Please help our friend Jillian with expenses

Hi everyone, my name is Lisa Pankonin. I'm Jillian's boss and friend, and I'm asking for help to get Jillian back on her feet after a series of tragic events.

Jillian and her mother, Janice, caught Covid back in November and Janice was ultimately hospitalized. At this time, Jillian had been finishing school and working two jobs. A short time later, Jillian caught Covid again, ultimately causing her to miss more work and become behind on her bills. Upon seeing her second positive Covid test result she said "OMG, when can I come back to work!". In another horrible turn of events, her mother developed Covid pneumonia, and sadly lost her battle with this awful disease on April 1, having never left the hospital.

Jillian is an amazing young lady with a big heart and a great work ethic. She has suffered the most terrible loss of her mother, and best friend. If you can afford to donate, any amount will truly help this lovely girl and her 2 year old son get back on their feet after such a devastating loss.

Thank you,
