Mom with Brain Anuerysm&Dissection

Dawn Brown, a Special Education teacher in Bridgeport, Connecticut and a single mother of two boys (Justin and Jason), recently found out she has a tear in the vertebral artery of her brain, a blood clot and a brain aneurysm. She has devoted 24 years to serving students in the Bridgeport Public Schools that have special needs and due to her extremely fragile medical state, Dawn is not allowed to work with her beloved students.

This is a very scary time for Dawn and she needs to stay positive and focus on getting healthy; however, she desperately needs financial assistance. Dawn has zero income after exhausting her sick time and is currently unable to pay basic household bills, countless hospital bills and medical treatment fees. Any donation amount is sincerely appreciated and 100% of funds raised will go directly towards helping Dawn get healthy enough to return to teaching.
