She is admitted at Mt. Carmel Hospital in ICU. She underwent operation this morning and still hoping for better improvement. I know this is all sudden and shocking to find out but OUR JOYCE CULLA will need our help now, may it be financial or a prayer. Both will do. Our support will go a long way to extend our love to her.”
