Dawn's Recovery Fund

As many of you know, our good friend, Dawn Bateman, suffered a stroke back on 3/14/2017.  The stroke has left her with diminished communication capabilities (written and verbal).  As a result, she has been unable to return to work since then, since communication is vital to her employment.  It also looks like she will be unable to return to work for another 3-6 months while she continues speech therapy.  Meanwhile, living expenses continue and medical bills roll in while Dawn is without income.  

As her family, friends, and Hearties community, we'd love to support Dawn in this way, so she can spend her time focused on her speech recovery, as opposed to having to worry about her bills. 

Will you consider contributing to help get Dawn through this temporary lack of income and help with living expenses and medical bills?  Anything you can give will help!  Thank you!
