Help Our Amazing Mom

Our mom Shelly is the sweetest person we know. She has always put the care of others above her own needs which is why she went into the medical field. Whether she was buying gifts for people who had nothing on the holidays, volunteering during health events for the less fortunate, helping car accident victims until medical help arrived, or donating over a gallon of blood to the local hospital she was always our superhero growing up.

Her selflessness and dedication to her family, friends, and patients often times left our mom without money or care for herself, but you would never hear her complain.

For the past 28 years, our mom has dealt with Type 1 diabetes that she developed during pregnancy. After losing her loving father to complications with a quadruple bypass surgery, she developed depression and anxiety. However, she continued to push through her struggles to raise us and help make our high school experiences memorable. 

Three years ago, our dad died which caused our mom to have a heart attack. Since then, we'd noticed severe changes in her health. Her memory and cognitive processing were worsening. Two weeks ago, she was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis). Before we could even begin to understand MS, she began developing terrible headaches that could not be treated or diagnosed.

Now, our mom is in the Neuro-ICU after having a stroke. After years of caring for others and putting others' needs first, she is paying the price with her health. Her financial situation is in trouble as she has not been able to work while struggling with these health issues. 

We need your help in raising money for our mom's medical expenses while she is in ICU and afterward to ensure the best medical diagnoses and regiments to make sure she is healthy. Let's have other people care for her while she recovers. Help our selfless mom have the life she deserves. 

(We understand that not everyone can give financially, so we are also requesting any free help or resources for managing and treating diabetes, MS, stroke aftercare, and memory rehab.)

Thank you,
Kaitlyn and Ashley
(Shelly's daughters)
