I am Sarah, a single mum of beautiful boy and I am from Belgium but leaved in England for the past 8years.I never thought I would do this one day but I am here to ask for the support and help of everyone to help a very close friend of me in desperate need, Lina.
Lina is a beautiful and talented girl, she finished her architecture study in France and decided to go to england to improve her english and see where life could take her.
She started working with children teaching french and art craft she loves to be surrounding with kids as she is herself the oldest in her family of 7 children, and with the money she was making she starting to take english class to improve her english.
After a year she became confident with the language and decided to look for opportunity and start looking for job in her field witch is the architecture industry.It was very difficult as she just left France with no experience and this industry is very thought meanly looking for people with experience. But this did not let her give up she decided to continu working with kids and now instead of studying english she went to take course in order to update her architecture knowledge with uk low and regulation. She is very determined and hard worker after a year of hard work she decided to give herself an other chance and as no one wanted to give her the opportunity to work for them she decided to create the opportunity for herself and start her own business. It was not easy as she put herself under a big pressure as she was evolving in very competitive environment nevertheless after few month she took on board her first project and accomplished it in brilliant way and she start slowly building up and after a year she could live form her own passion and her own work so it was very big achvievent for her.
Meanwhile she met a men from middle east that was initially supposed to help her but this turn ito a relation ship. And this when the hell started for her...
As her friend I could see the toxic influence of this person but did not know what to for my friend, he was around her just to use her but for some reason her love made her blind. I lost contact with her for 2 years and once I randomly met her in a shopping centre and believe me that was the shock of my life, she became so skinny her face was pale and her smile was gone... I asked what was wrong and we went for a coffee and she open up to me and told me what happened and what this men did to her . To cut the story short, suddenly the guy disappear she lost contact with him he phone was off his flat was empty she went all around his friend no one knew where he was gone. After few days she start understanding because of all the letter under her name that was redirected to her address he left her with £15000 worse of debt he took all her money took loan under he name open a business under her name, left her with gas and electricity unpaid under her name and much more . She did not know what to do, how to face it and after a while she found out that he went back to his home country and was infact married and had 3 children.This was the shock of her life.She tried to face the situation and try to keep up with payment however everyday she was facing new difficulties, belief, court , fin...she did not want to share this with anyone, neither her friend or her family as she did not want her family to worry as they having they own problem and also because her proudness was all what she had left. When I knew about her situation I even myself give her money form my saving I had £3000 that I kept for my son but I just felt that she was in need and I had to help.
Nowadays we living in society where money is everything and can really destroy someone life and in this the case for Lina today, as when she realised what this men did to her it was the shock of her life and I am convinced that he caused the disease she is suffering of today.
I am her today to seek your help because despite the massive money issue lina is having she shared with me an other unfortunate and very sad new that she has been diagnosed with a breast cancer I really did not know what to say when she informed me because life is just not giving her rest at all.
At this moment all my love and prayer are going to her and her family as they did not know what she was going through until today and the most difficult is yet to come...
Lina is going to turn 30 years old on the 5 of july and I would like to ask each one of you that read the story to try to help me eventually donate as little as £1 put all our effort could help her to believe in human being sincere love and compassion.
I know that your mental health can have a massive impact toward recovery and I know that deep down this man has caused her this cancer. I want her to be free in her mind to fight this and I want her to fight for her life to fight for the love her family, she is so young and do not deserve this no one actually deserve to suffer because someone else took advantage of your big heart generosity sincerity...
I believe that with this donation we could give her the chance to fight for her life... lets all try to make her 30 years old birthday a special day...and to prove her that life deserved to be lived..
Thanks to all of you for reading me and I really and deeply hope that our effort will keep her alive. God Bless you
