautiful, big-hearted person I’ve ever met in my life and I pray and pray for a miracle every day. 


 Sincerely, John Perez
