Dear Friends & Family,
Some of you may not be aware that my Aunt Diane Friedland suffered a stroke 5 weeks ago. She was in ICU/CCU at Countryside Mease Hosptial in Clearwater, Florida for 3 weeks. She was not able to speak, eat, see clearly or move her entire left side of her body. She was then released to a rehab facility to regain her strength, relearn how to walk and continue with speech therapy. Thankfully, she is able to speak more clearly and eat solid food, but she still remains unable to fully recover her vision , or walk on her own. The rehab facility has released her do to financial reasons.
My cousins- Michael, Scott and Brooke are doing everything in there power to be there mentally and physically for there mom. Its been very difficult for the entire family as they recently lost a loving husband and father, Robert Friedland in December of 2016. Keeping there strength as a family it is very difficult as she needs 24 hour care. With additional therapy required ahead of her, the doctors say Aunt Diane will have a long and expensive road to recovery.
Many of you have reached out asking how you can help my Aunt, so I thought this "Go Fund Me" site would be something that could help Aunt Diane focus on getting better without the financial strain and also show her how many of her friends and family members are wishing her well.
I will continue to update her progress on this site, so everyone can stay informed. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you all for your prayers and support.
