Maria is a 66 yeah old woman who is currently living in Oakland, CA. Maria was diagnosed with stage III cervical cancer in 2014. When Maria started treatment for her cancer she found herself unable to care for herself. Her spouse was forced to take a leave of absence from work to care for her. Due to her spouses unemployment, they were unable to keep up with their bills.

The Love from Margot Foundation was able to provide Maria with a financial grant to help her pay her bills and get back on her feet so that she could continue her treatment with more peace of mind.
