Raised by 123 people in 59 months


We are starting this fund on behalf of our friend, Vicki Borken and her daughter, Breezy. Please consider opening your heart to make a compassionate donation as soon as possible.

Vicki suffers from Lymphedema and is currently out of the hospital recovering from a major procedure to debulk her larger leg (75 lbs removed). Breezy currently is temporally placed with family members waiting to be reunited with her mother. When discharged Vicki and Breezy will be homeless. In March, Vicki's life partner and Breezy's father figure lost his struggles to heart disease.

Vicki is in need of help to support her daughter and herself. They need an apartment, all regular necessities and transportation to get to future doctor and treatment appointments. Compression garments are needed as well. Her government issued insurance doesn't cover them or the prevention of her condition. Vicki has a long road ahead of therapy and the necessary prevention steps to maintain success of the surgery. She aspires succeed with her healing and beginning a new future with Breezy. With the help we can get her through these hard times and up on her own to provide for herself and Breezy in the future.

I find myself having to update due to medical and financial needs. (Money previously raised was spent as needed) Our lease is up and the rent will be raised and we really need to move .Moving costs are very expensive and more than we have on limited income ,from the dangerous alley that we're living on there is been a shooting ending in death, we have been broken into and robbed and the neighbors have had a drug raid. (very scary)
I desperately need custom lymphedema compression stockings that run about $800 each (last about six months) to keep my legs from swelling back up after having 75 lbs removed from it and custom-made shoes due to the fact that my feet are so deformed, neither covered by medicaid.
I hate being needy but that's the situation I'm in right now and anything that you can do to help would be greatly appreciated thank you very much.
These stockings need to be replaced. AMD you can see my for so you can see my need for shoes.

Hi and Happy New Year ! Wishing all a good year ahead. Still trying to make ends meet after being robbed. I don't know if people realize but what you see in these photos is how it will be , no further surgeries unless I have my toes removed. So my situation is much the same but my right leg is acting up , too. Our finances haven't gotten any better .I have been fortunate having some help with car repairs. Rent went up, any $ would help. Thank you
Vicki ❤

Today I post with devastating news. Last night our apt was broken into and ransacked. They stole our TVs , savings, bill money, jewelry , PS3 , and more. Thankful that we and our kitties are OK though as they had got out. I feel violated and unsafe. I don't know how we will. Make ends meet , we had very little resources to start with. Anything will help. Thank You
