Artist warrior down, spinal fusion needed.

2 days before Christmas, my friend Marji Rawson was told that she needs to have immediate back surgery.  A vertebra has shifted forward in her lower lumbar and has no discs, squishing the spinal cord. The diagnosis is called Advanced Spondylolisthesis. 

Marji is a full time artist of 28 years. Her lifeblood is show by show. Her winter/spring art shows are cancelled. She can not even make art while recovering. Panic mode button is pressed!

With the surgery happening mid January Marji's life just got shut down for the next 6 months. I am asking for help in a big way to let Marji recover safely without stress.

The breakdown of costs will cover: 2020 deductible, hospital bills & general monthly living expenses (mortgage, utilities, food, gas.)

Please help in any way that you can. Marji is an outstanding artist. We need her back working & making beautiful art.

Many Thanks,
Jessica Joy
