dear family.. arm-a karma update blog blog blog...
had my last appt with orthopedic doctor yesterday ..released from care FINALLY.. altho physical therapy daily at home still necessary to insure full mobility and range of motion .this has been an amazing roller coaster ride with many "Miracles and Madness' along the way humbling to say the least .. MANY TIMES I THOUGHT OF TAKING DOWN THE FUNDRAISER FRON ONLINE BECAUSE OF FEAR OF JUDGEMENT CRITISISM negative comments from the community and FEAR OF HOUNDING EVERYONE WITH MY "NEEDINESS".. I have recieved a lot of coaching from COMPASSIONATE loved ones (who understand the circumstances) to keep putting it up..! after 2 months of no work and medical bills piling up now I have had to continuously swallow my pride VERY EMBARESSING.. NOTE... this vehicle is a way for any of you in serious need to enlist the support of the community dont be ashamed to ask "Crowdfunding is a VIABLE TOOL NOW ONLINE TO GET HELP ..! ..IT TAKES a village..thank you from the bottom of my heart for assisting me thru a very challenging cycle..

"Life aint always beautiful...sometimes it’s just plain hard...Life can knock you down make you bleed... break your heart"...LIFE AINT ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL ....BUT IT’S A BEAUTIFUL RIDE..!
 
These words I quote from a dramatic monologue I perform as a bag lady in Grand Central Station in my upcoming musical show "French Fries and Velvet Gloves"
This show is a lifelong dream finally coming true....A hilarious poignant production with a message of hope for Humanity...We can move from tears to triumph as we navigate our way through life's trials and tragedies..  (As I have)... Many times...... ... and of course a sense of humor which is so important especially in this day and age of such challenging tumultuous times...
 
 This show has weathered over a year in collaboration...Many setbacks and gnashing of teeth with my gifted producer Ric Henry,
with several postponements due to unforeseen circumstances
The latest one being a badly fractured arm...I fell on concrete 4 weeks ago and fractured my humeres bone...(Pronounced 'humorous') Ironically...Needless to say it has been a very tearful painful awkward recovery including ongoing intensive physical therapy. I have not been able to use my right arm to function normally or perform necessary daily functions like writing... Using a computer... Dressing... Feeding myself...Showering and grooming...etc 
Or work as a MASSAGE THERAPIST...Which is how I make my living...Medical bills are piling up and living $ expenses... (I cannot begin work again for another 4 TO 6 WEEKS), to the tune of many thousands of dollars in addition my upcoming show will require an additional $1000 TO PRODUCE AS THE BUDGET IS NOW DEPLETED...With no income to support this endeavor...
 
  I am a very strong independent woman and pride myself in taking excellent care of myself and am very awkward and humbled to have to reach out and ask for help at this time from my extended family and community but I have no choice...I do not have abundant savings or family to lean on
Those of you who know me know that I have offered myself in "Sacred Service" to humanity for over 35 yrs in the HEALING and PERFORMING ARTS  ...MINISTERING TO THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE IN NEED  often volunteering my time and energy to others..Including seniors/elders as a caregiver for many years
 
  Please contribute what you can from the heart to my account link. All contributions are appreciated... My goal is $6000 TO COVER ALL.

I
n deepest gratitude for your generosity and compassion.

Sincerely,
 
Sacha Rana

Dear Sacha, You were a good friend to me when I was homeless (again) in Hawaii. I have not forgotten that. I have not forgotten you. Your ability to believe in the goodness of others is an inspiration to me. L&K, Benedict
