Denise Matera, a flight attendant with 16 years experience, was working a flight when suddenly things didn’t smell right. Then, she and her crew became sick, and were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Denise was in the hospital for a week, and is still ill. Among her symptoms are nausea, chronic headache, confusion, body aches, and most devastating, an inability to speak clearly.
She wants to heal and get back to work as soon as possible because she LOVES her job! This fund is being created to help Denise with her bills and medical expenses as she isn’t currently able to do the job misses so much.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help ease her financial burden. If she receives over this amount, and her medical expenses are covered, she would like to pay-it-forward and help another flight attendant that’s going through a similar experience.
On behalf of Denise, her family and close friends, we appreciate the outpouring of love and support she has received in the last weeks. Denise is strong and ready to fight, and she’s looking forward to getting back to the job that makes her so happy.
