Our mother Dawn is currently in critical condition in Albany Hospital after suffering two massive heart attacks. Her doctors placed her in a medically induced coma to help her body heal and we are praying she wakes up soon now that the sedation has been lifted.

When she does wake up, we know that she has a long road ahead of her and will be unable to return to work for some time. Her husband, Dan, is also currently out of work due to diabetic complications and a recent hospitalization himself.


There is nowhere else we want to be right now than at our mother's bedside. But this means we are missing work and spending a great deal of money on gas to travel each day to Albany. We will help where we can with our mother's and Dan's bills but we cannot do this alone. We are asking for your support to help us through this medical crisis and to avoid what is sure to be a financial crisis.


ANY amount you can contribute will help us tremendously. No amount is too small and every donation is appreciated more than you can imagine.


Thank you for your thoughts and your prayers and for being a blessing to us during this very scary time.


With all our love,


Kayla, Charlie, Allen Jr. and Justin
