Melinda Yates surgery fund

Our dear Friend Melinda Yates could really use some help. She was in an accident where she fell and fractured her spine and skull. She had to go in for an emergency back surgery where they fused her spine from T5 to T9. She has a long road to recovery ahead of her. As luck will have it, she changed jobs earlier this year, and no longer has health insurance. She hasn’t been able to work since the accident, and will be out of work for at least another month. With her job, she relied mostly on tips, so when she’s not working, she has no other income coming in. Her medical bills are piling up, and she is in a real tough position financially. 
We are raising money to help pay for her medical and living expenses. Any and all support is greatly appreciated. And if you are unable to donate, you can help Melinda by sending prayers her way.
