Help Vicki Borken & daughter, Breezy

Raised by 110 people in 55 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.

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
