Help I-Yung with medical costs

Last Wednesday, our friend I-Yung suffered an injury to her knee while she was preparing to compete at the Pan-American championships and fulfill her dream to represent Gracie Barra Downers Grove. This injury requires an expensive surgery and physical therapy. I-Yung is the heart of the academy, always helping others and incredibly passionate about jiu jitsu. We know she would move Heaven and earth to help any one of us; it's time for us to do the same for her. Please contribute to help I-Yung with her medical expenses as well as to help compensate the time she will have to be off of work and away from the academy. No amount of money can truly compensate her for being away from the mats and the people she loves so much, but if we unite as a family and as a team we can at least alleviate her financial burden.
