May's presence and influence in the community has inspired many of us. From the event fundraiser page:

May has always devoted her life to helping others and advocating for human rights. She is an amazing mother of five beautiful children, ranging from 14 years to 18 months, and is always committed to providing the best opportunities for her family. Indeed, May is one of the most caring and generous persons we know. She devoted her studies and career helping those in need, and was most recently a nurse in the Oncology unit of Seattle’s Swedish Medical Center. May has also dedicated her life as an advocate for human rights and was committed to the advancement of human rights across the globe. May was a key founder of Gabriela Seattle, an organization working to advance the struggle of women in the overall movement for educating, defending, and advocating for human rights of Filipinas globally.
