Erum K. is a 46-year-old woman who currently lives alone in Oakland, CA. Erum was diagnosed with rectal cancer in 2014, forcing her into a state of panic. She reached out the Love from Margot Foundation looking for any kind of financial support, she is unemployed and struggling. In the midst of her diagnosis, she was immediately hospitalized. Mike Murphy, founder of Love from Margot, and his assistant were able to go to the hospital to visit her and discuss her needs. As soon as they met, Erum immediately burst into tears and her desperation and fear was overwhelming.
The Love from Margot Foundation was able to provide her with a financial grant to help her in her time of need. One of Love from Margot’s assistants was able to personally deliver her first check to Erum in person at the hospital, and was more than happy to sit and visit with her for a few hours.
