She energizes everyone she’s around. She’s the Zumba Queen, kick-boxing champ, Cello Angel and sweetest Stewartess you’ll ever meet. She’s also the Mama of three beautiful children, Maya, Hanna and Max. And she is expecting her first grandchild from Maya. She has been an inspiration to myself and many others whose lives she has so lovingly touched. Sadly 3 months ago she was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and only given months to live. She had to quit her dream job as a flight stewardess and money is now very tight. And, as you can imagine there will be many expenses ahead. Please donate to bless Lorraine with the finances to truly enjoy her remaining time with her family and friends. She posted the following on Facebook:

“Three months ago, on a regular, happy, beautiful day, my life changed forever. I had developed weird symptoms and ended up in the hospital, where I was told I had a mass in my brain and that I needed surgery. I opted for an "Awake Craniotomy" which was really cool!  Who gets to check THAT of their bucket list?? I woke to the growling buzz of a saw opening my skull.  The surgeon said, "Lorraine. Breathe." I took a deep breath, and it felt GREAT! He said, "Make a peace sign." Of course!  How did he know? He said, Make a fist." Yes!  I will fight!" 

In the end, I was told this:

YOU HAVE GLIOBLASTOMA BRAIN CANCER. ON THE GRAY SCALE, WHITE BEING THE FRIENDLIEST, MOST TREATABLE CANCER AND BLACK BEING THE MOST EVIL, TERRIBLE CANCER, YOUR'S IS BLACK.

They gave me a few months to live.

But wait!  Read on...

When I woke up after the craniotomy, my three kids surrounded me, and the first and only thing I said before conking out was, "I. AM. SUPERWOMAN."

Let the battle begin.

This has been a journey of unprecedented love, of laughter, tears, trust, learning, willpower, and so much more.

Enjoy every moment of your evening my friends, and know that I am sending my love through the ethers.” Lorraine

Thank you in advance for your generosity! May God bless you for blessing Lorraine and her family ❤️ Teresa
