Family and friends are raising money for Virgie Paz-Castro, 57, uninsured and diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. Be a blessing today.

Every now and then a special friend comes into our lives. Virgie Paz-Castro is one of the special people who loves unconditionally and helps her family and friends without reserve. Today, Virgie needs our help and our blessings.

In September, Virgie was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast. Biopsies show lymph node involvement. To save Virgie's life, she needs major surgery and aggressive chemotherapy. Virgie will receive six weeks of chemo first followed by surgery and more chemo after surgery. In the meantime, the medical bills are piling up.

Virgie owns a small business doing medical billing. Like so many small businesses, health care insurance is unaffordable. Virgie's medical expenses are not covered by an insurance plan. She worries that the medical bills will force her and her husband into bankruptcy and the loss of their home. No one should have to make a choice between saving a home or saving a life.

You know the saying, "Count your blessings ...". Will you please be one of Virgie's blessings and make a contribution for her first round of medical expenses?

On behalf of Virgie, her husband and extended family, thank you for your help. And, peace be with you.
