One final obstacle

Over five years ago Sara set out on an endeavour to not only better her life, but the lives of her family too, by becoming a registered nurse. After a fifteen year absense from college life she plunged back into a learning atmosphere with the odds stacked against her. She had attended college right after high school and performed quite poorly, as she was simply not ready.  She had a cumulative GPA of 1.56 when she gave up.  As it happened, this same school would end up being the school she would attend for her nursing program. She fought the lingering grade issue by excelling in the face of adversity and brought that GPA from a 1.56 to a 3.43 by maintaining a 3.97 GPA throughout her program all while married with four kids, and while traveling quite a distance to attend school.  She will graduate at the top of her class.  Her days were long but she carried on.

She worked very hard to attain loans and grants to pay for the classes that were required to become a nurse. She exhausted all avenues including begging family to get the money to finish her schooling. After all avenues were tapped and all family members coffers had run dry she hit one last road block. The road block of time. There is this thing in the education world called "timing out". In other words she took too long to get through school and the loans and grants that she was relying on for finishing her school have all been ground to a halt. This could not have come at a worse time since all she had to pay for was one final semester before August 8th. Without paying for this semester, she cannot take her board exam to become a public health nurse and help the disadvantaged like she desperately wishes she could. 

The above is the reason that I (her husband) set up this GoFundMe site. I want her to realize her dream and be able to help the less fortunate like she has always wanted. Please help her attain her dream of simply caring for people.
