This is the official Go Fund Me account to help support Nina Pham and her family in their time of need. Nina is the nurse who is currently fighting Ebola in Dallas Presbyterian Hospital as a result of her selfless devotion to nursing care for Ebola patient Eric Duncan.
To those who know her she is a light for others, always shining, never faltering. She is genuine, selfless, and a true friend. She loves adventures, traveling, helping others, and a good challenge. She sees beauty in so many things, and believes in and supports others with a ferocity that is unforgettable.
Her life has been an inspiration to those around her. So many have been touched by her life, her genuineness, her indomitable spirit, and her love.
My name is Sarah Strittmatter. I have had the fortune of being one of Nina's best friends since 3rd grade. Nina is part of a very close, caring family who are invaluable members of the community. Her family has always been supportive, and now it's time for us to support them.
This fund will be used for many different expenses that Nina and her family will need covered. Everything Nina owns has been destroyed in effort to avoid any contamination. Also, her family is not working during this crisis, and needs support during this tough time. There are a myriad of expenses associated with a crisis like this - many of them not covered under any compensation plan. Student loans, car payments, rent, vet bills, family travel and hotel fees, meals, etc.
This effort is in conjunction with Brian Roberts, a Nolan graduate who is coordinating support efforts for Nina.
