A relief fund for two teenage boys

Most of us know and love the lovely lady on the left hand side of this picture as Janice Brown. Some of you might have known her since childhood, some might know her through parents at her sons school, some might know her as Aunt Janice, some might know her as a neighbor, and most importantly, some might know her as Mom. She is one of the most selfless people I know and would do anything for anyone even if she didn't totally agree with it. We all love her for many different reasons. But this time, she needs us (for once)

A couple weeks ago, she went in for a simple knee replacement, and had some complications due to a rare blood clotting disorder. She was sent to rehab too soon, and was sent back to the hospital because of those complications not even 24 hours out. The next morning, it was decided that she go home and wasn't even in the doorway, and she passed out. Her wonderful friend who was going to stay with her and help her out at home preformed CPR for 45 minutes with the help of her neighbor who is an EMT. She was taken back to the hosptial and has been there ever since.  She is unresponsive and basiclly needs all the prayers she can get. Her 19 year old son got the news and immedieatley made his way back home from the Air Force, and her 17 year old son has not left her side since. She has an amazing support system of friends and family, the whole ICU waiting room was filled with people, all for her. Truely amazing to see how much she is loved. 

No matter what happens, I am positive this money will be greatly appreciated, and a huge weight lifted. Please don't feel obligated to donate, and only donate what you can. Your throughts and prayers are really whats important right now. We need all the positive thoughts and vibes as we can get. Thank you for reading, thank you for your donations, and most importantly, thank you for your prayers!
