Matilde Perez Covid-19 Recovery Fund

Matilde Perez is one of my best friends and is fighting Covid-19.  Matilde is currently on a ventilator at Kaiser Hospital in Clairemont.  

I've never asked for a donation before so this is incredibly awkward for me.  I first met Matilde 24 years ago.  She is such a wonderfully kind hearted woman who cares deeply about everyone she meets, has two beautiful daughters and is a grandmother.  Over the years she has become my best friend and work assistant.  Matilde is so loving and would give the shirt off her back for someone in need.  When my mother was in need of someone to take her to get her hair done, shop or just have someone to go to lunch with, Matilde was always there!  She never accepted money.  She did this out of the kindness of her heart and the love for my family.  When I broke my ankle and had surgery, couldn't drive, walk or take care of my basic needs for 3 months Matilde was there to take care of me.  This is my chance to pay it forward...

12 days ago Matilde was admitted to the hospital with Covid-19 symptoms and is now on a ventilator.  These funds will help to pay for her bills and anything else that comes along. 

I truly wish I could do more!!  The financial stress her husband and daughters are  going through at this time breaks my heart.

If at all possible please help my friend Matilde Perez!

Much love,

Dana Ritchie
