Dawn's Medical Expenses

$4,924 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 63 people in 4 months
Created October 16, 2017
Our dear friend Dawn DePasquale slipped down some stairs after speaking at a conference in South Africa.  She wound up breaking her hip and had to have surgery to stabilize the bones so that they could heal properly.  She is now in the hospital recovering from the surgery but hopes to be stable enough soon to return to the United States for the many weeks she will be in rehabilitation.  Working with her doctor, a plan for transport has been created, but it will be expensive.  We would be very appreciative for any donations that can help this lovely lady get home and back on her feet!

A note from Dawn :)

"Hi Everyone, thank you so much for your love, prayers, support and help with my travel and related expenses. I feel so blessed to have each and every one of you in my life, and I feel wrapped in a bubble of love. Will contact each of you directly, but in the meantime, just know that the flight back was comfortable, and the threat of thrombosis (common in hip or knee surgeries, who knew?) was abated by being able to lie flat vs sitting for 15 hours. I'll be doing some rehab and PT work here in Sarasota. Will be back in Pittsburgh, PA in December. Thank you, thank you!! LOVE!!!"

With the help of our wonderful Nico Botha, Dawn is being transported to the airport today so that she can make the flight to her U.S. recovery site in Florida. She will likely be there for six weeks before returning to her home in Pittsburgh.

Hello, all. A quick update... Dawn continues to progress in the right direction. She has been released from the hospital into the health system's "step down" unit, Groenkloof Healthcare. There she will receive the additional physical therapy and other care she needs to travel back to the U.S. Fortunately, she is on target to take that step next week.
