Marilyn and Max Need Your Support

Marilyn, a 72-year-old lesbian, lives alone and is mostly closeted out of fear of rejection by neighbors and medical providers. Ever since her partner died, she feels that she cannot be her full self around anyone. Her only visitors are through deliveries and an occasional check-in from a health aide.Her isolation has led to despair, and she has even considered suicide.

Max, age 21, has been using crystal-meth with some friends for a while, but lately there has been more all night partying and now he has lost his job. Max has been in a shameful cycle of meth use "just one more time," which has taken him down a road of unprotected sex, fear, attempts to stop, and using again the next day.

They need your help now!
