Suze is a beautiful mother of 7 children and a loving wife.
Right now, she is in a hospital bed…3 hours from her family…fighting for her life.
She is 35 years old and was recently diagnosed with ALL (Acute lymphoblastic leukemia).
She is the cousin of our very own Gina Erickson.
This past weekend, Gina took a road trip to visit her cousin.
As Gina and her friends and family visited with Suzy, they noticed her laptop. They noticed as Suzy struggled to keep the computer from freezing while she Skyped her children.
Gina had an idea – how wonderful would it be to get an iPad for Suzy! Even better if she could find a way to get two (one to send home to the kids), so they could FaceTime each other! She would have the technology to “see” her children – without it freezing!
There is a private event/group on Facebook…raising money so that Suzy can get rid of the dinosaur laptop and be gifted with an iPad!
People have been donating a couple of dollars…and by this afternoon…there was almost $300 towards an iPad!
Zumba Family…I know we can help make this happen. A couple of dollars. Even a dollar. Just go to your PayPal account and you can “gift” an amount to Gina’s email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in which she has an account ready to purchase the iPad (but I’m crossing my fingers for iPads plural) as soon as possible.
Thank you for your generosity. Our Zumba family has the largest heart! Gina did not ask me to do this, and I don’t know Suzy but I can only imagine how hard (what an understatement) to fight cancer AND be away from your family. My heart and prayers are with her.
Let’s get her an iPad within the week! Zumba Love.
