Lyssie's Medical Fund

Hi Everyone,

I have created this page to try and help out one of Little Marvels' beloved teachers, Ms. Lyssie Garrison as she deals with a difficult health crisis.

As many of you may know, earlier this Summer Lyssie suffered from a stroke, which landed her in the hospital for quite some time. What some of you may not know is that Lyssie has had some pretty bad luck with her health for quite some time, and unfortunately is back in the hospital again.

Understandably, the numerous hospital visits and medical care needed are a major financial stress on Lyssie.

Lyssie is one of the strongest women I have had the pleasure of knowing. Despite her rotten luck with her health, you would never know about her struggles from speaking to her. She is always smiling and has the most positive out look on life. Every single day she gives her all for not just the children in her classroom, but for all the children, parents, and fellow co-workers at Little Marvels. If you've ever had the pleasure of talking to or working with Lyssie, you know this!

Any donation you can make will go directly to Lyssie's medical bills and life expenses.

Lyssie didn't ask for help or anything from anyone, but I wanted to ask for her. Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any donation you are able to make in this difficult time. As I mentioned, she is the most wonderful teacher, friend, and person and it breaks my heart that she is is going through such a difficult and scary time.
