Support for Jocelyn Richards

Many of you have known Jocelyn for years as a woman who has devoted her adult life to supporting others. Now, she faces a medical challenge that will take all of her strength and energy to fight. As she battles disease, our hope is that her friends, family and coworkers can help to support her. 

While our company is working generously to ensure her paychecks continue and her insurance covers what it can over the next 6 months, anyone who has experienced an ongoing illness knows that it draws upon additional resources over time. We're hoping to help offset costs for testing and treatments outside of covered care, meals to be delivered when she's too ill to cook for the family, travel and hotel stays for immediate family members who live elsewhere, car repairs for the Richards' aging vehicle to ensure Jocelyn can get to her many appointments at UCSF, summer camps for the girls to provide some relief for Mike (who will be working full time while caring for the girls), etc. 

Mike, Mimi and Josie are her biggest help during this time, but they also need care & support. The family welcomes any gift cards - DoorDash, Uber Eats, Caviar, Amazon, Target - that individuals may care to send, along with continuing messages of support and love. By contributing to this site, you provide Jocelyn and her family with funds to use as they need, and regardless of whether you're sending $10 or $1,000, every penny is appreciated. 

Please send a link to this site to any friend or family member who may be able to help, and think about setting up ongoing contributions on a monthly basis over the next 6 months. JOCELYN, WE WISH YOU THE BEST!!!!
