Sue Jesch Medical Fund
Now she needs our help. For the past two years, Sue's friends and students have watched her fight increasing weakness, stiffness, and pain. "I'll give up playing violin, if I must," she said, "but I won't stop teaching." Sue hasn't stopped teaching, even when she can barely walk. She was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's (or a Parkinson's-like) disease. Her medical bills are skyrocketing, only partially covered by an insurance plan with a huge deductible of $4,000 every year; the copay on her medications costs hundreds of dollars each month; she's lost income because she can't perform; and she is facing possible travel to specialists and clinics out of state, incurring non-reimbursable transportation and lodging costs.
I'm starting this campaign to help Sue Jesch reduce the growing financial burden she and her husband are facing. Sue's colleagues in the Carson City Symphony and other music groups, her students and their parents, and friends in the community have been asking what they can do, how they can help. Our contributions to this fund will help pay her medical expenses.
"This is helping my spirits so much!"
