Maranda's Battle w/Lung Collapse

This is Maranda, an extremely intelligent, charismatic, and beautiful young woman who had planned on attending law school this fall.  On a chilly winter afternoon back in February 2018, Maranda left work early to visit a walk in clinic as she was experiencing shortness of breath.  The nurse explained that her symptoms were those of lung collapse and she was immediately transported to her local hospital. 

Upon arrival, she was admitted and the first of countless chest tubes was placed.  Since that day, Maranda has had multiple major lung surgeries including the removal of a portion of her lung.  She’s also had numerous painful procedures that work to keep her lung inflated. 

Currently she is in a hospital in Boston, with yet another chest tube and needs our help.  

Maranda is a homeowner and is only receiving a portion of her previous salary since she has been on leave from her employer.  It is uncertain when she will be able to return to her position at work.  

All of her savings have gone to keeping up with her medical bills along with her mortgage and necessary expenses.  Any amount that you donate will be greatly appreciated and welcomed. 

Thank you.
