"I recall how gently Paula held and rocked her baby sister, Lisa, in her tiny chair, while I rocked their newborn baby brother, Gary. Her hands were soft and sure and always willing. She continued this use of her loving hands as she grew and learned to cook, become an in demand baby sitter. Her hands allowed her to compete on the swim teama nd made her a clasical pianist for 10 years. At Rutgers University, she earned a degree as a Certified Nurse-Midwife and realized her dream of lovingly assisting women to birth their babies naturally. Thousands of times her always-ready hands caught a new life, softly and safely. For nearly two decades, she had shared her passion and joy caring for women as a Women's Heatlth Clinician, until fourteen years ago, when she found her own breast lump... a fear of every woman lives with. She courageously dealt with breast cancer and years of treatmen, while raising her three children, and returning to work, doing the work she loved and did best.
Last spring, the metastatic diagnosis came as the unwelcomed and devious breast cancer cells that had been hidden, returned and settled in her lymph nodes and bones. She no longer cares for patients, but anyone who knows Paula, knows her hands are alwayss able and willing to help others."
---Barbara Vincent, (Paula's mother)
It's now time for us to give a helping "hand" Her brother in law Jim, learned that her insurance will not cover the treatment that she so desperately needs to save her life. He wanted to help, so he put together this "Fun"draiser, and is asking each of you to put out your "helping Hands" and join us.
