MIDLAND PARK, N.J. — Five years after beating stage 3 breast cancer, a Midland Park mom is fighting stage 4 lung, bone and spine cancer.
More than $8,300 had been raised as of Wednesday afternoon for Mariana ONeal, who works with special needs children in the Garfield school system, on a GoFundMe page launched by her son, Robert.
"I couldn't believe that my biggest role model was cursed with this again," Robert said.
"I didn't take this news lightly as it haunted me for many sleepless nights again. One night I decided to stop sulking and do something to help my family with the expenses of her new treatment."
