Supporting Valentina

This fundraiser is in support of Valentina Christoff, loving wife to Nicholas Christof, who passed away in December 2017.  Valentina nursed Nicholas through his three-year battle with cancer, allowing him to remain in their home until his last days.  After his passing, Valentina was left with limited resources, no health insurance, and has been forced out of the home they shared.  Valentina was a nurse in her native home of Ukraine, but due to limited English, has only been able to find low-paying work as a cleaner at a nursing home.  She has health problems of her own but will not be eligible for health insurance for at least several months.  She needs funds to help with her own medical expenses as well as to help make ends meet.  Please help if you can.

"Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for." - Proverbs 19:17
