Dying woman seeks caregiver for beloved 15-foot-long plant

LANCASTER, Pa. — A Pennsylvania woman who’s dying of cancer is trying to find a home for her beloved 15-foot-long plant.

LNP reports Gabrellen Pfarr has a few months to live after deciding not to pursue further treatment for cancer. Now, the 83-year-old wants to find a caring home for the sprawling plant she’s been nurturing for 10 years in her Lancaster apartment.

She says her husband will move in with family members after she dies, and they don’t have enough room or natural light to take on the plant.

“When people walk into the room, the plant is the first thing they notice,” Pfarr said. “It’s pretty big. I have plant food and I put just a pinch of that in — and water.””
