I hope this letter finds all of you in good health and spirits. I am writing to you today to share my journey and ask for your support during a challenging yet transformative time in my life.

Over the past few years, I have faced considerable obstacles that have tested my resilience and determination. A spinal injury left me without a reliable job for 5 years, pushing me to an alternative path to sustain myself and my family. In this time, I poured my heart into creating my passion in macrame art, showcasing my work on Despite my passion and hard work, I have yet to achieve the success I envisioned. 

My dedication led me to open a store at Painted Tree in Snellville, GA, seeking a brick and mortar presence to further my art. Unfortunately, the venture didn’t unfold as anticipated. Instead, it became a financial burden, ultimately resulting in the closure of my store. These setbacks were disheartening, but they didn’t break my spirit.

Amid these challenges, I finally underwent spine surgery, providing me with a newfound sense of relief and hope. However, the journey to recovery brings a different set of challenges, notably the burden of mounting medical bills for both myself and my fiancé, who also underwent hernia surgery two weeks prior to my surgery. Additionally, my beloved son, who is autistic, requires specialized support outside of school, which adds to the financial strain.

   I draw strength from the memories of a remarkable event - my son’d 5th birthday. To create a joyful and memorable surprise, I built a pool for him from scratch on my own. For 3 precious days, we experienced pure happiness with its waters. Tragically, the day of his birthday just an hour before guests arrived for his party, the pool collapsed causing flooding in my neighbors yard and home. In that moment, I realized that my resourcefulness could only carry us so far. It’s in this context that I reach out for a helping hand.

While I’m blessed to receive some support from my late son’s biological father, who left us a gift of ongoing financial aid due to his unfortunate passing 4 1/2 years ago, it’s not enough to cover our mounting expenses. With humility and hope, I ask for your assistance. Your contribution, no matter the size, will alleviate the financial strain and enable me to rebuild my business. More importantly, it will better help me provide for my son’s needs and even fulfill some of his dreams.

I understand that many around me face their own struggles, but sometimes, coming together can make a tremendous difference. Your generosity will not only impact my life but also contribute to the well-being of my family and the nurturing of my son’s potential. To learn more about my journey, contribute, or offer support please reach out to me at [email protected].

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story and for considering my request. With your support, I believe in the power of turning challenges into opportunities and dreams into reality.

With heartfelt gratitude,
