Help Dawn fund medical expenses

On February 27, 2014, Dawn Dunbar Tharp, mother of 4 and hairdresser at Wildfire Hair Co., suffered a Grand Mal Seizure. She has been extremely lucky as all tests have not shown any major problems. However, in April she suffered another seizure.
At this time Dawn continues to work full-time, but because of side effects of the seizures and the medication it has been very difficult for her to continue at the pace she was at. Her initial seizure came 3 days before her insurance came into effect, so all hospital and test costs were out of pocket.
Dr. Aguilar has been very good to Dawn, but because all tests are not showing what is happening, we have decided to go to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, as they are the leading hospital in the Nation for Seizures. We will have a consultation and possible further tests and treatment. She will continue to work with Dr. Aguilar through Johns Hopkins.
As we have tried very hard to continue her treatments it is becoming extremely hard financially on the family, and though we hate to burden others, we are asking for continued financial help for travel and medical expenses. Thank you so much for your continued support, you have all been wonderful throughout all of this.
