After several surgeries over the last couple of years to remove blood clots, Gwen's medical team had to amputate one of her feet to stop an infection. Shortly before the amputation, she was dismissed from her elementary school teaching job due to excessive medical absences (surgeries).
When she was coming-to after the operation, Mom told me she was snarky as usual, and it was only a few hours before she adopted the flamingo as a sort-of mascot (since they like to stand on one leg).
She is incredibly brave and strong about the whole situation, and I hope that this solicitation finds everyone whom she has blessed with her friendship over the years. Friends, share this with your friends, and parents of her students, share with other parents, and lets raise enough money to make a significant impact!
