Melissa Javors Farewell to Denver

As daughters,  the one gift we can give our mother is the dignity and love she deserves now that she needs our help.  After all, she spent most of her life selflessly taking care of us!!

The time has come for us to bring our mama closer so we can help take care of her.  We are bringing Melissa to Denver this month to move into a house with Barbara.

Over the last couple of years, Melissa started having lots of medical problems, mostly related to her Diabetes. 
Orthostatic Hypotension is the newest diagnosis and has taken months to get a handle on.  She has fallen multiple times and broken many bones.  Her vision is also failing and this adds to her being a fall risk.  After 2 different kinds of pneumonia, a punctured lung from a fall in the shower and the most recent broken tail bone, she is incredibly weak and frail.
She is having a very difficult time healing and recovering and it has become clear that she needs us more than ever.

Rather than moving her into a skilled nursing facility or assisted living home we have chosen to move her to Colorado and Barbara has agreed to live with her and help take care of her. 
We will give her the comfort and beauty she deserves at this difficult time.  

We thought of throwing a going away party so she can visit with everyone before leaving, but she does not have the energy to even attend something like that, as she can barely sit up for more than an hour or so at a time.   :(

Upon the helpful suggestions of some of Melissa's best friends, we have decided to start this fund to raise money to help with some of the costs of this amazing adventure. 

Money raised will pay for travel expenses, moving her belongings, rent at her home until we can find a new roommate, medical expenses, and safe furniture for her at the new house.

We are extremely humbled in asking for donations and appreciate any help you give!

We are reminded how many people love our mama and how blessed she has been with friends like you!

Many hugs and kisses.....

Emily, Barbara and Melissa!
