After being diagnosed with a blood clot in her neck, Hughes was admitted into Neuro ICU for treatment. She will remain in ICU for approximately a week, as she is at a high risk for a stroke, and will most likely remain in the hospital for a significant time period depending on her response to treatment. Right now, it is expected that she will be out of work and recovering for at least 6 to 8 weeks. This time out of work, combined with the medical expenses, will put a major financial strain on her and her family, including her two small children. As she goes through this extremely difficult time, please consider donating in order to help alleviate some small aspect of the stress involved.
