On December 14th 2019 our beautiful mother suffered a severe heart attack and was rushed to Progress West Hospital where every effort was made to save her. She was stabilized enough to transfer to the Cardiothoracic ICU at Barnes Jewish Hospital where she was placed on life support and a device to pump her heart. The incredible Doctors, Nurses and Healthcare professionals have worked around the clock to give her extraordinary care to increase her chance of survival. The road to recovery is long and uncertain but with the love and support from her family and friends we hope she will continue to fight and heal. She suffers from Familial Cardiomyopathy which is chronic weakening of the heart muscle, this has caused her left ventricle to stop working entirely. She will eventually need an LVAD which will do the work of the left ventricle. We are trying to raise some money to help with expenses while she fights for her life. This has been a major shock to our family as our mom is one of the most loving, vibrant and strong people we know, she is also our best friend. Her loving husband Greg has been by her side nonstop along with her mother, father, and sister. We want to do all we can in order to help relieve as much financial burden as possible so her and Greg can focus on healing and the journey ahead.44547212_157832604846701_r.jpeg44547212_1578326060838282_r.jpeg44547212_1578326079373206_r.jpeg44547212_1578326093959147_r.jpeg44547212_1578326105452517_r.jpeg44547212_1578326121379155_r.jpeg44547212_1578326136165255_r.jpeg44547212_1578326149604801_r.jpeg44547212_157832616054350_r.jpeg44547212_157832617495725_r.jpeg
