Help Marisa while she recovers!

31934176_1533585459426704_r.jpegOn July 19th, 2018, Marisa woke up with some pretty intense pain in her back and neck, along with a severe migraine. She was driven to the hospital by her best friend where they told Marisa that she had Bacterial Meningitis. After a good stay in the hospital with antibiotics, family flying in to be with her, and resting at home, symptoms progressed and Marisa found herself once in the again in the hospital not even a week later. 

Doctors were absolutely baffled about why Marisa seemed to still have meningitis, and why it had only become worse. After an MRI, they found a tumor on Marisa spine which explained why she was having a hard time healing, and scheduled her for surgery to have the tumor removed. 

Thankfully, Marisa is in recovery from surgery and doing well, returning to her typical hilarious self as she recovers. But it will be a long road, and Marisa won't be able to return to work (working as a social worker in Portland, Oregon) until she is fully capable and healed. 

If you have some cash to spare, consider helping Marisa out. Her role in our community is priceless, and she's spent a good portion of her adulthood advocating for those that need help also. 

Your donations will help cover Marisa's living costs and some medical expense. She underwent surgery to have her gallbladder removed in February costing her most of her paid time off from work. 

Thank you so much!
