Please help us rescue a rescuer

Our dear friend and local Country Pet Groomers owner, Coleen Howell along with her staff, who have been serving the Hollister community by lovingly grooming our pets for the past 26 years has unfortunately fallen very ill. 
Coleen's very serious health issues include a major hip replacement surgery and soon to be followed by a bone marrow transplant.  
As you can imagine,  this has resulted in substantial distress due to insurmountable medical expenses and her inability to return to work any time in the near future.
 Sadly, these health issues have displaced Colleen from her own home and also required that she give up her beloved dog, Aria, so she can focus on getting back to good health. We are happy to say that Aria has been rehomed to a loving family.
In addition to all that Coleen Howell and her staff have given to our community, they have also been vital supporters and sponsors of our non-profit Animal Rescue Adoption Shelter, Pet Friends, she has 100% supported our cause and most importantly graciously cared for our animals for many years by providing complimentary grooming services to our rescue dogs whenever needed at no cost to Pet Friends so that they can be rehabilitated and ultimately adopted.
Since Colleen is not one to ask for help, Pet Friends would like to do so on her behalf.  Pet Friends has created this GoFundMe page so we can show our support to her and her family. 
We ask the Community to surround Colleen with love, give what they can and offer healing thoughts to her on her journey to a healthy recovery. We thank you in advance for your support. 
If you have questions please contact Pet Friends at [phone redacted].
