Love for Laura

Yesterday, our amazing cake-maker-in-chief Laura left for her first vacation in many months; this morning she is at the bedside of her sweet husband Avery.   They were standing outside their vehicle on the first day of a 5 day road trip when he was struck by a car (who then fled the scene).    Avery is awake and talking but he's been badly injured and is currently in surgery.

Those of you who know Laura personally understand how wonderful she is.  You may also know the last year has been a challenging one, and this won't be her first round of serious care-giving for a family member.

You may also just know her through her work at Rawdacious, as she is the primary maker of all the cakes you've been enjoying the last couple of years.  She is frankly better and more efficient at the job than I've ever been and I'd be lost without her. 

I'm asking the community to support her through this traumatic episode.  To be clear this is a fundraiser to help Laura deal with missed work, and all the expenses related to life with an incapacitated life partner.  Medical expense help will be raised elsewhere.  

I appreciate any support you are able to give, sharing this page is equally valuable.  Thank you!!!!
