Mama Miriam

We appreciate everyone who has supported the family during this troubling time with patience, prayers, and acts of kindness. Many of you have asked how you could help my mom. We are humbled to know so many of you care and would like to help. As I'm sure, many of you have assumed. PTO's have been maxed out, jobs left, FMLA used, and some jobs lost in this journey. Seven months of having a loved one in ICU collides with the reality of the world, careers, bill, etc. 

How will these donations be used: 

1. Medical bills 
2. Costs for relocating to Los Angeles for my Father and brother
3. Parking fees
