Update 9/18/18******
Thank you for all your donations and support!!  According to Cheryl's husband, they now have medicaid and most of the medical bills should be covered.  We are no longer accepting donations to the Cheryl A. Monroe Special Trust.  The existing trust funds will continue to be used to supplement Cheryl's health and medical needs.  Please continue to pray for Cheryl and her recovery.****

Cheryl Monroe suffered a brain aneurysm August 8th after losing her brother to Cancer on August 7th. She was flown to Jefferson Hospital in Philly where she is currently in the ICU undergoing treatment. Cheryl unfortunately did not have insurance and will be unable to work for quite some time. She has been a well-loved waitress at Ocean View Family Restaurant for over 24 years.  

Michelle Reynolds, a friend of Cheryl's, that lives in Clarksville, started this GoFundMe page.  As of 8/16 all money raised will go to the Cheryl A. Monroe Special Trust which has been established for the sole purpose of supplementing Cheryl's needs, medical expenses, ongoing therapy and enabling her to live as independently as possible.  All donations received from this page, proceeds from Fundraisers, and cash from the various Collection Jars will be put into the trust.

Thanks to you we hit our initial goal of $10,000 and will gratefully continue to fundraise and build a fund that will help Cheryl over the course of her long road to recovery. Please keep praying for Cheryl’s continued recovery!

She is finally home!!

I am happy to report that Cheryl is home and re-acclimating! She has been out exercising and learning how to maneuver with depth perception loss. Her short term memory is improving and she will be following up with the hospital next week.

I want to thank everyone that has donated and that helped us raise just over $7,600 at our fundraiser this past Sunday.

Please continue to pray for Cheryl's recovery and for her to be able to seamlessly setup follow-up care.

Cheryl was moved to the Acute Rehab at Jefferson hospital and has been going 3 - 4 times a day for PT. Physically you can see such a big difference in how she was a few weeks ago. She is feeding herself now and sitting up for much longer periods of time out of bed. Still receiving OT and Speech, with a focus on her short term memory which is still struggling.

I invite you to drop of Get Well cards at the Ocean View Family Restaurant and post your well wishes on any of our sites.

Thank you for all the prayers and support for Cheryl! She has been seeing your posts, comments, prayers and donations and said, "Awwww, thank you so much!"

So excited! Cheryl was moved from the ICU to a step down unit on Sunday afternoon and is now waiting for a bed to open up in the Acute Rehab Unit at Jefferson Hospital. She was able to walk assisted in her room and now has a roommate. Less lethargy and more talking. She is a lot more aware, but still having short term memory challenges. Thank you so much for the prayers and donations!!
