Support Lisa Montano

My best friend Lisa suffered a terrible injury earlier this year, an injury that has left her and the physicians confused as to how this even occurred. 
Lisa had finished work one afternoon and suddenly lost all vision in her eye.  In a matter of seconds, she was blind, scared and panicked as she made her way to an emergency eye doctor.  The doctor quickly informed her that the retina in her eye had completely detached and immediately scheduled surgery to make the repair,  in hopes she would re-gain eyesight.  Its been almost six months and Lisa has undergone three eye surgeries, with a fourth scheduled for January 2019. 
During this recovery, she has been unable to work or drive and after each surgery, is required to spend 22 hours a day face down for the retina to heal properly.  Not only is Lisa unable to work, she is unable to enjoy all of the things she loves in life- hiking, biking, running and spending time with her friends and family. 
Lisa has exhausted all options and avenues for any financial assistance through the State of Colorado (which they denied) and is struggling to cover not only her medical expenses, but also her day-to-day expenses like rent, utilities, groceries, etc.
Anyone that knows Lisa would not argue that she is the most caring and genuine person you could ever meet - Now its time for all of us to give back to her!
Lets help rid some of the financial stress that she has endured so she can focus on recovery and living life again.
