Mrs. Mimi's Medical Fund

On the morning of Monday, May 8th 2017 a drastic change occurred for Mimi, her family and friends.

This is a medical fund for Esmeralda (Mimi) Garcia, a beloved mother, grandmother, friend, and co-worker. By the grace of God, Mimi miraculously drove herself to work and once there her friends and coworkers at Mary Hull Elementary School in San Antonio, Texas noticed that something was amiss. As many of you know, Mimi has been an integral part of the Mary Hull family for 26 years working in the front office and as a PTA officer.  She was experiencing confusion and was having difficulty speaking. They took her to the emergency room where it was discovered that she was experiencing a brain hemorrhage. She underwent surgery later that day and appeared to be rebounding when she experienced a set back and had to have another life saving emergency brain surgery on Wednesday, May 10th.  It was uncertain if she would survive the brain hemorrhage and when she did the prognosis was guarded.

Following the second surgery Mimi took her time in waking and responding and remained in ICU since her day of admission. She now has right sided paralysis and isn’t yet speaking and just this weekend she was transferred from ICU to another unit in the hospital and will be begin the long rehabilitation process.

Mimi’s long road to recovery is just beginning and will bring with it a mound of medical expenses. At this point it appears that she won’t be able to return to work so her income is limited. We are asking that you please take the time to assist in helping her children with these expenses during this difficult time. Donations will be used toward Mimi’s medical expenses, medications, physical, occupational and speech therapies as well as costs involved in adapting a home living space once she is able to leave the hospital and rehabilitation settings.  

Ms. Garcia has touched the lives of so many with her presence and her love and it would mean so much if you would return the favor through a monetary act of kindness.

Please share Mimi’s story.
