Sara Miller Recovery Support

Please Help Our Niece Sara

We are organizing a most urgent fundraiser for our niece Sara Miller, single mother to daughter Sophie. Sara has no reserve resources. She has a brain tumor called an Acoustic Neuroma and is scheduled for surgery. Recovery will take 6-12 months. Sara will not be able to drive or work during this time. Funds raised will help her obtain the necessary support while she undergoes rehabilitation. Our goal is $40,000.

Sara’s Surgery will remove the vestibular nerve, which is responsible for balance. Doctors believe the other side of her brain probably will take on that function. She is expected to deal with hearing loss, dizziness, vertigo, loss of balance, and facial paralysis. We are stepping in to help because Sara is alone in this.

Please join us in supporting Sara to rebuild her life. All donations are welcome and deeply appreciated. We hope you’ll be as generous as you can, but even a small gift can make a difference in helping Sara and Sophie make it through this next year.

And, would you please help spread the word by passing this along to five others, or more, from your mailing list? “It takes a village,” as they say. Thank you so much for your time and thoughtful consideration. If you want to know more, please contact either of us.

Thank you so much,

Harvey and Barbara Dershin
