Margaret's Medical Marathon Fund

Dear family, friends and colleagues,

As many of you know, our sister, Margaret Boyd, suffered an intracerebral hemorrhagic stroke (also known as ICH stroke or deep brain stroke) and is being treated at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, MD.  She is currently in the SICU where she will be for at least 2 weeks.  Margaret is strong so we have every hope she will survive this, but recovery is sure to be emotionally and physically taxing, not only for Maggie, but for Kurt and Elijah, too.

While our priority is getting Maggie on the road to recovery, we are preparing ourselves for the exponentially high hospital costs - her out of pocket expenses will be very high. We all feel fairly helpless right now as the minutes tick by, hoping beyond hope that we see the light in her eyes sooner than later. While we wait, we hope to help ease the impending financial burden so Kurt and Elijah can focus on Maggie’s healing. 

We appreciate the significance of this ask - most people are working to make ends meet. If right now isn’t a good time to donate, we understand completely. But there is no amount too small - we will be deeply thankful for any gift.  

Please keep Maggie in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you very much for any amount you might contribute. 

With profound gratitude on behalf of our family,
Lea Mauceri & Chris Hughes

P.S.  I am required under the gofundme terms and conditions to inform you that I will be accepting the donations on behalf of the family and either depositing the money in my account and actually paying the bills or deposit it into their account and pay them from there.
