Help Carolyn get off/on her feet!

Carolyn Marie Monroe, the badass hard worker, bike rider, actor, student, massage therapist, and lovely human is in need.  She has been in great physical pain for quite some time and discovered that she needs surgery on her foot.  (This is her third surgery on this leg and if you've ever been in this kind of situation, you know how deeply discouraging this kind of thing can be.) She has recently returned to school at UW and has been holding down a serving job (as well as maintaining her massage practice) , not to mention moving, taking aerial classes, and generally kicking butt on Seattle's stages.  She is one of the hardest working, independent, and most determined human beings I know... and she needs our help right now.  

Carolyn's work is very physical and in order to undergo this necessary surgery, she is going to have to give up her serving job, pursue no acting work, and probably not do any massage work.  She will have no way to bring in an income and is worried about food, rent, general bills, and very possibly having to give up school.  Let's band together and give her the boost she needs to feel like she can get this surgery, heal properly, and continue to pursue her schooling.  $7,800 will cover the cost of her surgery and general bills.  

Let's help her get off her feet for a while so that she can eventually get back on her feet--pain free-- and back into life!
