Save Patty's Boobies!
Organized by: Chelsea Heil
Patty & I worked together at a bar/hostel (Hostal Olas Altas) in Manzanillo, Mexico. The place is a magical mecca of positive vibration & love and she is our spicy little señorita in the kitchen---though she really is SO much more than that. She is a gregarious, hilarious, sassy, self-confident & positively endless little ball of energy and light. I had known about her taking a medication on which she couldn't drink for the last few months, but it wasn't until a few days ago that she went into depth with me on what was going on with her health. She has a golf-sized ball of tissue in her breast that has been ailing her for the past 6+ months. I can't even give her a proper hug without her wincing in pain. Every day she endures this pain yet has no health insurance, as she cannot afford it, and is working to keep her family fed with shelter over their heads. This favor for Patty means the world to me (and to everyone that knows her), as I would give her the world if I could in order to give back even a piece of what she's done for us and to thank her for the joy she brings us every day. Dollar by dollar and with all of your help, I know we can reach this goal of $5,000 USD in order to pay for her biopsy and surgery to remove the tissue. An endless and infinite thanks to you, my wonderful team of givers!
