Paula’s life was thrown into upheaval when at age 53 she was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, COPD. Paula has been oxygen dependent since 2002 and after many hospitalizations and four operations, she has exhausted all treatment options and has been placed on the waiting list for a double lung transplant through the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS).

I believe Angels play a major part in my life daily. This is a post that Malinda Manifold Davidson made on my Silpada Fundraiser FB page. It is a perfect example how those who loved us here continue to love, protect, and guide us after they appear to have gone. Their soul remains with us for all time~ A man who took me to church every Sunday over 60 years ago is watching over me today~ My angels always lead me where I need to go and if I am not able to get there they come to me~ Thank you Mr. Hersey, Thank You Malinda, and Thank You God for all my blessings~ Malinda Manifold Davidson October 10 at 9:50pm · Rossville, MD · I am honored to be participating in this fundraiser for Paula. While talking to her, I realized that my great-grandfather, Russell Hersey, used to take Paula to church each Sunday morning while her father was working. That put a smile on my face! My father, Ray Manifold, also went to school with Paula. What a small world we live in. I am hoping to make it even smaller by bringing us together to help a fellow Kennard-Dale student. Blessings to all of you. Thanks for your consideration in helping. All of my profits will go directly to Paula.
