In a recent search looking for a particular person that one of our office staff knew of, Diviine Modestee's owner stumbled across the GoFundMe account of a woman trying to help her sister with her large medical bills and necessary surgery. The kindness of Rachel in wanting to help her sister really touched Chantelle, who comes from a large family of sisters and she felt moved to help.
The GoFundMe for Rachel's sister highlighted the following issues: "Hello, My sister is a single mom who has had every financial problem you could think of. She has also had every medical problem you could think of and with no way of paying for them. She recently was diagnosed with a stomach issue and was in need of an urgent and neccessary surgery to fix the problem and her constant pain. She squared away babysitters, work schedule and got everything in order for this surgery. She was scheduled to have it tomorrow, October 19, untill she got a call stating that she needed to pay $700 up front before this "urgent" surgery could be performed. Not having even $10 in her bank account she will not be getting this surgery and will have to suffer in pain untill she can get the money needed. We aren't asking for too much but enough for her to recieve this surgery and to help with medication afterwards. Thanks for your time & support!"
From Diviine Modestee's Diviine Deed Fund we were able to complete the amount that was needed for Rachel's sister to have her much-needed surgery. However, surgeries and after-care are both very expensive, so if you feel like you'd love to donate, just click on the photo to go directly to the GoFundMe page.

We Did It!
Thank You! We want to thank our customers for their support, in orders as well as personal donations, that helped exceed our goal of $5000 for Daniel. We contributed $5993!
Daniel is an amazing 18 year old that has already faced things that no teenager should have too. Three and a half years ago his world was turned upside down when he received the diagnosis of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. He and his family hit this disease head on and after 40 months of treatment his port was removed and he was ready to move on with his life. As you can imagine, they have formed an extremely close bond while on this journey that has changed them, their friends, and their community. They are the picture of strength, perseverance and love.
They would draw on these characteristics once again when only a few short months later they learned in April 2011 that his Leukemia was back with a vengeance and again the family has made the choice to press forward, bound and determined to beat this disease.
All families with these types of diagnoses face a magnitude of challenges, but the Leech’s are again unique, as they also take care of Daniel’s father, who in his early 50’s was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and requires 24 hour care, leaving Daniel’s mom, Sheila as the sole provider and caretaker for him, his 2 older brothers, and his dad. She does this all with amazing character, love, and compassion, which she has passed on to her boys!
Diviine Modestee will be there to participate and to present your donation. Join us in the fun and personally extend your support to Daniel.
