Words from Jeanette Greenwood | CEO of HMPA Inc. |Radio Personality
How did you meet Angela?
Jeanette G: I met Angela via Facebook years ago. I started following her as I watched her explain her story and how her illness has changed her life. When I first saw her, I thought she was a cancer patient due to the loss of hair, but I later found out that wasn't the case. Her smile and personality was simply magnetic. So I continued to follow her.
What led you to do this fundraiser?
When I finally met her face to face, I was in disbelief of her energy despite her illness. She smiled and she was not as stuck up as I thought she would be (LOL). You know the myth..."Pretty Girls are Stuck up!" LOL. But seriously, she was very down to earth and open about how she feel.
I started seeing her support various people, businesses and organizations, but noticed she didn't have a car. She talked about using LYFT to get to doctors appointments and other places.
Which event do you recall her attending, that meant the most to you?
Jeanette G: Destiny Squad Radio Show hosted a Peace 4 Pizza event to help gage better communication between police officers and African American Communities. Angela showed up and she didn't come to be in the crowd, she came bearing gifts. You see...she makes these BEAUTIFUL BASKETS and she had one to give away as a FREE raffle for a guest that came out to support the event
The baskets were raffled off (FREE) and it helped ease the tension in the meeting and showed the love she has for people. Later in the meeting, she expressed her concerns and how this meeting was something we needed as a community to address and resolve growing tension.
Angela Chatman is more than what you see, she is a woman of character that not only stand for what's right, but she encourages young women to be the best version of themselves. Below she is working with Jade Massentoff as she voluteered to help with a community project that granted artist Jade Massentoff a Music Video produced by Headline Mentors & Performing Arts.
Giving yourself and your time when you don't know what your future holds because of your health proves that Angela Chatman is an asset to the community and having her own vehicle will not only help her take care of her personal doctor appointments...it will help her continue to live, through the lives of those she serves.
"A Wish For Angela"
Help us get Angela back behind the wheel.
She never imagined she would own another vehicle...
but we believe with this fundraiser:
1. She will get a new car
2. Insurance paid for a year
3. Gas covered for three months
Help us help someone that continues to help the community.
