It Takes A Village

As you all know, Carol Valentino (AKA Speedy), suffered a brain aneurysm while vacationing in Florence, Italy.  While treating her immediate situation it was discovered that beside the original aneurysm from 23 years ago, there are 2 additional aneurysms.  

The surgery to repair all three vessels is scheduled for 10/2/18.  The recovery from such a delicate procedure is extensive, on average 3 to 4 months. 

This is where the phrase "It Takes a Village" could not be more relevant, poignant and crucial to her overall health.  Though the medical team, is taking care of her health, and her insurance provider will cover her surgical cost; we all know the financial burden that will result in not be employed for months!   Everyone has been asking  how can they help and some of you have already done so.  However, now is the time to rally around her and show her just how much she means to you! Please donate whatever you can and help her through this healing process!
