My best friend Lajuanda has waited 3 years to be accepted into nursing school. She is 54 years old, had a job as a financial advisor but felt a passion to be a nurse. Lajuanda went through a divorce and moved to Denver to be near family. She has worked in eldercare and is a compassionate person who gives to everyone. She was accepted into nursing school but now is not financially able to pay for her living expenses, even if she gets student loans. Family and friends are not in the position to help her financially but are there for her emotionally. I am hoping that the larger community will reach out to her in her time of need to help her dream of being a nurse come true. In a world where there is such a need for caring , compassionate people, I am praying that good people will circle around this deserving, hard working woman so she can help others!
