Funding for Ave's Recovery

Many of you know my mom suffered three strokes at the beginning of September. After the strokes, she was determined to get her old self back, as she was working hard at the convalescent home, by walking, talking and just doing many of the things we take for granted in our everyday lives. Like many stroke patients, the early days of their struggle is evident in their limited abilities.

And just when it seemed like she was on the road to a speedy recovery, she was unfortuately rushed back to the Intensive Care Unit at Orange Coast Memorial Hospital for a blood transfusion due to internal bleeding.

Now, I'm asking for help with love.

We are struggling with paying her medical bills, on top of paying our everyday living expenses. We do not know how long her insurance will cover her stay at the next rehab center they will place her in, and we have already been informed that her insurance will not cover her at home care. As result of this insurmoutable debt, we're reaching out to all of you to help raise  money to secure a safe place for my mom to gain her strength again.

We appreciate even the smallest of donations, as anything and everything will help, and even if you are only able to lend a kind thought, well wishes and prayers -- that is more than enough. Lastly, we want to thank you all so much for the love and support -- from my family to yours.
