Do not allow NC Judge to take Alaina Giordano's children just because she has cancer!

Do not allow NC Judge to take Alaina Giordano's children just because she has cancer!

      Palmerton, PA

My sister, a loving and devoted mother,  lost custody of her children last Monday due to the fact that she has cancer.  The North Carolina Judge stated that she was uncomfortable not knowing how long Alaina had to live.  So she must give up FULL CUSTODY to their father.  He moved to another state months ago and was never more than a weekend dad at best.  The children do not want to go live with him, uproot their lives and most of all leave their mother.  They are Sofia, age 11 and Bud, age 5.  Please help us to get this story out so my sister has a chance to overturn this ruling and keep her children.  Please hear our voice!  She should only be fighting cancer, not to have to keep her children. 

Thank You, Lauren Giordano-Kupillas

      I am a cancer survivor so I know the stress, pain and fear that goes with having cancer not to mention the uncertainty of will I live or die. I had so much to cope with when I had cancer and then this poor woman has all that worry and stress and as if thats not enough, she now has to worry about losing custody of her children just because she is sick. This world has no compassion or understanding for what people go through during times of illness. This is horrible, its a horrible injustice! This woman wasn't a bad mom who abused or neglected her kids so her having cancer shouldnt be of any concern to anyone except her and her family. Not the domestic relations branch with child custody! Give this woman her children and stop this miscarriage of injustice!! I bet they feel its ok for her to support them though right? How pathetic is this countries justice system when we steal children from mothers who would go without to make sure the children have. This woman has enough problems and worries, do not make her worry even more about losing her children. Cancer feeds off of stress, dont take her life like this. Let her be the mother she was being before the courts stepped in unwantedly...

      This brought tears to my eyes!!!! How unfair of that Judge. My mother has cancer... yes I am 26 but it would hurt me now as an adult I cannot even start to think what those children are thinking.. they should be able to stay with their mother as long as they can,,,,,,
