My name is Ashley and I am creating this GoFundMe on behalf of a very close friend of mine, Marie Gilberte Thermidor, a.k.a. “Gigi”. I met Gigi in nursing school back in 2014. She is an amazing woman who I have witnessed exhibit only kindness and grace to those around her. Gigi has the biggest heart ever and has always been willing to lend a helping hand to others in need. They say that actions speak louder than words: well Gigi’s actions are clear evidence of her selflessness. She started a project on her own initiative that provides children in Haiti with back to school supplies that she helped gather and ship to Haiti. Further, she would even travel there to make sure that the children got the supplies and were ready for school. For those who know me, I am raising my little sister Grace, but Gigi is the one who has been like an older sister to us both. She would often braid Grace’s hair so that I would not have to worry about it. She is a true friend who was always by my side throughout nursing school and I am blessed to have her in my
After graduating nursing school in 2016, she continued to help others by working at Holy Cross. Sadly, in February of 2017 she was diagnosed with stomach cancer and has been fighting it ever since. She has gone through many rounds of vigorous chemotherapy treatments. Anyone who knows Gigi, knows of her vibrant spirit. She loves to smile, has a great sense of humor, and a lot of energy. Cancer has taken a toll on her, but she is a fighter. She continued to work even after her diagnosis, however things have taken a turn for the worse as the cancer cells have spread. She can no longer work and keep up with her bills and medical expenses. It is for this reason that I created this Go Fund Me page. From the bottom of my heart, I am asking you to help my dear friend. She would appreciate anything and everything. Thank you so much in advance!
I love you all!
