Personal and Medical Expenses


I have set-up this page for a dear friend and coworker of mine, Lisa Thorne. She was diagnosed with Heart Disease about 5 years ago and her condition is currently worsening. Under her doctors’ advice, she has had to stop working and currently visits her doctors approximately 3-4 times a week for continued / frequent observation.

Life for Lisa has become more stressful and her medical bills more expensive. As a result, it has also become increasingly difficult for her to take care of herself and her kids while trying to pay her exorbitant medical expenses, rent utilities and food. Lisa is a single mother with 4 children: her youngest is 11. As you can imagine, she is currently under more stress then she needs to be; which has a big impact on the condition of her heart; thus greatly affecting her ability to focus on getting better. So, in order to reduce my friend’s anxieties and to assist her in getting better by focusing on her health and kids; rather than money issues; I must appeal to all who know and love her and to the great public as well.

The doctor only has given her the option of surgeries. I humbly ask and would greatly appreciate if you would consider donating in any amount to this worthy cause of comforting and extending the good health and wellbeing of my dear friend.

Thank You,
