Paula and her 12-year-old daughter, Fayth, had a hard time of it over the last year as their small family struggled with Paula’s breast cancer diagnosis. Treatment involved removing Paul’s breast. While the good news is that Paula survived the scare, she still has days when she doesn’t feel well because of the chemotherapy.

Those bad days aren’t getting her down, though. “I’m getting my health back!” she said with a big smile. She is even starting to look for a part-time job.

Even so, she’s been referred by her doctors for survivor counseling. The problem is that her car’s battery is on its last legs, and she was told by her mechanic that it won’t make it through the winter. Surviving on social security, Section 8 and food banks, Paula simply doesn’t have the money for the unexpected car repair.”I can’t afford to end up stranded,” she said, worried about the winter, getting to her treatment, and picking up her daughter.

Because of your donations, Friends In Deed was able to help Paula get a new battery and maintenance for her car. Without the worry and stress of unreliable transportation, Paul can continue to get better and the family can get back on their feet.

“I’m very grateful to Friends In Deed!”
