I've never made a charity thread before (but here goes!)

Last edited Mon Nov 24, 2014, 09:52 PM - Edit history (2)

I (sorta distantly) know the person who's been forced to put herself and her problems out in the open by asking for help. She's employed (and damn talented!) but needs the money to move her mother from Utah to SoCal and for medical treatment--after a double whammy of malpractice and now cancer.

My own acquaintances have given what they can, but I know that DU has, for well over a decade, shown itself to be one massive "giving circle." Everyone's getting ready to reunite with their own families for Thanksgiving (and the whole barrage of holidays shortly after), so it's appropriate that I post this this week. There's not any deadline, but it seems a good time for something like this.

It's on GoFundMe: http://www.gofundme.com/47xmcw

Thanks and all the best,
Dan B

1. "the doctor fled and was never found"

How horrible.

I'm glad her cancer is curable and that she has such a wonderful daughter.
