Help with Pamela Cooper who is on Life Support

Pam is a hard worker, and the main support for her family. She is on life support after running out of paid sick time, following her illness with Covid-19. Not only is Pam going to be unable to work, should she recover from this life threatening challenge, but she is also going to be inundated with medical bills.

Everything raised will be sent to her Mom, Shirley Ryan.

Please help Pam and her family, those of us that know her, know that she would do anything for the people she loves.  Now it is our turn to show her that same love.

Pam did not deserve this, and she has literally given her life to the City of Phoenix Emergency Center. Any funds raised will go to Pam's recovery, and to assisting her while she cannot work.


From the Phoenix New Times:

Pamela Cooper, 49, had worked a shift of more than 15 hours at Phoenix's 911 dispatch center. Cooper was a 20-year veteran of the dispatch center, but it was her first week back after six weeks recovering from COVID-19. She was still feeling unwell but was out of paid leave and supporting both her mother, a widow on social security, and her husband, whose unemployment has run out.
