Hello, my name is Nina Bond. I am setting up this fundraiser for my mom, Mary Ann Damato. Mary Ann has dedicated her life to the service of others. You may know her from retreats, international travel, or the welcoming face at your local coffee stoop. She's always up for a good discussion. There are countless ways she has made a difference in people's lives, from all walks of life. Now, more than ever, she needs help from her community. She is very sick and is seeking medical treatment. My sister is with her now, traveling from Mexico. If you are able, please donate. If you are not able to donate please share with anyone in your life who has known Mary Ann's light. Much love to you and yours.
MARY ANN UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who has contributed or shared this fundraiser so far. Your generosity is humbling. The doctor's at Yale New Haven Hospital found a number of locations in her body where cancer has metastasized. She also has a life threatening blood clot on her pulmonary artery, which makes treatment more complicated and limits the options. The prognoses is unclear but short. We have increased the fundraising goal since there are affairs to get in order.
