Meet Our 2022 Angel Grant Recipient

Dear Santa's Angel,

Our Angel Grant project has been running for an incredible ten years. The generosity of people like you who have donated over the years to help women in need is inspiring.

Everyone at Empowering Women has newfound gratitude for all the things that are truly meaningful in life. Our families, our friends, and the communities that surround us. In that spirit, we once again reach out to ask your support for a special family in need this holiday season.

Our recipient this year is a wife, mom and new grandmother who was very active in her community. Many years ago, she was diagnosed with a rare liver disease. She was able to live a vibrant life for a long time with the help of her doctors and healthy choices. Three years ago, her liver disease flared up where she became critically ill and required a liver transplant. She was hospitalized for several months waiting for a liver donor – with the clock ticking against the fears she would become too sick to accept it. She and her family were overcome with joy when a match came through and her transplant was successful. Our recipient was so grateful to enjoy life with her family and friends again, only to have the new liver become infected this year with the same rare disease. While she has maintained her healthy precautions, her medical treatments have been expanded to try to help her avoid needing another transplant soon.

The financial impact on her family has been massive. Her husband (and high school sweetheart!) has become their sole source of income as she has been unable to work since her hospitalization. They sold their home to help pay for the first transplant and extensive medical treatments, but the new medical costs have stretched their entire extended family. They have avoided asking others outside their family for any financial support because of their humble nature. Our Board has selected this worthy recipient because of the impact we can offer through a significant anonymous grant.

The holiday season is upon us. A magical and joyful time of year. We would love to shower this family with encouragement and an opportunity to witness the love and joys of the season from the generosity of the community around them.

Empowering Women Thru Motion will be issuing an anonymous grant from our regular fundraising to help this beautiful family and woman in need. We are asking for your generous support through a tax-deductible donation to help make our grant even more significant – every $100 pays for another week of medications and a company match can double that impact!

May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving, and a joyful holiday season.

From all of us at Empowering Women Thru Motion!
