She uses her vehicle to take tenants to apartment showings all across town, sometimes driving over fifty miles in a single weekend, helping them save money on gas or a bus ticket. Safety and reliability have always been the number one priority for Coburn Place and Lily knows it’s important to transfer those attributes to the use of her personal vehicle as well.

Heather Porowski, Breast Cancer Warrior – WhatFriendsDo
WhatFriendsDo was started by Fran, Aimee, and Stephanie Kandrac when their good friend Laura was diagnosed with brain cancer. They learned first hand what friends do when loved ones need us most. From driving to and from an appointment, dropping off meals, or organizing school pick-ups, their online tool allows friends and family to organize all the help that an individual may need when they are experiencing a major life event.
Heather Pirowski started utilizing the WhatFriendsDo platform when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Being a part of WhatFriendsDo allowed her to ask for the help she and her family needed. Heather truly understands the importance of giving back when people are going through a major life event. Sometimes something as simple as running to the grocery store can help immensely. Heather is looking forward to using the WhatFriendsDo platform to show up for others like people have shown up for her.
