Support for Amanda

Dear Friends,

 Amanda, as many of you know, is a gifted teacher. She was hoping to enter a PhD program in the fall, her lifelong dream. But a recurrence of cancer from five years ago has interrupted - either temporarily or permanently - this dream. We don't know what the future has in store for Amanda, but in the meantime, she is doing whatever she can to survive.

 To that end, her financial resources are limited and she would appreciate help from any of you who have it within your means to contribute. We’ve started a collection of funds to ease her financial burdens and facilitate as much peace and comfort as we can.  Please contribute to support Amanda’s day-to-day needs and wishes.

 Of course, outreach via phone, email, FB, and visits (when Amanda is feeling well enough) will be much appreciated too. Thank you for joining us in our efforts to support Amanda through this difficult time.
