Braids By Brislin: A Fundraiser

$3,246 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 96 people in 48 months
Over the summer I had to have emergency surgery to have a grapefruit sized tumor in one of my ovaries removed, a sudden and shocking discovery during a routine exam. It was rapidly growing and compromising my organ function, and having been cut off of my insurance just mere days prior by my ex-boyfriend, I had no choice but to hand over my credit card to the hospital to perform the surgery. Which leads me to where I am today: buried in $15,000 of debt. I was incredibly fortunate to bounce back health-wise and I'm doing great now, but it's impossible to get ahead and a daily stress on my life.

My friends and I put our heads together to figure out a fun way to have a fundraiser to help pay my medical bills. I've been braiding hair ever since I was a little girl, when my mom taught me how on my American Girl dolls. I've never stopped! Braids By Brislin is a braid fundraiser and a fun night of hair braiding and friends - to help me shave off some debt and to make some ladies feel pretty. Whitney of Myrtle has been lovely enough to host the event at her store, so I hope you can join us for a wonderful time. We'll be scheduling braids and accepting walk-ins, so email me to schedule a time or if you have any questions.



Thank you so much for your support. I know some of you won't be able to make it since you don't live in Los Angeles, but I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this and potentially donate. It means the world to me!
