Freedom for Marcia

I am writing this on behalf of my dear friend Mary Beth because emotionally she is not able to cope.

we are raising funds to help with legal costs to free her wife who was removed from the home forcibly in just her underwear, on a temporary guardianship  paper. The judge was not told the full story, and we have a fight to return Marcia, a US Navy Vet rightfully to her wife Mary.

Marcia served in the Navy from 1983 to August 1998  and served her country proudly.
in 2017 sadly Marcia had a complex stroke, that has sadly left her with dementia and seizures. She takes a lot of medications some issued by the VA and some for both seizures and dementia by an outside neurologist. When Marcia was taken by police officers from her marital home they left behind all her medications, and these medications are her life savers. 
While she was being removed in her underwear Mary her wife was pleading with officers to allow her to get her dressed. But instead they removed her in a thin T shirt and underwear.
Marcia did not want to leave, and even neighbours heard her yelling that she wanted to stay with her wife Mary.

Now Mary has a battle on her hands that she needs to fulfil to bring her wife home and away from family that had played no part in Marcias  healing for the past two years. But who now want to suddenly remove her from a stable loving home, where she is cared for round the clock, to a nursing home, that almost killed her the last time she was there.
legal cases are costly and as the wife of a veteran, Mary just about manages to get by every month on the small amount paid to them.
And now as a community we need to find it in our hearts to help to donate to fund a lawyer who specialises in family law.
Please donate what you can to bring this couple  together again.
