On November 2nd, I got word that a coworker/ friend, Sharon, had lost her daughter in a terrible car accident the night before and that her young grandson, who was also in the car, may not make it. This horrible, tragic loss comes only weeks after Sharon learned that her mother was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Ever since the diagnosis, Sharon has been her mother's tireless caretaker.

Sharon herself works 70-80  hours a week  caring for people with developmental disabilities to support her 4 children and 2 young grandchildren. Sharon is the type of person who will give you the shirt off of her back, give you a roof over your head,  give you an ear to vent to  and a shoulder to cry on and I think, in light of these recent tragedies that have struck  her family, it is time to give back to this selfless woman.

Sharon will need help paying for her daughters funeral, prescriptions for her ill mother & gas money to provide transportation to the numerous doctor appointments. Sharon's grandson had numerous surgeries and was doing well but has faced numerous complications like a collapsed lung, ligament damage in his neck, swelling on his brain, brain damage and had to undergo a 7 hour surgery to reconstruct is severely damaged face. I'm sure there will be extensive medical costs incurred. Sharon has now been granted sole custody of Angel and will be left to cover the bills.

Sharon has had to miss work to care for her mother. Her paid days off are dwindling and she will surely need time off to handle this devastating event. Bereavement leave is only a few days long and afterward, Sharon would be losing income at a time when working & paying the bills should be the last thing on her mind.

Please, offer a helping hand, a little relief, a little cushion, to Sharon and her family during this heartbreaking time.
Thank you.
