Support Cynthia Alberto's fight against cancer

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Cynthia Alberto. Many of you may know me through Weaving Hand, my Weaving and Healing Arts Center that has been serving the community for the past 17 years. Many of you may know me as Cindy, a childhood friend, Cynthia the mother of 2, the artist, the dreamer, the maker. I am deeply saddened to now introduce this part of my journey.

I have recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer, and due to rapid changes in my health and abilities to function on a day-to-day basis, my family and I have sadly had to close Weaving Hand's doors, the main source of my daily income and survival.

Without the business open, and my inability to work, I have no choice but to humbly open my heart and arms to the community I have spent my life building with, for support. If it is within your means, please consider donating to my financial fund which will help keep me afloat during my rounds of treatments and hopeful journey towards recovery and healing. Anything helps, and any shares, prayers, and well wishes are appreciated with the greatest of gratitude.

My financial fund will ensure the cost of daily survival including but not limited to:
  • Rent
  • Transportation to cancer treatments
  • Medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • Holistic care not covered by insurance
  • Groceries

Covering these basic necessities will ensure my survival and multiply my chances of ease through the beginning of this tumultous and unknown journey, and through the transition of Weaving Hand's closing.

Thank you for your love, support, friendship, and trust throughout all these years. I hold on to hope that this is not the end of these memories and connections. I am humbled and thankful for everyone's support.
