Thank You Nordstrom!
Because of YOUR willingness to Stand Up For a Friendship you have helped us support a new Walk With Sally match through their first critical year! Please meet Roobina and Jaclyn, matched on May 22, 2018.
Roobina & Jaclyn
Jaclyn is 17 years old and her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, at the same time her parents filed for divorce. Everything in her world came crashing together and still she shares, “[My mom] wants us to know that this world has support and safe places to fall.” Her mom has stayed admirably strong to continue to encourage Jaclyn and her two younger sisters to do the same. Jaclyn is excited to have someone to talk to for guidance and support. She loves to laugh, has an interest in comedy and is inspired by powerful women like Maya Angelou.
Jaclyn was matched with Roobina, a powerful woman herself having a background in microbiology as a Clinical Scientist. As an adult Roobina lost her sister to brain cancer, which left a gaping hole in her life. She hopes make a difference in Jaclyn’s life and we can see this is taking shape! These two share beautifully powerful personalities that will blossom throughout their friendship. Jaclyn’s mom shared, “The way you’ve matched my daughter is like some kind of sorcery or magic, they are perfect together!”
ecause you stood up, you are now forever a part of this friendship and their journey. See you in 6 months!
