Westchester Businesses Help Raise Funds For Cancer-Stricken Hastings Mom

HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. -- A 34-year-old Westchester mom is fighting the fight of her life and to help, many area businesses are pitching in to help.

It was two years ago that Hastings mompreneur, Christina Torpie , was treated for breast cancer. Unfortunately, the disease has progressed, spreading to her liver, lungs, and lymph nodes.

The vivacious mom of a 4-year-old and a passionate photographer known throughout the county, is faced with skyrocketing financial challenges as she and her husband pursue an integrative treatment center in Chicago where she has started her medical care.

"While receiving treatments, Torpie needs to focus on getting healthy, not the financial burden that this disease will have on her and her family," said Noel D’Allacco, founder of Operation Prom and a longtime friend.

Out of pocket costs, deductibles, prescriptions, and transportation costs are adding up quickly for the Yonkers native. To help defray costs, several local businesses will be donating a portion of their sales to Torpie's medical care on Saturday, Dec. 17 and Sunday, Dec. 18.

Check out the following, keeping in mind the discounts apply only on the 17th and l8th.

For more information, contact D’Allacco at 914-803-2445 or visit the GoFundMe page that was setup for Torpie at https://www.gofundme.com/christinas-cancer-cure-fund .
