DiDi is a dedicated humanist. Her love for her friends, family, and her people resonate through everything she does. Whether she advocating for POC inclusion in arts and culture, convening a political meeting, or simply reaching out to people to provide emotional support and affirmation, DiDi's dedication to others is so clear. Her heart and love for others can be seen with every move she makes.
Born with Third-Degree Atrioventricular Block, DiDi has never let her condition slow her down or prevent her from giving all of herself to others. Although at the age of 16, she received a pacemaker to save her life, she has unfortunately had to have several surgeries within the past 12 years to support her quality of life. Why so many surgeries when the battery is only supposed to be replaced every 10 years? As many of you know, she has excelled in weightloss, then struggled with it. The doctor's have all recommended she undergo the gastric sleeve to improve the rewards instead of constantly being subjected to the risks, such as yet another pacemaker implant. DiDi is scheduled to undergo surgery on April 13, 2015 and will be out of work for 6-8 weeks.
Always authentic, generous, and honest; DiDi needs our help now to ensure her a long happy healthy life. We've helped her calculate her expenses for the two month period she will be out of work and we are asking that you please help us support her in this endeavor.
Donating whatever you can is the least anyone can do for someone who does so much for everyone else; but specifically supporting DiDi's recovery is supporting liberation for all people.
