In high school she would take part-time jobs at senior living facilities.
As an adult she got her LPN and worked - again - at senior facilites and homes.
While working her last job (yup - at a senior living facility) she fractured two vertibrae - only to find out she had Multiple Myeloma (Bone marrow cancer to us lay-people). I would love to say thier name - because after 12 years of service she received no medical aid as it was a "pre-existing" condition!
One month before this diagonsis, she and her daughter spent most of their life savings to take over a senior assisted living facility in WA state.
UPDATE: After nine long months in Seattle, 80 lbs, three very invasive procedures - Selene is allowed to go home!!
Unfortunately the bank has put a foreclosure notice on here home of 25 years!
Despite many forms of assistance (though none very great), my dear friend could lose both her home and her new business - dedicated to helping seniors and their families.
This angel to the aged so needs some "pay-it-forward" compassion of her own to get her thru what could be multiple bone marrow transplants and the out-of pocket expenses that come with them. The hardest part for her is that due to the risk of infections - she cannot see her only grandchild for 6 month / transplant...
If there is an senior loved one in your life, who's last years were more comfortable due to a person like Selene - please pay it forward and help my friend.
I am hand crafting cancer awareness bracelets - one for every donatation we receive. I promise, no matter how small the dontation - I will get one to you.
Thank you in advance for your gift of love and life!
