Portland's improv and theater community have benefitted greatly from Domeka's patient teaching, challenging direction and the shining examples of love, courage and humor that she provides through her personal mantra of “Love Harder”.
Now it's time to give back and give back hard!
Domeka has recently been diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, an aggressive cancer. Like many in the arts, Domeka is not covered by "Cadillac" insurance, nor does she have a lot of funds at her disposal. She has a high deductible and will soon be facing crippling bills for chemotherapy that began just under a week ago.
What you can do to help is to give generously. I have tentatively set the goal at $30,000, but really there's no fixed amount known yet.
I will adjust this site as her situation changes. Please give what you can and remember that this donation is not only to help preserve Domeka for what she can give us, but to preserve her own life for herself, and to preserve a mother for Luke (17), Charlie (8), and Gus (6).
