SOS–Saving Our Susan

“Susan Slotter has the eye of a visionary, the heart of a mystic, and the hand of an impeccable craftsman.  Her work embodies majesty and meaning; it is a healing force for anyone who experiences it.”  ~ Larry Dossey, MD, One Mind

Our friend Susan Slotter is perishing.  Your help is urgently needed now!  An extra-ordinary life is threatened.  

We, as a team of friends who have each known Susan from 15-40 years, are raising money for necessary medical expenses and rest for Susan to restore health and strength to work and engage in life again.

When a friend’s life force is slipping away, we cannot stand on the sidelines.  We go into life-saving mode.  See NotesFromTheChrysalis  for a current visual picture.

 "We walk by faith, not by sight."   2 Corinthians 5:7

Seven years ago, a catalytic event created a mind/body/spirit fracture, spiraling Susan into a whole life crisis.  What she hoped would be a year or two healing journey has stretched into six.  She has had to step further and further out of life, with life-threatening health issues, including traumatic brain injury, compounding and overwhelming her system.

All reserves have been exhausted at every level  – physical, mental, emotional, financial.  Complications with protocols in Spring 2018 contributed to a systemic state of emergency, as described in NotesFromTheChrysalis-Perfect Storm.  In this vulnerable and humbling time, we are asking for critical support for Susan to be able to regain strength and traction needed for healing.

Susan’s situation is dire and your financial help is invaluable.

Susan’s commitment to her healing process has been remarkable.  And, she has been undermined by lack of financial resources at every step.  The costs are extensive. Susan has only a few good hours a day to focus on tasks and navigate life in its most stripped down state.  She has no income or financial reserves.  Insurance does not cover most of the medical and integrative tests and procedures that are needed.

Funds received go directly to Susan to 1) help her navigate a constellation of serious health issues through combined allopathathic and integrative medicine, and 2) give her the time and rest necessary for protocols to be effective.  Goal:  Regaining strength and capacities to be able to work and engage in life again.

We imagine that Your Life has been touched by Susan.

Susan is not just an artist, she is a light in the world. The essence of her life is a healing spiritual journey.  Her dedication to that path impacts others through her being, her actions and her exquisite spiritual artistry.  Susan is motivated by service and contribution to others.  She consistently helps others in remarkable ways to get through challenging transitions, both in the moment and for years to come, even while in the middle of her own.

Susan is here to help preserve life.  We ask and thank you for your support to help preserve hers.

We are grateful Susan has made it this far – by the grace of God, her vigilance and dedication to healing,  and each and every gesture of support from so many healing practitioners, friends, family members, and even strangers.

It may be that for the first time in your life, you feel called to contribute whatever you can to a campaign like this.  We don’t have any time to lose. In the end, we all want to feel we have done the most we can to help.

Your positive comments, contributions large or small, and sharing this campaign with your friends and community can have life-saving impact.
