DENVER -- KDVR -- You notice two things when you first meet Beverly Pino. Her faith and her love for family.
"For as sick as I am I have some strength left and my friends and my kids keep me going," Pino said.
She leans on both as she faces something neither can protect her from, advanced stage 4 cancer.
Her family just wants her to be comfortable but medications and treatment are expensive.
So when a cousin asked to throw Pino a fundraiser, she agreed. The family said the event raised more than $10,000 and Pino's daughter said the woman assured the family they would see the money.
