Supporting Dr. Turk

Hi there, my name is Frances, I live and work in a small community which I have always loved and supported in whatever means I can.  I am a naturopathic doctor as well as a disk jockey and love both of my vocations equally.  They have served me well and I have had a lot of blessings in meeting so many people in my lifetime so far.  

I find this a very difficult ask, as usually I am the one that is able to provide help and support to those who need it and find asking for help for myself personally one that puts me in a very vulnerable position.  I now empathize even more with those who put themselves out there to do this as it is a very difficult thing to do.

My reason for reaching out is that as of late, I have had some personal setbacks occur that have caused me severe financial hardship.  Most recently, it is becoming so debilitating I am fearful of losing my home.  I am asking, with hat in hand, for assistance to help me pay for a course I am forced to take in order to keep me doing what I love doing, which is helping the community in health care.

The hardship that has been incurred has been going on for a few years now and I have been able to manage staying just barely above water, but I am just so far under now that I am unable to breathe.  

My hope in those who support me in this avenue, is to continue to give back in the ways that I am able to.  Community support is what I love to do.  I will put in the time, I will put in the effort.  I will help in the capacities that I am able to do so physically and mentally and definitely, when I am in a financial capacity to do so, I will definitely pay forward the kindness and generosity bestowed upon me at this time.  I don't forget.

One thing that I will always have is my integrity, my honesty and my fight.  I will advocate for those who need it, despite the amount of hardship that comes towards me for standing in front of a bullet aimed at someone else.  My hope is one day to have the voices that need to be heard.....heard....and I will not stop trying .
