I am writing about a former tenant of mine, she is a middle-aged gay African-American woman named Ann Saucier. She was an avid reader of BLACKlines, in fact when I visited her today, I showed her a copy of the newspaper and she smiled. Ann suffered a brain hemorrhage last year and is unable to care for herself. She lives at the Alden-Lakeland Rehabilitation & Health Care Center located at 820 W. Lawrence Ave., Chicago, IL, 60640. The telephone there is (773) 769-2570.
Ann does not have any family and needs clothing or visitors. I was wondering if your newspaper could run a story about Ann because her condition is permanent and any help would be appreciated.
