Ana is my best friend, a mother of two and 3 more she got as a gift in her new marriage.
She is currently fighting a severe disease and taking care of her son who's on a bed rest with no ending date near. They recently moved into a new apartment whose owners forgot to mention the huge debt for gas, which resulted with no heating and hot water.
Ana is not allowed to get more sick at this point, due to her cancer treatments (so another search and moving into a new apartment is not an option at this point).
If she knew what I was doing here, she would be pissed because, well, it's very hard to admit you're at the bottom and need help. But she does, and I, as much as I'd like, can't take care of her problems alone.
You may have a lot of questions, doubts or thoughts such as "this is not my problem, there are probably people around her that are productive and can help"...but in the end, none of that matters.
She is our friend, and we have the opportunity to help her by giving her what we all have (and often take for granted); a safe, clean and warm environment in which she could heal and come back stronger than before her problems started.
So please, join me in this good cause and hit the payment button. This year, instead of books, let's give her safety and health for Christmas ;)
