This year we met Kayla, a single mom who faced a personal health emergency, her child’s cancer diagnosis, caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s, domestic violence, and a divorce all while attending LCC’s nursing program. To provide her family stability and safety, Kayla enrolled at LCC to become a nurse. “The amazing people at LCC pulled out the lantern of clarity, the map of financial resources, stuck snacks of encouragement and positivity in my backpack, and guided me along the way. To say that LCC helped keep me going is an enormous understatement.” Kayla’s story of perseverance in the face of extreme adversity is inspiring. Your gift today changes the lives of individuals and families in our community!
