Please support Mary while she is under treatment - donations will go to helping her with rent, electric, water & sewer. Thank you!

Mary Christi has been going through testing related to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. She has been sick since February 2012 and is unable to work since March 2012. After working full time, major medical benefits were not offered from the company she worked for; there is no disability insurance and no property to sell. Mary’s husband passed away 7 years ago; no life insurance policy. She went back to school and finished the Medical Assisting Program at her local college; this was to give her the needed education to work in the medical field to help others. Her goal is still to continue to help others, but now needs help in paying rent and living expenses for past months (May, June and now July) and need funds to pay bills for the next 6 months of living expenses, gas and insurance for her 21 year old car.

Currently Mary has applied with Oregon’s Health Plan (OHP) but has not yet heard on whether or not they will start coverage, and if so, when; Mary has made below the poverty level of the benefit of a maximum earning level per month of $938.00 to be eligible for the program. Since April 2012 she has had no income.

This request is for living expenses while in medical treatment for a possible diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Mary's friends and family wish for a full recovery so she can fulfill her dream of helping others as a medical assistant.
