Nurse Lavinia Needs our Help Now

It was pouring rain on September 28, 2018 when Lavinia was on her way to work and lost control of her vehicle.  She sustained critical injuries and has a long road of recovery ahead of her.

Anyone who knows her will tell you she is  a dedicated mother, daughter, treasured family member and friend.  She will go without, so others have what they need.

She is a caring nurse who has often left her family to take care of someone else's and is the kind of nurse you wish for, when you or your family are in need.  Now she is in need. 

I contemplated whether or not to organize this GoFundMe for her as she is a woman with pride,  who very rarely asks for anything.   She is the person  others seek for advice and help, and she often gives more than she has. 

I decided to go ahead and make one for her, because I know she would do it for me and anyone else who needed it in this situation.  She is the woman who advocates for what is right and tells hard truths.  

Lavinia will need financial  help to maintain all she has worked so hard for, as she has already rebuilt her life from the ground up. 

It is my hope to raise enough money to make sure she has her home to return to, money for any adaptative devices when she returns home and to ease the burden of her familiy's  every day needs immediately.   Please help in anyway you can,  she would do it for any of us.  

Thank you.
