Edna B., 76, Doylestown, PA

Edna has faced many tragedies in her life.  She cared for her daughter who suffered with Cystic Fibrosis until she passed away at the age of 40.  Her son then died at the age of 41.  Her youngest daughter currently lives with her and suffers from mental illness.

Edna always tried to help others when she could.  When her local creek flooded, she made meals for the people who had to stay in a shelter.  She also babysat her neighbors children for free when they needed help.

Due to her very limited income, she cannot afford to make the move on her own. We need to raise $1,200 to help make her wish come true.  Please donate today!
