Help Shorena As She Battles Brain Cancer

Dear Friends,

I am reaching out to you with a heavy heart to share the story of my dear friend Shorena Duersch, who has been diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM), a rare and aggressive brain tumor. We are all devastated by this news, but it's especially hard on her family: her mother, her husband, her 13-year-old daughter, and her 7-year old son.

Shorena is a vibrant and kind person who has touched the lives of so many. She is bright, brave, loyal and loving. She has a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh. As a professional Medical Assistant and a devoted mom, Shorena has dedicated her life to helping others. Unfortunately, this devastating diagnosis has made it impossible for her to work and has left her with mounting medical bills and expenses.

This is where we come in. These are proud, working people and they are paying their bills, but any help that we can give them means one less worry. Shorena has already gone through a number of surgeries and treatments, and even with insurance, the expenses are overwhelming. With your generosity, we can help Shorena and her family during this exceptionally difficult time. Please donate to her GoFundMe campaign to help cover medical treatments and living expenses while she bravely battles this disease.

Your donation, no matter how small, will make a huge difference in Shorena's life. It will help ease the financial burden on her family, allow her to focus on her health and recovery, and give her the opportunity to spend precious time with her loved ones.

Please donate today, and then share this campaign on social media, with your family and friends, and help us spread the word.

Thank you for your support, kindness and generosity. Together we can make a real impact on Shorena's quality of life.
