Rita's Get Well Fund!

Rita, our daughter has had a very stressful life and it's not getting any easier.    Anybody who knows us, knows about Rita's myriad of medical challenges.

As many of you know, Rita is quite a special woman and even with her  issues was able to graduate college, secure a job and move back to Minnesota  into an apartment on her own.  

So here we are 31 years later and she is need of some major repairs.   She is scheduled for major surgery with 5 different surgical teams in just 10 days. Followed by three (3) weeks in the hospital (if all goes well) and then off to rehab for who knows how long?

So we were hoping that our friends, her friends, friends of friends and friends of those friends could help her financially while she is unable to work and recovering.   

Rita requested that we  post this on her behalf.

If you were wondering about the photo above.  Rita's Hebrew name is Rakefet Miriam.  The Rakefet is a very hardy and beautiful flower that is even able grow out of rocks.    The Rakefet is known as the Cyclomen in this country.

Thank you
