My name is Maria Venegas. I have a tumor in my brain and i am dying. My husband left to me his entire savings and i have decided to donate it to charity. I am 59 years old now and about 2 years ago, shortly after my husbands death i was diagnosed with cancer before we moved to South Africa 20 years ago. however i haven't found anyone i could trust. And now, since I 'm sick, I see in the eyes of my alleged friends, how are they waiting for my death so that they can share my husband $13million among themselves but I will not allow that to happen even if it's the last thing I will do.
When i die the only surviving heir of the whole money is my stepson, but he was never grateful to his father and even was violent. He has terrorized us all throughout these years besides, he is not a good person, someone who runs a brothel can not be a good person. You may be wondering why I chose you. But someone has to do it for me, because I can no longer wait even with the best of intentions.
It is my desire that 70 % of the money would be donated to cancer research as soon as the money reaches you successfully. but my step son shouldn't know about it. The remaining 30% you can keep it for your efforts. I was touched by the Lord and His love opened my heart and my eyes. I have asked the Lord to forgive all my sins, and I think he did it because he is merciful. I have a surgery in two weeks and the doctor has assured me a 50/ 50 chance to survive. This is my last attempt to preserve the hard-earned money from my husband before a further abuse by his son. Apart from that, he does not even need it. At the moment I can not perform telephone calls, due to the fact that my friend is worried and always around me and also the doctor does not allow me to use a cell phone. I 've got a chance to write this message with the help of my nurse, who showed me an internet caf? around here. Yesterday our family lawyer came. Luckily no one else was here so I
could initiate him peacefully with my project .
He assured me that he will prepare everything for the transaction and the change of my last will. Actually, I should not keep it as a secret, but I will only because such amount of money can make people fight over it and for that i dont want anyone to know. If you are convinced that you could help me with in this matter , then please respond as quickly as possible. I do not know how much time I have left. In all cases , I wish that you could use the love of the Lord in your life, and he shall guide and knowledge you.
God be with you love greetings.
Mrs. Maria Venegas.
