Dearest Friends, Family, and Loved Ones of Robin Powell,
Robin has been suffering with internal bleeding for over 17 days now, which has caused chronic fatigue and severe anemia. On December 10, 2016, she was admitted to Glendale Adventist Hospital for blood transfusions and emergency surgery to stop the bleeding. As a result, she been bedridden and unable to drive, work, cook or clean. Her doctors have prescribed continued bedrest until she regains her strength. The surgery was a success by all accounts, but she is still experiencing some bleeding, although not as much as before. She is exhausted from loss of blood. Her doctors say her hemoglobin will take three to four more weeks to stabilize. This may mean additional transfusions and more days off from work. This health crisis was unexpected and has quickly depleted what little savings she had. Robin does not have sick or personal leave and is deeply concerned about covering essential expenses like her rent, utility bills, food, and her car note. Robin communicated with her landlord about her current condition but unfortunately they refuse to make arrangements with her. To Robin's dismay, she was given an ultimatum to either pay rent in full by the end of the month and on time for January or move. Robin will recover and heal more quickly without the added stress of worrying about being evicted and how she will pay for food and her vehicle.
I went to visit Robin this evening and felt moved to create this website for her as a way to reach out to loved ones to ask for support and life- affirming prayers. I grocery shopped for Robin and bought a fresh and hot meal to her for dinner. She was famished when I arrived, devouring the sandwich right away. During this season of love, connection, generosity, and joy, would you kindly send Robin your well wishes and extend your heartfelt support in any way you are able so that she may live with greater peace of mind and ease of body.
If you are a close friend and are able to visit her and help her to clean house or buy groceries that would be much appreciated.! If you are able to contribute financially, that would be deeply appreciated . She needs to cover her rent, car payment and expenses for December and January so that she may recover peacefully and stress free. Your generosity would be a blessing.
Of course, all of your prayers, kindness and compassion are warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated!
