Ruthann had a serious medical crisis in the spring of 2018, and was hospitalized overnight. It was necessary for her to seek further answers through providers in the Anchorage area, as her health has continued to deteriorate. While she is grateful for her new, lower stress job, the health care coverage does not begin until September. Gratefully, Ruthann has received a diagnosis that helps to clarify a lot of her struggles. She has an autoimmune disorder called Hashimoto Disease. The blood work and doctor's visit were extremely necessary but expensive. We know that Ruthann has blessed so many people with her giving heart, and we'd like to give friends a chance to lift her load during this time.
