55-year old Sally LaPradd of Redford, Michigan has lived in her house for 30 years. For three decades, she worked to provide herself and her family a safe and loving place to call home. Beloved by friends and family, LaPradd is warm, kind and giving person, who—like all of us at one time or another—has fallen upon hard times.
A survivor of severe abuse (the details of which are personal), LaPradd is no stranger to overcoming adversity. But, in 2005, the truly unthinkable happened — LaPradd, despite desperate and life-risking attempts to save her, witnessed her 16-year old daughter perish in a fire. This trauma is a horror no parent should ever experience and as a result, she struggles with PTSD.
But, that is not where it ends. ￼
Last year, LaPradd was diagnosed with breast cancer. She recently completed breast cancer surgery and treatment, but due to the removal of several cancerous lymph nodes, she is currently dealing with painful lymphedema in her right arm and hand. As a result, she can only work part-time right now. ￼
With help from friends, a sister and her part-time job—LaPradd was able to cover her basic bills during last year’s cancer battle. But, due to the lost hours, she got behind on her Wayne County property taxes and is now in danger of foreclosure.
The county will foreclose on her home unless she can pay them the balance of $1875.00 by December 31, 2018.
The goal is very simple and very achievable: Raise $1900 before the end of 2018 (or sooner) so Sally can save her home and finally have the freedom to nurse herself back to health. They say that the universe never gives us more than we can handle—but when the circumstances pile up, there comes a time to ask for help. Enter this GoFundMe page...put together by friends and family of LaPradd.
LaPradd explains, “This has been my home for 30 years…the only home my daughter knew. Sometimes I feel like I lost everything I love the day I lost my daughter, but I am truly trying to heal a worried mind, a broken heart and a body damaged by cancer.” “Losing my home will not only make me homeless, it will devastate me to lose the only home my beloved daughter knew, and the home I've fought so hard to keep.”
No donation is too small and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Every day, hug those you love and tell them you love them. ❤ ￼
