Stacey and Mark Aresta of Naugatuck are the perfect fairytale story. They met at just 18 years old, fell in love, and have been married for the last 20 years! They have three beautiful children, Trevor, 15, Teresa, 13, and Elizabeth, 8 and dreamed of one day being foster parents. Sadly, last year their fairytale turned into a nightmare when Stacey was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer. Stacey has 4 tumors on her breasts, 6 tumors in her liver, and is undergoing more tests to determine if the spots on her lungs are scar tissue or additional tumors. Stacey is undergoing treatment at the Leever Center in Waterbury, and will undergo treatment the rest of her life as the cancer is inoperable. Her wish was to go with her husband and children to the Grand Canyon! All her life Stacey has wanted to camp there, but due to her condition, has been advised not to by doctors. As a perfect alternative, Stacey wished to take a tour of the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. Treasured Time made this wish come true in Oct 2014.
