71 year old Sherrill W. is battling cancer while taking care of her 51 year old mentally challenged son. Sherrill was the victim of theft and left virtually penniless. Her only income is Social Security and SSI for her son. She wants to work but no one is hiring a 71 year old cancer patient. With her savings gone her Social Security is not enough for her rent, bills, medical insurance, etc. Sherrill is getting some food from a church who also helps take her to medical appointments. RBF paid one month’s rent and provided a food card so she could put groceries in her home. We also referred Sherrill to other charities and organizations who could give her longer term assistance.
