Our loving Mother, Judy DiFino, faced a life of incredible challenges. After contracting polio at the age of 4, she battled through various health challenges before completely losing her hearing in her early 30’s. During this time, she attended college, but spent every extra minute working in the family business and raising 4 beautiful children on her own.  She went on to meet and marry her life partner, Vic in the mid-80’s. We didn’t realize how hard it was to work and raise children while battling health challenges. Now we understand.

Through all of this, our Mother simply worked for and loved us. Taking care of us became more challenging after a series of painful kidney stones, ultimately resulting in kidney failure. She would be on dialysis the rest of her life. Our Mother’s love for family never wavered.

In the last year of her life, bouts of pneumonia, painful shoulder and hip deterioration caused her to be bed ridden 100% of the time. Yet, through all of this, our Mother found a way to make every holiday special, staying involved in our lives until her passing on November 18, 2019. Ironically, the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays were among her favorite – her spirit is now able to enjoy and be enjoyed by everyone pain and suffering free.

Unfortunately, through all of this, our family and specifically Vic, have endured enormous medical bills. While she had quality medical insurance, the overflow expense has caused significant financial distress. We are humbly asking for your assistance if possible. Thank you and may God Bless you!
