Dorcas's Medical Fund

“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”
- Steve Maraboli

Dorcas is a beloved member of the community, a devoted single mother and a true inspiration to all who know her.  She has helped so many people during her short lifetime, and now she needs our help. 

Dorcas has been part of the Children's Circle Daycare  family for more than 20 years. Her dedication as a Registered Early Childcare Educator brings laughter and joy to everyone that has the priviledge of knowing her.  Her free spirit and enthusiasm drives her passionately in educating the children in her care. Greeting the children each morning with a warm smile and a hug - she is much beloved by all the children at the daycare and provides so much comfort to the parents who entrust their precious little ones to her care. 

Dorcas was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer two years ago. She underwent one round of chemotherapy, which weakened her body tremendously but she bounced back and immediately returned to her daycare family to share her joy with others. 

Now, after being in remission for 18 months, the cancer has returned aggressively. She is unable to work and has been hospitalized indefinately while she begins chemotherapy.

Dorcas is the devoted single mother of two beautiful daughters, who depend solely on her for their financial stability. Her oldest daughter is in her third year of university and her youngest is in her second year of high school.  Dorcas's greatest wish is to see her daughters continue their education - and to be there with them at the finish line. 

She continues to fight - still smiling everyday and putting her trust in her recovery - but she needs our support.  She needs financial help to pay for homecare services her expensive medications and to support her girls as they continue their education.  

Dorcas has given so much to so many, please help her as she fights this terrible disease - always with a smile, always with hope.
