A light in her darkness
Organized by: Sophie Mason
Hiya everyone! My name is Sophie and I am creating this fundraiser in hopes that it will help my 20 year old friend Sherry on her journey to become a scientist. In may last year, Sherry lost her mother to a long battle of cancer, leaving her to fend for herself and her twelve year old brother with the little money that was left for them. Her mother's battle with cancer began when Sherry was 9 years old and the situation ignited a drive in her to become a scientist and to work in cancer research. Today, she is studying biology at a well acclaimed university in Sweden. You may be wondering what the point of this fundraiser is when education in the country she lives in is free. Yes, education might be free but books and housing are not. She is struggling to make ends meet, to pay for her books and rent. As she studies full time in a quite complicated field, she does not have the time to get a job. Her father, you ask? Well, he never was very supportive. Yes, he cares for her brother because he is young, but refuses to fund anything for Sherry herself. This is why I have created this fundraiser, to help my friend, even in the slightest way possible. She has a deep passion for science and is dead-set on becoming a researcher. You donations need not be large, even a single dollar will make a difference, it will help her pay off one more bill. Know that your help is appreciated immensely. I want my friend to reach her goals, to experience happiness for God knows she needs some of it right now. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you so incredibly much for any donations.
