Bernadette Spencer

$5,445 of $2,600 goal

Raised by 84 people in 7 months
Created June 20, 2018
(The goal listed here is basically arbitrary and is by no means a do-or-die number; it's an estimate of a month of our rent and utilities. Anything you feel comfortable donating will be thoroughly appreciated.)

On June 18, 2018, Bernadette was hit by a vehicle while riding her bicycle in St. Paul. Luckily, she seems to have escaped any major injuries; unluckily, she racked up a lot of minor ones and is looking at an extended hospital stay, between recovering in the ICU and healing/rehabbing. We both have family in the area, so most of our immediate needs are being met, but if you're looking for a way to help we can definitely use assistance in staying on top of our ordinary living expenses without B's income. Any donation here will be put to that purpose (rent, utilities, feeding the cats).

Thank you so much for thinking of us; your support means the world to us. Visit B's Caring Bridge page at https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/bernadettespencer for general updates on her health.

Love, Rob and Bernadette

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much to all of you who have donated; we really appreciate your generosity in our time of need. Thanks especially, and holy moly, to the anonymous donor who pushed us all the way to my arbitrarily-chosen first goal of $1300! I don't even know what to say.

As you can see, I've upped the goal to roughly a second month of expenses. At this point there's still no way to tell how long Bernadette's recovery and rehab will take, so any further financial security this can provide us helps us plan for all possibilities.

Also, to comply with GoFundMe's regulations, I should clarify that I, Rob Carson, will be withdrawing the money and using it to pay for our rent, utilities, and other living expenses. Neither they or I want you to think anything untoward is happening here.

We love you all, and thank you all again, so much.

Rob + B
