Bowen Family

I am reaching out to everyone in hopes that we can help a family in desperate need of money.  The Bowen family lives in Stafford, VA.  Michele Bowen, single Mother of four, has battled leukemia as a child and survived a reoccurrence of leukemia in her thirties.  Three years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy.  Michele was a volunteer EMT at two separate firehouses in Stafford, VA for several years and had to retire due to her breast cancer diagnosis in 2014.  Within the last two years she was the sole caregiver to her Mother who passed away with COPD.  She lost her job a year ago, as an employee of a government contractor, and has recently been diagnosed with a reoccurrence of breast cancer which has presented now as bone cancer.  This family is on their own.  Michele has no family in Virginia and only a few members in Massachusetts.  They are in jeopardy of losing their home.  Two of her children and her five year old grandson reside with her. 

I am appealing to anyone and everyone, her EMT brothers and sisters around the US, friends, family and strangers to please help this family.  Your donations will help save their home, and give them a secure place to live during Michele's treatment of bone cancer.  They have endured so much pain and turmoil and continue to move forward.  Please help me help them.  Thank you so much.
