Not only will you save her life, but you'll be helping your own life

I met a Jewish woman who lives here in Los Angeles who came into Pico Shul looking for help. Her hair was growing back as she just finished another round of chemotherapy. Linda (not her real name) poured out her heart to me.

For the last 13 years she's been caring for her elderly mother. This was her livelihood and sustenance. Her 95 year old father is in an assisted living facility. Suddenly, two months ago, her mother passed away. Not only was her mother the center of her life, but caring for the mother was one of the ways she supported herself. Now with her mother gone, and her cancer returning, she's been living in a car and sometimes at a Korean spa.

She urgently needs a major operation, and her insurance will cover the operation – If she can keep paying the premiums. Because she is sick, it’s so hard to find a job. She is trying to get SSI to help pay some bills. But when she walked into the synagogue she had $5 inner wallet.

I’ve seen the letters from the doctors and I spoke with others that know her. This is one of the those cases where if we don’t act, we will be collecting for a funeral, and not an operation. She’s only 54. She has a so much more to give and do in this world. But Linda needs us now to help her out of this dangerous and scary predicament.

It's our goal to raise $20,000 in order to pay for six months of her insurance premiums, food and to rent a local room so that she can recover from the operation.

So please my dearest friends open your heart. Open your heart for your Friends and loved ones. And please open your heart for Linda so that we can help her get her life-saving operation.

Not only will be you have been to save a life, but you'll be helping your own life knowing that you were part of such an important cause such a good cause.
