Hope and Change for Haiti organizes a fundraiser for Marie Michaelle Saintil, a community activist, who is living in Rhode Island with stage 4 Metastasized breast cancer.

3 years ago Marie Michaelle was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer in one breast. She had surgery and removed the cancer and the entire left breast. A year later it spread to her liver. She started chemo therapy and it was causing more harm to her body and the tumors were not shrinking. A year from that the cancer spread to both her brain and spine. She had radiation and it didn’t work. Today Marie Michaelle is living with Stage 4 Metastasized breast cancer.

She is now under hospice care and is no longer under treatment. A lot of the cancer lies in her central nervous system and as of today there is under 20% research out there for this and there are no current treatments available.

Marie Michaelle is only 41 years old. She is a Haitian born Spoken Word Artist, a Poet, a Performer, and authored 2 books of poetry. She was working as a bartender to pay her bills. Her physical conditions, mostly side effects from the medications, kept her from being able to work. Now she is writing, performing and telling her story so you can understand.

Ticket starts at $20.

Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 for Marie Michaelle to help her with some urgent living expenses and some medical bills that are not covered by her insurance. Hopefully you can help us to raise more than that by purchasing tickets to attend, invite friends and family and make donations. Ticket starts at $20.

Pumpkin soup that is a special traditional Haitian soup will be served. There will be live performance by several artists in the community.
