Medical Residency Applications

There is a calling on my life to be a physician, and I am one step closer to my goal.  On September 15, 2014 I will be applying for a medical residency position, but I NEED your help. 

I currently perform clinical research at Cleveland Clinic Florida, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be there.  That being said, it is an unpaid position :-(  While the tutoring I do in addition to my research has sustained some of my living expenses, I was unable to amass the funds necessary to apply to residency programs.  I found myself in need of assistance.  I was blessed enough to have a donor offer to donate the necessary money. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances and forces beyond their control, they are no longer able to assist me.  This is a recent occurrence and I was NOT prepared for such a blow, especially so close to my application submission date. Thus, I once again find myself in need of assistance.

I admit this is a HUMBLING experience, but I am putting my faith into action. Matt. 7:7,8 says, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."  I realize the application to my situation is a little out of context, but the sentiment reigns true; If I do NOT ask, how can I expect to receive?  Therefore, it is with a HUMBLE and APPRECIATIVE heart I request your assistance with raising a MINIMUM of $1200 to help me apply for medical residency positions on Sept. 15.

I am also soliciting your prayers for a residency position assignment on Match Day in March 2015.

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to Facebook message (Leticia Chrishawn) or contact me via the Go fund me messaging system. If you would prefer to donate funds via Paypal, contact me so I can give you the necessary information.

Thank you for you consideration regarding this matter, thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide, and thank you for passing this on.
