Lashelle and Nya Celebrate A Special Mother’s Day
This mother’s day, our client Lashelle and her daughter Nya have a lot to celebrate. Nya just blew out the candles on a God’s Love cake for her 18th birthday, and she just got into her choice of colleges to start her degree in psychology. The future looks bright, but it hasn’t always been easy for this family of two.
“It's one of the hardest things to be sick as a parent, but it’s even harder when you’re a single parent.”
Next year, when Nya heads off to school to study psychology, she does so inspired by her mother’s life experience. She wrote her college essay about how her mother’s health journey drove her to pursue a life path that will allow her to help others.
Lashelle has spoken extensively with our nutritionists, as her diet needed to change a few times over the course of her treatment. She says that she never thought she’d work with a nutritionist for months on end, but the God’s Love nutritionists really listen to their clients.
“They make you feel comfortable. You don’t feel ashamed. [The God’s Love nutritionists are] very open, loving and supportive.”
Lashelle is so grateful to everyone who works at, volunteers with, and supports God’s Love. She especially wants to thank the chefs and drivers. She says in every bite and every encounter, you can feel the love that goes into the entire operation. Lashelle refers anyone she knows in her community who is living with serious illness to God’s Love because she knows what a difference it can make. “I want more people to talk about it, not to hold it for themselves, because it’s such a wonderful service.”
We’re wishing this wonderful mother and daughter a fabulous Mother’s Day and congratulations on this next chapter.
