It started with her cat dying, then her mother passed away, and when she went to visit a friend at the hospital she ended up being in the hospital for herself. She went to lunch to check on a friend's mother at the hospital and ended up calling in at work to say "by the way, I AM at the hospital."
Pam is a generous, caring, charitable, and workaholic person. To those who know her, she is known to be stubborn and often refuses help from people because she does not want to be a burden to anyone. Yet despite working 5 to 7 days of 12 - 18 hours work day, she finds time to volunteer to multiple groups or charities. We tried sending her home but she always say that she still have work to do. I do not know where she finds the energy. When she was at the hospital, she kept asking her doctor/nurse if she can go back to work.
After multiple expensive test, that she still has a bill for, her doctor called her in and told her that she has a tumor in her kidney that needs to be removed before it spreads and becomes too dangerous .
Maybe it is luck after all that brought her to that hospital because they would have diagnosed it too late if not for that. Despite the severity of her diagnosis, her main concern was how much it is going to cost her.
To all her friends, co-workers, and loved ones:
Please help me ease her worry by making sure she has enough money to cover her medical expenses and pray for a successful surgery this month.
