Recently my mother retired from a great career from a wonderful company in NH, she had been talking about taking a well-deserved vacation out of the United States, perhaps to Rome, Italy. My father was stationed there for a few years as an airman. Judi took the next few months to research Italy and where my farther had journeyed through and stayed. She took the next steps to obtain her passport and book a trip through a tour group. For the few weeks all I heard was excitement and joy about going to Rome sightseeing and where my farther had once been. The day finally had arrived and she was off on a non-stop flight overseas.
She arrived and immediately started to enjoy her vacation. A few days went by and realized I haven’t received a phone call or text from her, to find out she had left her cell phone back in New Hampshire. On the day my youngest brother was supposed to pick her up at the airport, he received a phone call from the tour group and told him that Judi had suffered a stroke, and was in a hospital in Rome.
For the next few days my brothers and I were all stressed out not knowing how bad her condition was or how to contact her. After a week we finally got one of us over to Rome to see her and reassess the situation. To find out she is partly paralyzed and bedridden.
I am grateful my family has known some amazing people who have helped us thus far with everything that we needed, at this time we are trying to get her back to the US for the medical treatment she needs and deserves. I have researched ways to get her back and a few options were and I believe is the best way is to get a medevac back. This is why I am asking for any donation of any amount. This is our Christmas wish. If you cannot donate please like, share, and talk about this situation my family is going through.
Thank you and God Bless.
