Benefit for Sarah

Let me tell you a little about Sarah.  She is a 39 year old graduate of East Hampton High School and a single mother to a 7 year old boy, Wyatt. She has been personal trainer at Body Tech since 2001 and also works at Indian Wells Tavern three nights a week to make ends meet.  Sarah was diagnosed with Diverticulitis at the young age of 24 where she underwent surgery to remove part of her intestines. She was informed then that there would be complications down the road. Well, down the road has come and Sarah has been out of work for the last two months. On top of her diverticulitis causing difficulties, she contracted C-Diff from the treatment. Sarah is hoping that if she can stay out of the hospital and keep the diverticulitis calm she will be able to have an uncomplicated surgery in the next month to correct her diverticulitis.  If she can not she will have to have an invasive procedure and will be out of work for many months.  All this time off,  in and out of hospitals, has set her back financially more than she was already raising a child on her own.   We appreciate anything you can do to help Sarah out during this difficult time. 

There will be a fundraiser on Thursday, October 4th at The Stephen Talkhouse.  We are asking local businesses to consider donating items for a raffle.
