All of us in Paulettes home thank the kindness of supporters and shall never be forgotten!

Paulettes story is below. The medical bills from cancer and (MS) have taken their castle away from them. Paulette had multiple properties with tenants and lost all but two. Paulette lives in a victorian home and had 3 families who rent from her. She is about to lose her castle with foreclosure because of the bills. She beat the cancer but but the bills are too much. All three families and her self are about to be put out on the streets.

Paulette is a Cancer Survivor now living with multiple sclerosis. One weekend in 2005 while on a hike in Utah with Steve and his family, Paulette started to have some serious trouble walking. Eventually Steve had to carry her down the mountain. It was then she decided that the balance issues and tingling in her legs were more than fatigue. She did some research and saw her doctor, got a nutritionist and came to the conclusion she had Multiple Sclorosis. (MS) A potentially debilitating disease in which your body's immune system eats away at the protective sheath that covers your nerves. In severe cases a person may lose the ability to walk or speak.

There is no cure.

The following Spring in 2006 Paulette went to Sanoviv. An advanced holistic care facility. They specialize in holistic remidies such as organic food and holistic supplements. This trip was very costly but benificial. She came home and was beginning a new supplement system as well as a Raw Food diet which is also costly. She continued to ride her bike and go on her adventures with Steve. Living a fairly normal life...

In 2007 Paulette noticed a lump in her breast. She was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. Again she went to Sanoviv and tried holistic remidies. When this proved to be not working and the cancer had spread, she had no choice but to try Chemotherapy. She had two surgeries to remove the cancer as well. When she began chemotherapy she was walking into the clinic. But in 2009 when she found out she had beat the cancer...She wasn't walking without help.

The radiation from the chemo progressed the MS process.

She had beat the cancer, but had lost the ability to walk on her own.

My wife Shayla is Paulettes care-giver and we are tenants trying to help her save our house and pay her bills.

At this current moment Paulette has mounds of medical bills to pay. When she was diagnosed with cancer her and Steve refinanced thier rental properties as well as there own home. (It too has rental units attached)

Paulette and Steve lost all but 2 houses last year due to forclosure. The home in which she and Steve now live and have resided in for the past 12 years is at risk. This home not only houses her and Steve but 2 other families as well. Plus Since Paulettes limited mobility she can not operate her business like she used to. Most days she holds appointments in her home. The complete bottom floor is her Mary Kay office.

What we are asking is for your help and support to get through this difficult time. Your support will help keep 3 families in a home instead of having to move with no where to go. If we reach our goal Paulette will be able to get caught up on the mortgage payments and once again will be able to start paying modified payments. If we reach over our goal we will be able to pay off some of the medical bills!

Who am I?

Hi My name is Shayla. I am a tenant living in this home that is at risk of foreclosure. My fiance and I live in the top floor 2 bedroom apartment of Paulettes 1895 Victorian home. We are not the only tenants. There is another couple that live in the Back 1 bedroom apartment.

Not only am I a tenant, I am Paulettes Personal Assistant. I have been living and working with Paulette for a little over 2 years now and have seen many hardships. I have grown to love her so much that sometimes I call her Mom. I truly care for her and know first hand how hard it has been for her to recover. Not only do I love Paulette but I love living in her home. Our house is truly incredible and is in the historic district of downtown Colorado Springs.

The other couple that lives in the home also love this home. We have all grown into a big family. We all look out for each other and care for one another. We are all asking for your support in this difficult time.

Please feel free to read more about me in my about me section and if you have any questions please feel free to call 719-646-6468 or you can email me at

Thank you so much for your support and even if you can't contribute I do ask you to share Paulettes story with others and help get the word out.
