We have had the privilege of knowing Mary for over 8 years. She is giving, loyal, funny, sweet, an awesome stylist and an all around great person to work with and have as a friend. She never complains or asks anyone for anything. That is why we are doing it for her.
Mary just turned 50 last month and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on Wednesday December 21 of this year.
Mary had been feeling pain in her stomach for 3 months but thought nothing of it until it became so painfully unbearable that she was forced to go to the doctor. She is uninsured and was trying to avoid a big medical bill. She just had to buy a new heating system for her home and that wiped out all of her savings.
Mary's cancer is terminal but chemo tratments could give her more precious time. Like I said, she just turned 50 and thought, like most of us do, that she had plenty on time left. Mary was at the salon working the day after she was diagnosed because she doesn't have a choice. She needs money to pay her bills, food and whatever else she may need right now.
I am asking everyone to please help Mary in any way that they can. If you are able to give, please do. If not, please share. She really, truly needs it right now. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
We know that Mary will not be able to work much longer ( if at all) and everyone who has ever known her understands how hard that is for her.
I ask everyone who reads this to please consider giving to Mary in her hour of need. Any amount really will make a difference.
