On September 27, 2022 a bright light in this world went out. Laura was one of the most kindest, caring people you could ever meet, and by far the strongest person I have ever known. She fought both IBD and EDS for several years but her positivity, and strength to fight never wavered.
Together Laura and her mom LuAnn were the best team. They were always there to support each other in Laura's ongoing health challenges and increasing complications. However, they were also the first to offer a word of advice or shoulder of support to anyone else experiencing a chronic illness. For the last several years LuAnns sole job has been Laura’s caretaker. Coordinating appointments with specialists, driving her to doctors' visits, maintaining medication schedules and keeping Laura as comfortable as possible.
We have created this go fund me to help with the sudden unexpected funeral costs but mostly to offer LuAnn the proper time to grieve Laura’s passing. The donations provided will help LuAnn pay their household expenses while figuring out future employment. Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated and helpful.
