on behalf of Sylvia Porter-Hall
 ROCHESTER, NY
Hello, my name is Jaqualine and I am writing to you regarding a dear friend. As we all know life can be unpredictable, often forcing us to recognize and acknowledge the many things that we might otherwise stumble over. Over the years, I developed a friendship with a woman by the name of Sylvia Porter-Hall.

Sylvia and I didn't speak as often as we once did but when we finally reconnected, she shared all the details with me as to what she had been through over the past year.

Sylvia was in the hospital for a total of 369 consecutive days. She has undergone 24+ abdominal surgeries, not to mention kidney failure and dialysis also during that time. As a result, she now lives with chronic kidney disease.

Sylvia is facing yet another battle. She recently shared with me one more hurdle she is determined to clear. Breast Cancer. She survived this once and with Gods help, she is confident that she will beat it again. 

Due to Sylvia's original hospital stay and her current health issues, she has suffered a GREAT financial strain.  She's trying to keep her head above water with all the expenses that has accrued due to her health.  In spite of all of her medical issues, it is extremely admirable that Sylvia is still trying to make ends meet on her own.  Sylvia will need to interrupt working at her part-time job, due to the surgery to remove the cancer and extensive recovery time post-surgery.

She can truly use the help of the community.  She would never in a million years look to people she has known for a long time, not to mention the general public for help. But as her friend, I am asking for assistance on her behalf. It's the best way I can help. I'm sure that Sylvia would greatly appreciate it.  
No donation is to small. 

Thank you in advance for your support.

Hello friends this is Jaqualine. I wanted to update you all on Sylvia's situation.

Sylvia had surgery this week to hopefully finish up the reconstruction dealing with her double mastectomy. Things went well and she's feeling better just extremely sore.

Sylvia and I would like to truly thank all for your prayers and your donations. As I explained to you in my last post, due to Sylvia’s health crisis she's facing numerous financial issues. Due to your support Sylvia has used funds from the campaign to help with back taxes and other expenses. She still has outstanding taxes and bills but THANKS TO YOU she has been able to put a Band-Aid on her bills but it's far from over.

Sylvia still needs your help. So, if you can please continue to support her with your donations she is forever grateful. I cannot thank you enough for pulling together to help her during this time of need.
Please keep her in your prayers.

Truly, thank you so much. Please donate today.

Hello friends this is Jaqualine. I am writing to you because Sylvia's situation has changed dramatically. If Sylvia's medical issues were not enough, due to Sylvia's original hospital stay for 369 days and her current health issues (double mastectomy), she is now facing a home FORCLOSURE. She's trying to keep her head above water with all the expenses that has accrued due to her health. Sylvia had to interrupt working at her part-time job, due to her recent surgery to remove the cancer and extensive recovery time post-surgery.

She truly needs our help now. Please make a donation today and help Sylvia save her home. The funds she has collected thus far has gone towards paying down taxes to try and save her home. I am not on Facebook or Twitter so please help me with sharing Sylvia's story to help her save her home and other financial expenses.

Hello everyone,

I wanted to provide you all with an update to Sylvia's medical matters. It's been a couple of weeks since her surgery. She's healing well physically and looks well. She has a positive attitude about all that is going on and that has happened in her life. To look at her one would never know what she's going through. She's playing the cards given to her very well as can be expected.

I set up this gofundme page on Sylvia's behalf to help raise funds to assist her financially due to her original hospital stay that kept her in the hospital for 369 days (Zollinger-Ellison's disease which normally affects white males) and recently breast cancer. To be away for so long, you can only imagine what financial crisis this has caused and before you can hit the ground running you are once again fighting for your life.

I would like to thank you for the support you have already displayed. I ask that you please continue to open your hearts to donate and share Sylvia's link with others.

Again, thank you and Sylvia thanks you.

Jaqualine
