Deb Vangellow Recovery Fund

As you may know, Deb suffered a stroke at the club on the afternoon of Sunday January 12th
while doing what she loves the most - giving a lesson. Deb remains in ICU and will continue to
do so for an unknown time until the doctors have stopped the bleeding which caused this
event. Therefore, there is no specific timetable as to how long Deb may remain hospitalized and
when she can return to teaching and other activities. We will keep you apprised as her status

We have had lots of inquiries as to what we can do as a family to help our friend. On behalf of the
Riverbend family, we are created this GoFundMe account in her name to aid her with medical
and personal expenses.

We would ask that you consider helping Deb who has helped so many. Please feel free to forward this link to all those who knew and loved Deb, her family, friends, and colleagues literally span the globe. We know that many others will
want to help her as well.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for Deb and we ask that you continually keep them

Your consideration to this request is greatly appreciated.
