For some of us, Madeline Malo is a friend, for some, she is an employee, past or present, for a few she is a mother, and for many, she is a caretaker. Anyone who has had the privilege of getting to know Madeline, or Maddy, as she is affectionately referred to, see's first hand how much she touches the lives of those around her.
Maddy is a single mom who has raised 4 children, one of whom just joined the army and will be stationed in Iraq in less than a month. Besides for being a mother, she is also a full-time caretaker to her own Mother, who has suffered from different medical ailments for several years. While taking care of everyone around her, Maddy has worked full time as a title manager for both the RMV, local auto auctions, and a finance company, over the last 25 years.
This past Friday morning, Madeline suffered a massive heart attack. She actually died on her living room floor, and while her Mother and teenage daughter looked on, had to be resuscitated by the paramedics.
Maddy received immediate emergency surgery at Beverly Hospital, where she stayed for several days.
Maddy is the sole provider for her household. She will now be out of work until she is cleared by the doctors to return. Besides for the obvious bills, rent, utilities, food, etc, there are now mounting medical bills that must be dealt with. Surgery, hospital stay, ambulance, monthly medications, and physical therapy. All of these expenses are immediate.
Maddy has helped many of us over the years. If you are a local car dealer, I am willing to bet she helped you out with more than a few titles. It is time we all lend a hand to help her the way she has helped all of us. Please be as generous as you can be in helping this hard working single mom when she needs it most.
