Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Hello everyone! This is Laurie Halperin (Cameron at BW )
I am adding information, just in case you are unaware of what tragedy has happened to Laura. I am explaining for Laura, as she is unable at this time.
Several days ago, Laura had an accident and became a burn victim. She has 2nd and 3rd degree burns on her foot. That being said, she is out of work for a few months. Being a single mom, and a massage therapist will devistate her financially. If you do not know, as a massage therapist, when you do not work, you do not get paid.
This being said, I started this gofundme.com page to help one of the most wonderful person, kind, giving, loving mother's I know, Laura Dittman. I learned of how helpful it can be when somebody mentioned CaringBridge to me when I lost my Sweet baby girl Kirsten Michelle Hopkin. My husband Rod Halperin set it up. Had he not, I would have lost everything I have worked for my whole life. I am not talking about purses, vacations, luxuries......I would not have been able to eat, drive, have a roof over my head, paid bills..... the essentials to survive. It was very hard to accept, as I used to be a very secure independent woman, as is Laura. It was an eye opener, and very humbling, to realize that the human race, when the chips are down, we DO help each other. I recieved donations from peoples heart, whether $5 or $5000 dollars, people gave from their heart. Is is why I am trying to do the same for Laura and her family.
You can also go to Caring Bridge.com start you own email & password, then click search person, use her name Laura Dittman. It should take you to her page directly. Also, there is a meal service, if you would like to help with meals for Laura and her family. The website is takethemameal.com enter the name Dittman.....the password is Savannah.
Please, I pray, that you will pass this on to others, donate if you can from you heart, be it time, food or income. When you help others, God, always gives back 10x more. I know this from personal experience.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
May God Bless you and your family and enrich your personal life.
