Mom Adopts All 4 Of Her Best Friend’s Daughters After She Died Of Brain Cancer

When Elizabeth Diamond was diagnosed with stage-four brain cancer in August 2014, she was worried about what might happen if she died.

Her best friend Laura Ruffino, whom she had known since 5th grade, promised to adopt the girls if anything were to happen – and when Diamond, a single mother, passed away in April 2015, Ruffino fulfilled her promise.

Now, Ruffino’s family of 4 (along with her husband and two daughters) has doubled in size, and the local community in Orchard Park, NY is coming together to help them out.

A YouCaring campaign has already raised more than $80,000 to help the Ruffino-Diamond family read just.
