Tanya's life-saving fundraiser: an update

Tanya’s appeal (as featured on #MEAction Network here) has reached the half-way point in under two weeks.
Tanya says:
“I am absolutely shocked and amazed at the generosity of all of you beautiful people! I didn’t get my expectations up on purpose when I began with this, it was simply out of desperation as it was the last port of call – we had tried all the normal channels of trying to find/ask for funds for years, often going back to the same government departments again and again, always to be turned away. They knew that I couldn’t survive on the pension alone with all of my extra medical expenses. And they literally left me for dead.
“I want to thank everyone who has given so far… Whether it be $5…$50…or the unthinkable $5000… I am deeply grateful, and wish I could do more than just send out a GIANT electronic hug to thank you. Please know that if you can only donate $2 that will still mean a lot to me and make a difference… I understand, and encourage only to give what is comfortable for your budget.
“I never thought in my life, I would have to be brought to my knees to practically beg for help from the community around me. But it is YOU who have picked me up – people who I may never have met – and friends and family who I will never be able to repay. I was on my own in this room… And I thought I had been left for dead by the entire world… You have given me hope. And if enough is raised, a chance at healing and recovery! With deepest gratitude Love, Tanya.”
There remains a way to go in reaching the target, and any support is gratefully received. Visit Tanya’s fundraising site or Facebook page today to pledge your support.
Thank you!
