FAIR LAWN, N.J. – A nurse and mother from Fair Lawn has been diagnosed with lung cancer, and her children’s friends are rallying the community for support.
Delia Basilio was diagnosed in December, according to a GoFundMe page created by Shane Autumn.
“This diagnosis was shocking, since Ms. Basilio has never touched a cigarette in her life. In fact, Ms. Basilio has dedicated her entire life working as a nurse at Englewood Hospital serving others,” she wrote.
Basilio is married and has two daughter and two sons, according to the page.
“Join us as we raise money for this amazing family to pay medical bills and support Ms. Basilio on her fight against cancer,” the page states.
More than $2,000 had been raised by Monday afternoon.
