A friend in need

by
Hello sweetlings!


This one is a bit of a different journal. I really wanted to help a friend out and give them a bit more exposure since they are facing some very unfortunate and difficult times.

https://www.gofundme.com/f/cancer-discrimination-fund-f...

TLDR:
Their cancer surving mother is being abused at her work due to her cancer and the time she spent on disability recovering from it. They are trying to force her to quit by mistreatment. She wants to sue them but they can't afford the legal fee.

If you haven't any means to donate -which is perfectly fine and understandable- please help spread the word around so the family may receive the justice and peace of mind they deserve.



As for me,commissions are being worked on, I'm sick, got the hubby sick, life's busy. Not much to updoot. :Y

Take care everyone and thank you very much for your time!

You can count me in on this one.
Similar things happened to my mother a while back. She worked at a veterans retirement home and did her job well, both patients and staff loved her. The head management changed and they were cleaning house (firing those they didn't like, and hiring those they wanted or friends of theirs. A very unfair deal) so she was walking on eggshells. She had to have open heart surgery and after taking off to have it and returning under the instructions of light work, they sacked her the moment they thought it was safe. Literally making the staff THROW all her office stuff and decorations in her suburban (They broke some stuff in the process). True unfair abuse I say.

I made a donation, Its not much, but I gave what I could spare.
Also, get well soon.

I know it's not much, but hopefully it'll help build up towards the goal.  Best of luck towards their recovery; yours and your hubby's as well.

This is disgusting of them to abuse a cancer patient and they should be sued for that. Donated and will spread the word asap

That's absolute BS that is happening to her. The fact her place of work can get away with that is truly horrendous.
Sadly I have no money or means of donating and no popularity to help get this message reached out to people... But I truly do hope the gofundme is successful and she gets the justice she deserves.
Also I hope for a swift and hopefully healthy recovery to you and your dearest.

In my opinion, anyone who would descriminate against the sick, including cancer, is a despicable pile of shit that deserves to be demoted to the lowest rungs of civilization.  Even if it's their job, or the law-  any any who would create such a rule, even worse.

There are actually attorneys who takes these cases for a percentage of any damages awarded. Most ONLY get paid if they win a case. Contact the local Bar Association for more information.

It's worth looking into.

Edit: I took the liberty of seeing where the GoFundMe (which takes a HUGE PORTION of donations) is based and quickly grabbed a link to the State Bar Association's search page.

https://member.vsb.org/attsearch/search.aspx

This link searches directly for lawyers in the area but a localized search can get names to plug into this one for accurate contact information. Search for discrimination, wrongful termination (they'll make up a reason to fire her if she doesn't quit), and/or personal injury lawyers.

Looking at the "Pro Bono" link on the sidebar might be a good start, too.

I hope it helps.

I just don't understand how people can be so cruel as to harass someone that survived cancer... You have to be pretty evil to do something like that... Makes me sick.. I hope she sues the F-ing love'n shit out of them, a company that has people like that working in a position of power deserves to stop existing as a company. Geeze.. what has the world come to...

Not only do I find this sad and heart-breaking but mistreatment of a person while they are sick is even worse.
I got to spread the word even further this is absolutely below human decency. I hope that company burns and she earns every cent from the ones trying to fire her.
