Jody Elmer Medical Expense Fund

On Monday, December 11th, Jody woke up with a terrible headache. While she first thought it was a tension headache, her condition grew worse throughout the day, and she was taken by ambulance to Lancaster General Hospital. There, she was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm and transported by helicopter to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). 

Yesterday, Jody had a successful surgery to repair the aneurysm but will be in intensive care for at least 2 weeks while the doctors monitor her progress and help her recover. 

Your contributions will help pay for a place for Justin and other family members to stay close to HUP so that Jody has someone with her and near her at all times, travel to and from Philadelphia by train for other family members, and any expenses related to helping Jody heal, and Justin and Artie focus on her recovery.  These funds will make an immediate impact on the support surrounding Jody.  

We'll routinely post updates on Jody's condition at her CaringBridge site.  If we need other assistance (meals, help with Artie), we'll let you know through that site.  


Thank you so much for your prayers, kind words and thoughts, and offers of support! It means the world to Jody, Justin, and the family.
