Valerie's Tumor Surgery
Organized by: Sama Wareh
Valerie is a dear friend of mine. A hard working and sincerely compassionate friend of mine. She is the lady who will take in the homeless child because they could have a chance at a better day in their life. Now she is the one who is battling an uphill battle of healthcare bills. After signing up for her health care plan at work and getting the highest deductible plan, of course unsuspecting of any serious health conditions, she discovered she had a huge tumor and now has to get this tumor removed. She will find out during this expensive surgery if it is cancerous or not. Her deposit for the surgery alone is going to cost $2,800. All of her co-pays cost an arm and a leg every time she goes to the doctor, hopping from referral to referral.
Don't get me wrong, its not that Valerie does not have a job. She is a in fact a hard passionate worker. Valerie is an amazing naturalist, inspiring children every single day to love and care about the environment. Those of you who work in non-profit know that you do this because you make a difference and you make the sacrifice of your cost of living.
I have known Valerie now for almost 9 years. She is an inspiration to me and so many others. I am hoping that we can show her the love that she shows everybody else every single day. If everybody just pitches in $20 this fundraiser could be over in less than a week, when she needs to start her surgery. You may not know this woman, but trust me, she would help you if she could even not knowing who you are.
