Veronica needs our Urgent Help

Dear Friends,

One of our own, Veronica Wright, is in a dire situation and needs our help.  She has been battling cancer for some time now and very recently went in for surgery.  The prognosis at the time was good – the surgery would help and eventually she would return to normal life with her family, and rejoin us here at work.

 In an unexpected turn of events, during and after her surgery, significant additional cancer and other complications were discovered.  Veronica’s prognosis has gotten much worse, in fact, she is on heavy medication and there is a significant chance that she won’t be with us much longer.  Compounding the heartbreak of this situation is that she has a young daughter  who has been taking time off of work to stay by her mother’s bedside, and a toddler son who needs the daily care and support that all of our children do.

 Veronica and her family need us now, for her Friends & Family to rally and help out in this difficult time.  We need to band together and do what we can to ease their suffering.  There are several ways we can help:

 We have set up a GoFundMe for cash donations.  The money goes directly to Cheyenne Wright, Veronica's daughter, to help with expenses, and keeps her family at Veronica’s bedside, consulting with her doctors and directing care.  Please consider donating.
 
No matter how well you know Veronica, or to what extent she has touched your life, please keep her and her family in your thoughts right now. In very similar situations in past, Veronica has always been the person to take lead and help those who needed our help. It is our turn now to stand beside Veronica
 
Veronica loves the communities she has lived and served in for a long time – her church, Comcast, and others.  As such, she has been happy to take visitors as her strength allows, although it is on an hour-to-hour basis.  If you are interested in visiting Veronica at Einstein Medical Center in North Philadelphia, please respond to this GoFundMe and we can help coordinate.
 
Several of us have been in touch with Veronica and her family on a continual basis, and we will continue to update you.

As a part of Veronica’s  Friend & family and Cheyenne Wright, thank you so much for helping Veronica in her time of need.
