This is a story about a very special person, Monique Quintana. She is 35 years young and one of the most caring, super funny and  mad witty souls you will ever meet! Throughout the years, I have had the pleasure of being at the receiving end of Monique's culinary creations, and boy let me tell you, THIS WOMAN CAN BURN!! Monique's passion for cooking led her to culinary school where she not only graduated but did so as a single mother of 2 beautiful children, Leilah, now 9 & Daoud 6. Anyone that knows Monique knows how much she adores her children.

Throughout the past year, Monique has been in a lot of pain. Watching her suffer, not only at work, but home as well, has brought tears to my eyes. The pain was so intense to the point of having her job as a chef, at the university, had to be put on hold as she could no longer stand for long periods of time due to severe lower back pain. Although she stayed employed, she had to work in a different department. Monique,  thinking this would be a short term placement, watched as weeks turned into months.

After several tests and procedures, we finally had answers-one could never be prepared for the news we were about to receive ....and I was not able to fight back the emotion because I'll tell you this, NO ONE deserves this and this woman right here especially doesn't! She would give you the very shirt off her back if in need, and I've witnessed it! She would give you her last dollar to see you well, and I've witnessed this as well. When she didn't have anything else, she would cook for you, giving you all she had from her heart and pantry and pouring her passion into a plate so delicious that was made with such love that you could taste it in every bite!
That's why it is so very hard for me to even write these word and it's with an extremely heavy heart that I tell you that this loving, beautiful woman was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer just weeks ago.  Her doctors have started her on an aggressive treatment that includes chemotherapy right away as well as numerous other tests and several appointments. The news has devastated Monique and all those that know and love her. Her first thought was for her children, how would they cope, and all the "what-ifs" that enter your mind when you're told you have an aggressive form of cancer, that's not only in your breast but also your bones, lymph nodes, and brain. Her family, mom, Pilar & I her sister in Christ, Angeline, have been her rock and have been there every step of the way (and every single appointment) to support her through this difficult time. The doctors are doing everything they can to fight this super aggressive and rapid growing cancer-it's all happening so fast!

We all know that no one deserves this. It is a battle that many people are fighting in this world.  Today we are asking for any support you are willing to give. Monique is a devout Christian and most of all, a fighter and will continue to be, but the added support of her friends and family will motivate her to keep fighting with all her strength and never give up.
