Michael Tomelloso, a motor officer, and his wife, Laura, led an ideal existence with their two young boys, 14-year-old Mike Jr. and 10-year-old Matthew. But, in February of this year, their entire life was flipped upside down.
Both the husband and wife were diagnosed with stage 4 cancer just weeks apart. Since then, their lives have revolved on battling the diagnosis.
They are now undergoing cancer treatment, surgeries, and hospitalizations. Throughout this, they are unable to be there for their sons and care for them in the same manner that they used to.
During this difficult time for the family, the Tomellosos have depended on the generosity of friends, neighbors, and other church members for assistance. Individuals have stepped up to assist them in their efforts to improve.
Mike Jr. and Matthew’s parents are anxious to maintain some kind of normalcy and happiness in their life.
Matthew, the young man, has special needs. He works with horses as part of his treatment. Sadly, because his parents have been diagnosed and are receiving treatment, he is unable to continue with his horse therapy sessions.

The pair is now seeking assistance from the general public. It is difficult to go through this alone, and they require all the assistance they can receive, particularly with their increasing expenditures.
The Los Angeles Police Department has officially announced the establishment of the Blue-Ribbon Trust Fund with the Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union for the Tomelloso family.
The cash generated will be used to cover the couple’s medical bills, pay for food, cater to their unique dietary demands, and assist them in dealing with any other unexpected charges or liabilities that may arise in the near future.
To be honest, having one parent sick may be quite upsetting for a kid, but having both parents receive such a catastrophic diagnosis can be far worse.
