Samantha Olsen

I have created this page in hopes to raise money for my daughter, Samantha Olsen. She is a proud, single mother of four kids, three of which are still living at home with her. Sam has always worked very hard to provide for her family and is always willing to help anyone in need. Her home has an open door to all and is consistently filled with neighborhood kids! For those who know Sam, they know that she is a proud person and has always worked very hard to provide for her family.   In August of 2016, Sam lost her job due to a complicated work comp injury claim.  She is still fighting for work comp benefits, but it's a lengthy process.  Sam is not receiving any weekly benefits and she is unable to work at this time. She recently had back surgery and is still in the recovery phase. Her physical restrictions have placed her in an economic hardship. Sam has never been one to ask anyone for money... she's always managed. Unfortunately, this has become more than she alone is able to bare.  It's a day to day struggle to maintain financially.  It's been 10 months since Sam lost her job. She has managed to get by with  working odd jobs up until she had her back surgery in April 2017.  She's been fortunate to have a couple friends to also help her out when things get tough. She used her tax refund for paying up as many bills as she could... but those bills are coming due again soon.  Everyone has experienced some type of financial hardship in their life. She has the will and is determined to recover and be able to support her family again!  She would love to utilize this recovery time to obtain a real estate licence. Some of the money raised would go towards paying for her to accomplish this and become financially independent again. Asking for help is not in her nature... unfortunately, Sam is out of options.  Your generosity will be greatly appreciated and when she's back on her feet... she promises to pay it forward.
