Paola Aguilar

Please consider helping our dear friend and colleague Paola, as she has recently been diagnosed with kidney cancer. Paola is a third-year law student at the University of Idaho in Boise, Idaho. Paola is an extremely involved and dedicated student and always goes above and beyond. Anyone who has had the pleasure of being around her knows that she is always the first to graciously jump to help, so let's do the same for her. She has a long and extremely expensive road ahead of her, let's try and ease some of the financial burdens for her.

Today, Paola shared, "Over the last month my life has been turned upside down as I have been diagnosed with metastatic kidney cancer that spread from my kidney to my right lung.
I went from living alone in my one bedroom apartment and exercising 3-4 times a week; to living with my parents and maybe being able to walk at the store on a good day.
I’m facing the scariest and most stressful moments of my life but I have been blessed with the best friends and family to get me through this."
