Carmela had Stage 4 Cervical Cancer. Carmela, also known as La, passed on Mother’s Day 2013 and leaves behind a wonderful husband Chris and a beautiful 4-year-old son. We will always remember Carmela and her giving spirit. She was a personal friend of founder Jennifer Boyd and a close peer to Desiree, another one of our beneficiaries. She left her stamp on earth through her organization called WeHeartLa.org., an non-progit organization created by Carmela's best friend's Michelle and Desiree.
