Geraldine is a 46-year-old woman who reached out to us in 2014. Geraldine currently resides in Brentwood, CA. Geraldine, her husband and two children are originally from the Philippines. Geraldine was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. After her diagnosis, her husband suffered a stroke which has limited his abilities. Geraldine’s children tried to help as much as they could financially but her son had to return to the Philippines and can no longer help support her. She is left taking care of her husband, recovering from her own surgeries and treatments and has full responsibility of her daughter, who is autistic. Since the departure of her son, Geraldine has had trouble even putting food on the table.
When Geraldine reached out to the Love from Margot Foundation she had a simple request for food. The Love from Margot Foundation was able to provide Geraldine with enough financial support to feed her family, get her car fixed and catch up on her rent. In 2015, Geraldine reached out to us again, asking for a one time grant to help catch her up on her bills, that once again, had piled up after a family tragedy. The Love from Margot Foundation was able to provide Geraldine with another financial grant to help get her family on their feet.
