I have sent a card and quilt out to Stacy and asked that she or her co-worker please send me information on her 2 children who are teens so we can get them a quilt out as well.
Please, if you feel led to send them one, please let me know and make sure you let them know you are part of Layers of Hope - Quilting 911.
I am NOT the one who is doing the 'go fund me,' drive for her, this is her agency!
Stacy started working for Prince Georges Public Safety Communications
in 2000 and was quickly well known around the center for her calm,
caring nature and willingness to help others whether it was in the
center or on the street. When the time came Stacy volunteered to be a
certified training officer in order to insure she passed on her
extensive knowledge, dedication and care to the younger employees so
they developed the same love for the job that she has. Stacy is one to
never complain and rarely asks for help except in times that she wants
to ensure what she is doing is the best for the situation at hand. That
being said now it's our turn to ask for help for Stacy. Stacy has had a
long, extensive medical history which includes a courageous, victorious
battle with cancer, stokes and now suffers from seizures which have
prevented her from working full time, most of the time she is unable to
work for weeks at a time. She has struggled but always has maintained
her unique, caring qualities day in and day out. Stacy has done all
this while working as a Police Dispatcher at one of the busiest counties
in the country. She has been able to do all of this and even found
unique ways to maintain her busy profession, volunteering to work some
of the busiest channels even though a childhood accident that took
several of her fingers. That's the type of person Stacy is. Where there
is a will Stacy has always found a way.
Because of her extensive medical history she has totally
exhausted all of our Counties available resources to assist her in
maintaining her pay check so when her health incapacitates her that she
can't make it work she does not get paid. Stacy is raising two
teenagers on her own after her husband passed away a few years ago all
the while trying to maintain aging cars, a house, pay bills and to put
food on the table for her children. Stacy rarely asks for help so we
are asking for her. We are asking that we all step up and try to help
this behind the scene hero by any means by helping to take away some of
the stress of having to force herself to come to work when she shouldn't
by helping to pay for some of her bills and put food on their table.
Any amount helps and knowing her the smallest of get well wishes in the
form of letters or cards letting her know we are here and thinking about
her would mean the world to her. Thank you.
