Dawn Corona Recovery Fund

As you may or may not know, my wonderful mother Dawn Corona went into surgery for heart valve replacement March 16th. The surgery was successful but due to other unseen factors and a long time on the operating table my mother became ill. On monday morning(3/19) Dawns family was called to say goodbye because they did not think she could make it. By the grace of God a surgeon was willing to perform an exploratory surgery on her abdomen to determine what was happening.

The cause of my mothers decline in health was properly diagnosed and the doctors began working to fix her and return her to a normal condition. There are a few procedures and surgeries on the horizon we still have yet to conquer but these are hurdles we are glad to face because of the wonderful and profound beauty my Mom brings to all of our lives.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Dawns week long stay at the hospital has turned into something that we are not yet sure the length of. Our family has drawn close together so we can help our most precious Dawn. Because of the distance from home, it is getting increasingly harder to maintain a healthy lifestyle. We are in need of funds for groceries, lodging, and transportation uses. $14 a day parking is adding up quite fast, and a number of other issues are beginning to make themselves known.

My main concern is that we are able to be here for my mother, She has directly stated she did not want to be left alone at anytime. This is something we are doing our best to accomplish but there is some difficulty in being 57 miles away from Corona. Having a hotel that family members can rotate through to shower or nap is needed, having gas and parking money will be crucial moving forward as well. 

I wish I could explain all of the issues moving forward, but to be honest being at the hospital is our lives right now. We will be facing many more issues once they let us take our dear Dawn home for recovery. We need your help even before getting back to square one. 

Let me be clear in stating that my Mothers life is still hanging in the balance. God has protected her for 49 yrs and I think God will continue to do so for many more. We are trusting the doctors and surgeons to have blessed hands. I will Inform everyone of more details as I am given permission for them to be made public, so thank you for your patience and we are grateful for your support, I will be giving you updates as soon as I can
