Mary and David

Hi all.  I'm writing to ask for help for Mary and David.  They had a pretty big health scare this past week and it is going to take some time for Mary to fully get back on her feet.  Mary was 24 weeks along in her pregnancy when her and David found out they lost their little one. If that wasn't traumatic enough we came very close to losing Mary too.  
On Tuesday Mary went into the hospital to have a surgical procedure to clear the pregnancy from her body. There were complications and things did not go as planned. Mary had a complication called DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation). This is a pretty rare blood clotting condition that can be fatal and affects the ability for the blood to clot.  As Mary had just had a surgical procedure when this presented it became serious very fast. The doctors said it had to do with her body's reaction to the miscarriage and it is unknown the exact reason this happens, but it is linked to second trimester miscarriages. 
Mary received emergent treatment where they had to call a code on her, give her massive blood transfusions and rush her into another procedure to stop the bleeding. They were unable to fully put her out for  the second procedure due to her blood pressure being so low, but she is an amazingly strong woman and trucked through it.  
Mary then spend some time in the ICU continuing to get transfused and monitored.  She is now discharged home and resting.  She is working on building up her blood levels and strength, but we know this will take quite some time....likely a few months.
What I am asking is that you donate to Mary and David to help keep them afloat financially.  This isn't just money for them right now....this is the ability for Mary to take the time to heal both physically and emotionally without the stress of money weighing on her. When there is so much stress over what just happened and so much to process, money should be the last worry.
As you know being a hair dresser means long hours of being on your feet and even just short periods of time being up is exhausting at this point.
Please do what you can to help out.  As many of us know even a little goes a long way when things get rough.  
Thank you  :)
