Like most small businesses owners, she does not have a "rainy day" fund to help support her time off from being able to run her business. She works a majority of the staff hours herself and only supplements with a few part-time employees and the help of her parents Steve and Rita. Because she will need to take time off to recuperate, she will need to utilize many more staff hours than she can afford.
There is also a concern of whether the motor vehiclist(s) that hit her, has insurance to cover her ambulance ride, hospital stay and continued medical care.
Theresa has been a staple in this community from her longstanding coffee shop The Bean Juice, volunteer hours that she donates to numberous organizations and charities yearly and as a resident of La Crosse for over 2 decades.
And as I know she would NEVER ask herself, I ask on her behalf so that she can tend to what is the most important thing... and that is recovery.
You never think that something like shoveling the sidewalk could result in an accident of this magnitude. We are so greatful that she is alive and will make a recovery. And we want nothing more than to ease the burden that this situation has and will continue to cause.
Thank you for your consideration and donation!
