Help with Cheryl Graham's recovery

Cheryl Graham has been our beloved friend and dedicated employee for 12 years. The Monday before Christmas, Cheryl suffered a stroke at work. We called 911 and she was immediately transported to the ER at our local hospital (Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, CHOMP). We are asking for your help and support to help pay the bills that will soon arrive.

In Cheryl's eyes, our customers come first. No matter what kind of day she is having, she always has something nice to say to them - a simple smile, a hug (pre-Covid), a compliment, while fixing their favorite drink. She knows many customers on a first name basis. We ALL love her.

A loyal customer writes: "Parker-Lusseau, Monterey, has been our neighborhood bakery & patisserie for years. Not only do they have THE best quiches, croissants and baked goodies, their staff is amazing, led by Cheryl Graham. There has never been a visit when I have not been greeted with genuine hospitality and joy - commodities not always seen in this Covid-era. I learned that Cheryl has had a serious medical emergency and am relieved and grateful that owners Anne and Yann are providing us with a way of helping Cheryl."


UPDATE on Thursday, December 31st 2020:
Wonderful news! Cheryl has been approved to move into Monterey Community Hospital's Acute Rehab center! This means she'll be able to go through rehab, locally. Her first rehabilitation session is underway, today. Cheryl's partner, Richard, will now be able to visit Cheryl  (separated by a window due to Covid protocols).

We hear that with Cheryl's move to the Acute Rehab center, she lost her view of her beloved Monterey Pines. If you'd like to send something cheery, the hospital is receiving florist deliveries. 

Please be mindful that Cheryl is unable to take calls.
