Terminally ill 27yr old mother of 3, needs your help.

  I wanted to share something that is going on with one of our on site employees.  We have a housekeeper at one of our properties and she is an outstanding employee.  This past year she was recognized by her co-workers and nominated as Housekeeper of the year at the AAGO Golden Key Awards and won.

Unfortunately she was not able to attend the award show because a few days prior her 27 year old daughter, a single mother of three small children was diagnosed with cancer.    

Her daughter who does not have health insurance a few months earlier was not feeling very well and went to a local clinic.  They ran test and told her everything was ok and sent her home.  Until one day when she became very sick and was rushed to the hospital only to be diagnosed with cancer in 60% of her body.  They immediately started chemo therapy. But this week she was given 4 to 6 months to live. 

There is no money, life insurance policy or any type of benefits that the family currently receives.  I can't begin to tell you how hard it is to hear this mother say she has no money to bury her daughter. They have no family in this country, and the only additional support our employee receives comes from her older son who is currently in the military and deployed over seas.

We are of course trying to find ways to help our employee prepare since she will have the custody of 3 babies that will be left without a mother. So we are asking anyone and everyone who can to please help this family. It would be a blessing to this family.  And it will give this mother/grandmother a little piece of mind. 

Thank you in advance.

(Please note we are keeping our employee's name anonymous, for her privacy. Thank you)
