The Rytkonen family fundraiser

Terri Rytkonen suffered a stroke yesterday which caused her to veer into a parked car.  She was rushed to the hospital by ambulance where they have now found that the right side of Terri's brain has suffered massive, life threatening neurological damage leaving the left side of her body paralyzed.  She is in surgery right now to alleviate further damage from the blood clot.  Her brain is still swelling, but doctors are taking steps to prevent further damage. It's only been a few months since Terri received a new valve in her heart, and it is believed that insufficient prescribed amout of blood thinner allowed the clot to form.

Medically speaking, we dont know what to expect at this moment, but what we do know is that the Rytkonens will need money to make it through this tough time.  

We thank you for your discretion during this time but all the love and support is of course welcomed.
