Noor has been suffering from Graves' Disease since she was 20. She is a talented journalist and is just beginning her career. Her health insurance will not cover the two $25,000 surgeries necessary. We're hoping to raise a mere $5,000 to help.

Our friend, we'll call her Noor because she would kill us if she knew we were trying to help, has been suffering from the effects of Graves' Disease since she was 20. She is one of the most talented writers/journalists we know and there's no denying that having a strong, intelligent Muslim woman working in the media is important in and of itself, but here's the thing, Noor is so much more than a journalist. She is immensely strong; in the past few years she's lost both a brother and her father and she still manages to inspire her friends to be better in their Islam, always wearing a smile.

Noor is just starting out in her career and her health insurance will not cover the two separate surgeries necessary for her condition. Each surgery is estimated to cost about $25,000 and since she does not have the luxury of relying on her family (as I and many others do) we thought we'd step in and see if you, our friends and family, could help this friend and valuable member of our ummah. We're hoping to raise a mere $5,000 to help with her medical and recovery expenses. We understand that times are tough but inshaAllah anything you give will be incredibly helpful. Even if you are unable to donate please keep her in your du'as. JazakAllah!!
