Dear Friends,

My name is Marcille Dear. My life has been littered with heartache, trials, and pain, yet onward I've persevered. At the age of 18, I found myself pregnant with my first child and soon after, due to this situation, I found myself a new bride. At the age of 32, I found myself diagnosed with bipolar disorder. My husband did not understand this disorder and therefore after 27 years of marriage and four children later, he decided to divorce me. Not long after this separation, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was devastating news, but I am a survivor.
I bore the loss of a daughter-in-law; and son and so at the age of 60, I found myself taking in three orphaned grandchildren ages 9, 10, and 12. As difficult as it was to raise three pre-teens through their teenage years at my age, we made it through.
Just when I thought that life could not get worse--I mean early unexpected pregnancy, bipolar, divorce, cancer, losing my son....each of these things are devastating individually, but stacked together were too much a load for one person to carry--I soon discovered my trials and pain had only begun. I went through treatment for cancer of my appendix, five hernia surgeries, and a gal bladder removal all while caring for my deceased son's children.
Making it to my retirement years was a miracle of God no doubt. I felt that I might finally get a few years to enjoy what was left of my life, pain-free, turmoil free...Recently, however, I discovered that again I am battling cancer, pre-Leukemia that will remain with me for my remaining years.
I am a soon-to-be 77 year old woman, imploring for your help. If not for my age and previous struggles, I might still have enough stamina to deal with both focusing on feeling better as well as finding a way to pay for the treatments that I cannot afford. However, I need to place the focus of my remaining energy on my health. If you find it in your heart to pay it forward, to help me financially, I would be eternally grateful! It would give this tired body a peace of mind knowing that one of my worries is being taken care of, and this fragile heart an overwhelming joy due to a stranger's kindness!

Thank you!
