Soul Rebel Performance Troupe is proud to present a fun evening of talented actors/actresses performing short plays, Monologues and skits to help raise money for Estanna Brewer. Lets start the new year by helping Soul Rebel giving life to this young girl who’s in need of a transplant. Please read below a letter from her family.
Dear Friends and Family, … We are writing on behalf of our daughter Estanna. Let us tell you a little bit about Estanna. She has a twin sister named Diarrah. She is 19 years old and has been on Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN) her entire life, along with additional nutrition via G-Tube. After several Hickman catheter placements, infections and intestinal surgeries, her doctor’s informed us that her only chance of a having a healthy life would be to have an intestinal transplant. Estanna was placed on the transplant waiting list at Georgetown University Medical Center on June 21, 2013, in which while her name was actively placed she is attending her high school graduation. Estanna loves to read, listen to music and enjoy time with her family whom she loves very much. She also likes to watch old T.V. programs such as 7th Heaven, Saved By The Bell and her favorite Fresh Prince of Bel Air. When her health permits, Estanna is part of the liturgical dancers at our church, (Mt.Calvary Baptist Church) visiting with friends and going to the movies. Even with insurance there will be many uninsured, transplant-related expenses such as: co-payments and deductibles, doctor visits, travel and temporary relocation to the transplant center and the costly immunosuppressant medications that she will need to take for the rest of her life. To help with this financial burden, a fundraising campaign has been established with SEFCU, in Estanna’s Honor anyone that would like to make a donation can go to any SEFCU Branch. Please note that all donations are tax deductible the monies are used for transplant expenses only. Title of Fund: “Transplant Donation Fund for Estanna Brewer” Everyone tells us that we have a strong little girl, so knowing that she will have a better quality-of-life after the transplant gives us hope. We greatly appreciate your support for our daughter during her journey in whatever way you can. Thank you, John, Linda and Diarrah Brewer
