Alison McGough Family Support Fund

$26,992 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 289 people in 13 months
Created November 5, 2017
Alison McGough was enjoying her weekend doing what she loved most... spending time with her family at their favorite place. Alison and Brooklyn, her beloved daughter, were enjoying the day on the ATV when tragedy struck. Brooklyn was life-flighted to USA Hospital where she successfully underwent surgery. Alison, however, did not survive.

As I write tonight, we are hopeful Brooklyn will be discharged in the next few days and return home. 
The expense of the life flight are estimated to be approximately $40,000 and are not covered by insurance, leaving an even larger burden on this precious family. To help ease a small part of the effects of this tragedy, we have started this campaign for Alison's family - her husband of 23 years, Steven, her daughter Brooklyn and her son Mason.  

Alison dedicated her life to serving others and selflessly cared for her family, friends and colleagues. Her smile was contagious and she brought joy into everyone's heart simply by entering a room. 

Please consider a donation to assist in caring for Alison's family as she cared for so many during her time with us.

Thank you,

What an incredible response of love and generosity we have received for Alison's family! Alison touched so many lives in such a precious way and we are all better people for having known her! I had the honor of working beside Alison at The Blake at Malbis. For 5 years, Alison was the Director of Activities at The Blake where she directly impacted the lives of our residents and their families. She was a confidant, a shoulder, a friend, a needed laugh, a bad joke and more than anything, she LOVED our residents.

It is in respect for this love she had for The Blake and our residents I began this page. Truly the single most important people on earth to Alison were her family. Her husband, Steven and her dear children Brooklyn & Mason were the sparkle in Alison's eyes and the warmth in her heart. She beamed just speaking of them.

Medical expenses for the family are overwhelming as Brooklyn was air-lifted to USA on that tragic day for her successful surgeries. There are more medical expenses incurred even today. The Air-Lift alone is not covered by insurance and totals $40,000. This fund is set up to help pay for the medical expenses incurred and, if we are fortunate enough to raise donations even more, those expenses to come for Brooklyn.

Thank you for giving to the Alison McGough Family Support Fund. As we approach Christmas, I ask that you remember the McGough family in your prayers.

Merry Christmas!
