Vida's Medical Fund

"Vida!" her name means life; and now she is fighting for hers. After being diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that forms in the white blood cells; she has been receiving treatment at the Moffit Institute in Tampa, Florida for the past several months. She currently has no health coverage and the cancer fighting medication she needs is very costly.

A small portion of her expenses were covered by her children and church family; but even this wasn't enough to purchase the pricey medicine required to help strengthen her bones that have become extremely brittle as a result of her illness.

Vida has always lived a life in service to others. Prior to her illness, she held several positions in her church and is known as a modern day Mother Teresa in her community; always feeding the less fortunate, providing shelter for those in need; and touching the lives of others when and where she can.

Now it's our turn to help the woman who has helped so many others.  She desperately needs this bone medicine as one accidental fall could cause severe breaks and irreparable damage to her bones.  Those who know Vida can testify that she is worthy of any assistance that we can provide her. Please open your heart and donate to help the woman who opened hers to anyone she came in contact with.

Thanks!
