Fibromyalgia is debilitating and Terresa is unable to work. Please help us raise $5,500 by May 31 to secure her housing.

Dear Friends,

There is much to be grateful for so far this year. Most importantly, Terresa has not experienced a recurrence of the thyroid cancer. Doctors continue to monitor her closely, thanks to your support in providing health care coverage. She has, however, been diagnosed with fybromialgia, a painful and debilitating condition which doctors speculate was triggered by the stress of the original cancer treatment. The symptoms of fybromialgia have made it impossible for Terresa to return to work and doctors expect the condition to continue for the foreseeable future. Having exhausted her savings, Terresa has applied for permanent disability SSI, which will hopefully be granted in October after the 5 month mandatory waiting period. I am writing to ask those who are able to contribute to help fund Terresa's living expenses during the next few months. $5,500 would cover these basic costs until SSI funding becomes available. I know many of you were kind enough to offer your help should it be needed again. It is.

If you are more comfortable sending a check please mail them to:
Terresa Lauer
4858 Rivervale Drive
Soquel, CA 95073

Thank you for your generosity and good thoughts,
