** December 14th update!!**
- The ramps on the back of the house have been completed! THANK YOU, ALL!!
- The accessible bathroom cabinets are going in and look good; a few bars on the wall, the mirror up, and a countertop in and the bathroom will be done! THANK YOU!!
Thank you to everyone who has donated! We've noticed that some people have had terrible trouble with the PayPal interface on this site. If you would prefer to send a cheque directly to Chloe & Aruna, their address is 2408 - 9 Ave. NW, Calgary AB, Canada, T2N 1E7. Thank you!!
Living with a rare type of myesthenia gravis, Chloe was wheelchair-bound for fifteen years, paralysed. She is going in for a double knee replacement, a surgery and post-op recovery which might again render her paralysed. We've started this campaign to raise money to cover the cost of the hospital bed Chloe needs to recover and continue living at home.
Chloe is an important author, researcher, thinker, and speaker on medical ethics and issues relating to disability, diagnostic protocols, and patient autonomy. She is a community leader, a wife and mother and mentor, and a hilariously willful, stubborn, and bullheaded individual. And a fabulous friend.
There are a number of other crucial projects to help Chloe stay in her home with her family. We are hoping, really, to raise $35K. We want to clear the family's immediate debts associated with health care costs, and help finish basic household modifications so that Chloe can use her wheelchair throughout their house. But let's start with the hospital bed. We need $6000.
Thank you, so much, for helping.
