Raisa's Medical Fund

My name is Laura Theis.  I am very good friends with the Ivanov and Hryshanovich family.  Raisa Hryshanovich and her husband came to this country from Belarus four years ago to help raise their grandson, Adrien, and to be with their daughter Olga and her husband Alex.

Raisa suffered a brain aneurysm and has been in the hospital for over a month.   In order for Raisa to have health insurance she has to be in the country for five years.

Raisa's outcome is very promising.  Her short-term memory has been affected but she is slowly walking and talking.  She is about to be released from the hospital and the doctors recommend that going for therapy would help her significantly.

This is where your generosity comes in!  Olga was able to obtain some charity care for the hospital bills; however, the therapy does not fall under that umbrella.

Olga, Alex and her father are going to use what savings they have to help pay for a few weeks of therapy for Raisa, but she needs at least a month per the doctor's recommendation.

This family has done everything the right way in life and has worked hard here in America to make a new life for themselves.  Please find it in your hearts to donate what you can... $5.00, $10.00 or more to get Raisa the therapy she needs to return back to health.

Thank you very much!
