Leni has been battling cancer for the past six years all by herself with no family to support her. She has been supporting herself and her 81-year old mother by working hard as a marketing representative for a home care agency in Pleasant Hill, California. Due to the recurrence of her cancer, she has been unable to work and has been on disability since July 16, 2018. This has resulted in her having to dip her into her savings to make ends meet. She has always been the type who does not want to burden anyone with her medical and financial needs. Unfortunately, an incident happened on October 4, 2018 around four in the afternoon that completely changed her situation.
Leni was a victim of a "smash and grab" crime that resulted in the loss of her purse which contained her credit cards and life savings that was intended for the repair of her home in the Philippines where she plans to spend her final days with her family when chemo will no longer be effective. According to the Concord Police Department, there is almost no chance of recovering what was stolen.
Leni's life savings was gone in an instant. With her fragile health condition, she can no longer work and start saving all over again. This is why she has resigned herself to finally, and humbly reach out to friends and all the people out there who are willing to help her in any way that they can.
