Sarah and I have been friends for 27 years and there isn't a time I can think of when she hasn't been there for a friend or family member. I have watched her go without so her children can have that little extra. With the regular chaos of life, she even took the time to volunteer to foster dogs and cats. During her marriage she was a stay at home mom and her and her husband are raising 5 children. Three years ago her husband came down with a debilitating disease called Neuromyelitis optica with transverse myelitis. This disease caused him to be paralyzed from the waste down. He was no longer able to work and Sarah is his full time care giver. To try and make ends meet, Sarah has taken on boarding and walking dogs along with the disability checks her husband Francisco receives. A lot of times this still isn't enough. With caring for her husband and her children, she has no time for herself, but she never complains. She always wants to make sure that whatever is going on with the problems of day to day life that her children aren't affected. Recently her dryer died and she doesn't have the money to replace it. She has been hauling laundry for 7 people to the laundry mat on top of her dog walking duties, taking her husband to doctor visits and taking care of her children. There is no one I can think of who deserves this Christmas Wish more than her. Her strength and determination to make sure her family is o.k is beyond belief. I am amazed by her everyday.
Thank you so much. This will be life changing for her.
