My name is Valerie and I am fundraising to help my mother-in-law, Denise. Saturday, September 24, she unfortunately had two strokes while at work. She was taken to the hospital via ambulance, where they found a blood clot blocking the artery that allows blood flow to her brain. They attempted surgery to remove the clot, but ultimately could not due to how constricted her arteries are. She is on medication to help this, but unfortunately the clot cannot be removed.
Of the two strokes she had, one could potentially cause permanent damage to her vision, among other things. She will need to go through rehabilitation to correct the damage this has caused. The doctors say she could potentially make a "tremendous" recovery, at 95% of her previous abilities.
Denise is currently still in the hospital.
As this was extremely unexpected, without medical insurance and a portion of the household income gone, we are raising funds to help cover medical cost, as well as to help cover a portion of household costs during this time.
Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
