Supporting Dafina Kuficha's Healing

 We all know Mama Dafina.  Maybe you know her through her wide network of sisterfriends who practice moon ceremonies and Divine feminine ceremonies.  Or maybe you know her as an activist, speaking loudly and documenting protests that matter.  Or, maybe you know her as a healer, one of the most effective acupuncturists in the Bay. Or, maybe you  know her as an artist, photographer… speaking volumes from behind the lens. Or maybe she officiated your wedding, or like many over the years, you've received spiritual counseling and readings from her. Or, maybe you love her aromatherapy products from her I Treasure ME business. Whatever your connection, you might not know that recently, Dafina suffered a health crisis that impaired her ability to walk unassisted due to pain and weakness mostly in her left leg and has been having TIAs all too regularly.  She’s so busy with  her gifts as an empath and healer, being wholly present for others when needed, that things broke down.  She looked up one day and found that she’d ignored some important signs that her body, mind, and spirit were on overwhelm. She’s got a beautiful network of Love, but she simply didn’t remember to let either  the “net” or the ‘work” support her. She's been facing a lot of deep concerns, going home often to help family illness, ministering to whomever needed, but not taking time to renew. Exhaustion has taken its toll and she’s now forced to stop and listen.  We’re reaching out on her behalf so that she can finally take time for the deep healing she needs. Through her artwork, acupuncture and activism, Dafina gives so much to so many.  Now let’s be the many who give her the support she needs at this challenging time. Let's hold her up! Dafina is self-employed and has been forced to close her practice during her healing sabbatical. Her living expenses will, of course, go on.  If she’d had the benefit of planning her crisis, she would be better financially prepared, but...  She’s still faced with rent, utilities, food, medical bills and treatments. She's also still in the midst of doctor's appointments and tests that haven't given a clue yet why her mobility was affected. As a stroke survivor, we want to make certain Dafina takes all the time she needs to heal. We, Dafina's Angels, have organized this campaign to help with those costs and help her afford the rest and the best natural,  therapeutic treatments possible. If anyone has any other heart offerings, including housekeeping/organizing, kind gestures of this nature are also greatly appreciated. Please give what you can.  We need to raise these funds within the next 3 months though they are needed now. Every dollar helps. Thank you!
