Ash and I met about 13 years ago when we both started working at Cracker Barrel. We've never been too far apart since and are currently even roommates and can both be found slangin' beers at the Lumberyard Brewing Co.
The other morning Ashley wandered out of her room and she wasn't quite herself. Sometime during the night, my 33 year old friend suffered a stroke, weakening the left side of her body and damaging her brain.
After over a week in the hospital she is now transfering to a physical training rehab where she'll have to relearn how to do many things we take for granted.
As we all know, life is expensive and it doesn't stop or slow down for anything.
Ashley has a long road of recovery ahead. A road that could be a bit smoother if all she had to worry about was healing and gaining her strength. Rent, car payments, meals, basic everyday necessities add up everyday.
Ashley has been like a sister to me. Anyone that knows her knows that she'd do anything for you. She's the most selfless, fun, loving, (and fun-loving), hard working, beautiful person I know. Please help her and her family, so that she can return to the life she built for herself.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for anything that you can give.
Thank you for even sharing her story, if that is all you can do for now.
