You’ve heard the old saying, “When it rains, it pours.” This is certainly the case for Lisa Harris, a single mother of four beautiful children.
After a divorce, Lisa decided to share her teaching and singing talent by starting “Sing with Lisa Vocal Studios,” out of her home. She wanted to share how music was able to help her confidence and how it gave her strength through difficult times. She also saw the need and wanted to help the youth in her community realize their potential and understand how valuable they are to those around them.
Her business has grown significantly, and she now has a vocal studio in her backyard where she teaches her students. She has also provided jobs for two additional teachers who teach from the studio; one being her daughter Hailey.
Among all of the success Lisa has found, she has also experienced significant hardships. Three years ago, her oldest daughter passed away at the age of 17, and just two weeks ago Lisa was diagnosed with breast cancer and will start treatments this week.
In addition, Lisa now faces the possibility of losing her home and being forced to move. She must pay $7,000 by Thursday to avoid this. If Lisa loses her home, she also loses her business, and it is in this time of need that we, as friends and students, are pulling together to do everything possible to help. Milagros is joining this effort along with several other businesses.
Through all this, Lisa remains one of the most optimistic women you will ever meet, who has blessed many lives through her example of faith and determination to serve those around her.
Please join us as we gather together to show our support for Lisa and her family, during this difficult time.
