Cancer Sucks! Yolanda Needs Your Help!

Yolanda, received a Breast Cancer diagnosis in January. Just after receiving her diagnosis she was forced to leave her job. Yolanda is a 33-year-old mother of a beautiful little boy, as well as a wonderful wife, daughter and friend who has spent over ten years providing support to her community as a human interest professional. Unfortunately, because of this diagnosis, she is now the one needing support for this long road ahead of her.

Yolanda has applied for various kinds of assistance and has sought out resources for herself and for her family in hopes to acquire supplemental support through programs and foundation services. However, as many of you know, there are too many members of our community who are in need of this type of support, and resources are limited. Often times applicants are placed on waiting lists, and if support and financial assistance are found, it might not come until months after treatment begins. This makes it difficult to maintain and meet financial obligations during the interim.

My name is Susan and I have started this page as a way to ask you to join me in supporting Yolanda and her family in any way that speaks to you. If you want to reach out to Yolanda directly for questions or to lend support in a more personal way, you can contact us through this site and we'll put you in touch. Yolanda can also take donations through PayPal. We are all wishing for a speedy recovery.
