"Service is our rent for living" is Patty's lifelong mantra. Everyday she pours out her heart for others, by inspiring, loving, mentoring, educating. Saying Patty has a big heart is like saying the ocean has a lot of water or that we need air to breathe.

Her heart is why we started this campaign. Unexpectedly, over the last several months her big heart has faltered. She's been hospitalized, endured heart treatments, has been implanted with an ICD, and is on the road to recovery. But, heart medication, an ICD, physical therapy, these each cost money . As many of us know firsthand, insurance doesn't ever cover everything. There is a drip, drip, drip of expenses. It takes a toll.

As her sisters, brothers, friends, teachers, students, mentees, mentors, we can do something that will show our support, love, and that we admire her heart. That's why we put together this campaign to raise $10K over the next few weeks (by December 1st). This is such a simple act to show that we will fight with her. We will fight for her heart.

Dear friends, sisters, brothers, students, mentees, students, mentors, coaches, and all those that will forever love Patty -- as you know, our Warrior, immensely brave, transitioned from life to death at 2:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, and I believe, now is resting and celebrating a life-done-enormously-right in heaven.

The family plans to use the funds that were not used by Patty while she was living for expenses related to her homegoing celebration, which will be used to honor her life and the immense impact she has had on us all. If you would prefer that any funds you contributed NOT be used for this purpose, please contact me through Facebook (messenger) over the next 24 hours. Thanks for your support of Dr. Patty's incredible heart!
