Mona's Get Her Groove(y) Back Fund

As some of you may or may not know, Mona has been under the weather and unfortunately, has gone through some major surgeries this winter.   She has been out of work for a very long time because she was unsure what was wrong with her.  After numerous hospital visites without insurance, (she now has insurance) Mona has found out that she has degenerative disc disease and had to have a discectomy on her L4-5 discs over Christmas. The surgery was unsuccessful as she returned to the hospital a week after release. On New Year's Day she returned to the hospital and needed another MRI.  After many tests, it was discovered that she had to go see a neurosurgeon in Iowa City.  Once transported, the neurosurgeon determined that she had more bone and disc fragments and required a second L4-5 Laminectomy and Discectomy.  Since then, she has returned to Dubuqe and is undergoing intensive rehab and psychical therapy.   She will remain at the hospital for a few more weeks until she is cleared to go home.

Since she has been in and out of the hospital, Mona has not been able to work and will not be able to return to work until, at least, February.  Her bills are piling up and no income is coming in.  Mona has been using the support of her family and friends to help keep the kitties safe and a roof over their house.   Although, insurance can help, medical costs add up very quickly as well.

This is where you come in.....

 We are asking all of her friends and family for donations to help her once she is fully recovered.  No dontation is too high or low.  Every dollar counts.   Some expenses that she needs help with are:
Rent: $635 a month
Power: $80 a month
Phone: $108 a month
Child Support: $271 a month
Cat Supplies: around $75 a month
Insurance: $190 a month
This doesn't even begin to cover her medical bills that are not covered by insurance.  So, every dollar counts. 

Thank you for your support in helping Mona on her road to recovery!!  The kitties thank you too!  Meow!
