Hello! Thank you in advance for reading about my fundraiser!
My name is Tiffany, and I am currently looking for funding for my wedding and event company in Jacksonville, Florida. I started doing event wedding a couple years ago as a hobby, and I love it. A couple years ago I started saving a little at a time to goes towards start up capital for my business. I was so proud of myself because I was able to manage to save over 5,000.00 to go towards office equipment, rent to lease for a office, and office and planning supplies. I was all set, and I was even able to quit my medical office job I was working at, to start my dream. Then on April 12, 2013 it all came crashing down.
It was suppose to be a visit at the mayo clinic to check on the lymphedema on my right leg but turned into a never ending long medical process. After doing some blood work, I received a call telling me to check in at the emergency room asap. They told me I needed a emergency blood transfusion. I found out I have aplastic anemia, and small tumors along the lining in my stomach. That was just the beginning of my health problems and medical bills. Well in order for me to continue care and pay for two major surgeries, I had to consolidate my business fund. And I know my health is way more important, but I really want to achieve my dream to and start my company. But the main reason would be is that I want to help my Husband contribute to our family financially. Right now we only have one income, and I am fighting with disability (social security). I really want to contribute, but no one will hire me because of my rotating schedule of doctor appointments, and upcoming surgeries. By starting this business I can financially contribute to my family while doing something I love.
My family has contributed to help me rebuild my business fund, but do to economic times they can only contribute a little. I am only 5,000.00 away from turning my dream into reality. So far I have been able to create a company website, but I need funding for all the other areas of my business. Please check out my website to see my talent and what I am capable of at www.simplysweetandstylishevents.com..... Planning peoples special moments and ocassions are not just a job to me, it is what I love to do! Thank you in adavance for your donations and your help!
