Treasured Time seeks support for Naugatuck family

The Aresta family

Stacey and Mark Aresta of Naugatuck are the perfect fairy tale story.
They met at just 18 years old, fell in love, and have been married for the last 20 years.

 They have three beautiful children, Trevor, 15, Teresa, 13, and Elizabeth, 8 and dreamed of one day being foster parents.

Sadly, last year their fairy tale turned into a nightmare when Stacey was diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer.  She has four tumors on her breasts, six tumors in her liver, and is undergoing more tests to determine if the spots on her lungs are scar tissue or additional tumors.
Stacey is undergoing treatment at the Leever Center in Waterbury, and will undergo treatment the rest of her life as the cancer is inoperable.

Treasured Time, Inc. is looking to grant Stacey’s wish this October.  Her dream is to go with her husband and children to the Grand Canyon.
All her life Stacey has wanted to camp there, but due to her condition she has been advised not to by doctors. As a perfect alternative, she wishes to take a tour of the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. 

If you would like to help Stacey’s dream come true, visit treasuredtime.org or call Suzanne, 203-856-9772

This is a press release from Treasured Time, Inc., a Connecticut-based 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to grant the wishes of parents with life threatening illnesses who want to create a lasting memory with their children.
