Help Paula Battle a Rare Form of Cancer

Meet Paula and Hannah. Paula is an amazing single mom raising her incredible 15 year old daughter, Hannah. Paula was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer: Thymus Cancer. Most of us couldn't locate our thymus, much less know what function it serves. Well, the short answer is that it is located inside the rib cage and serves to make white blood cells for your body to help fight infection.

Paula's tumor has grown to be bigger than a grapefruit. This is causing pressure on her lungs, stomach and heart. As a result of these complications, she has been in pain, is nauseated, is exhausted and has struggled to work (as an awesome hairdresser at Neha's Threading) for the past few months. Now she has started chemotherapy and is too sick and weak to work at all. As a result, she is going to run out of money soon and won't be able to pay her bills (rent, health insurance, food, electric, phone, etc.). She has family and friends who are willing to help but they can only provide so much.


Paula needs about $2,000.00 per month: $1000/month for rent, $402/month for health insurance, $300/month for utilities(phone, gas, electric,water), and the rest toward healthy foods for her and Hannah to help get through chemotherapy & miscellaneous stuff.


Paula has overcome many obstacles to be independent, raise and provide for her daughter to be the wonderful young lady she is today. This is one obstacle she needs your help with. Please consider donating to help her pay her bills so that she doesn't lose her home, can concentrate on taking care of her daughter during this difficult time and concentrate on healing and being well. No amount is too small.


It takes a village. Please share this page with all of your friends and family, post it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.. Kindness is contagious. Thank you for your consideration. Enjoy your day.
