Help Save Layla & Get Her to Texas!

Help Save Layla & Get Her to Texas!

From Sandra Napier

I'm raising money to help my cousin, Layla Basaran. She has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Intestinal cancer, and is homeless. The funds will be used for her immediate shelter, then to move her here when my place is ready.

I’m raising funds for my cousin Layla Basaran. She has found herself homeless, and with a diagnosis of Stage 3 Intestinal Cancer. There are no shelter resources in Arkansas where she lives, unless you’re a single parent with dependent children. So right now, she is couch surfing & living out of her car. She doesn’t bring in enough on SSI to pay for medical treatments AND rent. So something MUST be done.

The money I am raising for her will get her into temporary shelter, such as an extended stay motel, so she can prepare healthy meals & stay clean. Long-term, I will be making plans to bring her here to Texas to live with me, while awaiting Section 8 & getting connected with medical & social services here in. But I have to get a place myself, first. I was waiting until I have the funds for moving expenses, but I’m not sure how long that would be. So part of the money will go toward getting us an apartment, so I can get Layla here more quickly. As you know, you can’t waste any time with cancer.

The rest of the money will be going toward Layla’s future medical needs. She wants to fight this cancer naturopathically, so her treatment won’t be covered by Medicare/Medicaid.

Thank you so much for any gift of any size. And please share! We gotta get Layla to Texas!
