Paula-Future Cancer Survivor

Some of you have met our mom Paula Friesen, who is an amazing daughter, sister, mother, aunt and, the best grandma. This women, with an endless giving heart, has endured much heartache over the last 5 years. From suffering the loss of a child, our mom was crippled with grief. Our father who was also struggling, took much time off of work to help care for her. Both parents were unable to work for sometime, forcing them to live off their savings. Just as our parents were starting to feel on top again and our mother launching her own grief counselling business, we received word of her diagnosis.
Our mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer; it is invasive and aggressive. We are awaiting the news from the surgeon to find out when they will remove her breast, if the cancer has spread and, what the next steps will be. If you know our mother, you know that she has always given what she can to help others. And now, we are reaching out to all of our wonderful friends and family for help. As our mom will not be able to work for sometime, your financial gifts will help take away some of the burden that our parents will be facing on this journey of healing. Also, our mom is a woman of faith, and will be grateful for any and all of your prayers. Thank you for taking time to read this and thank you for all of your love and support.

Blessings, on behalf of all of Paula’s children.
