Help Erin pay her bills during cancer treatment

Hi friends, our sister Erin Waterman needs your help.
Erin has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be undergoing surgery in mid-October followed by radiation treatments.
Erin supports herself and her daughter, Carli, as a freelance transcriptionist.  As a contract employee, Erin's income is 100% dependent on her hours worked. She does not have benefits such as vacation or paid leave time to draw upon to make up for the wages she will lose as she heals from her surgery, goes to radiation appointments, and the many other follow-up appointments that will be necessary.
We are asking your help to cover 12 weeks of Erin's rent and other bills, so that she does not need to add the stress of worrying about staying in her house or affording food and utilities to her other stresses and can focus on her healing and recovery.

Whether you know Erin as a friend; a volunteer with the Whidbey Institute, the Organic Farm School, or Good Cheer; or as Carli 's mom, our family is deeply grateful for your donation.

Thank you for helping support our beloved sister through this challenging time, 
Sara Saltee (sister)
Shannon Waterman (sister)
Chris and Nichole Waterman (brother and sister-in-law)
