Hannah is a self-determined young woman with autism. Before being medically kidnapped and sedated by Munson Medical Center, Hannah had a good life. She lived in her own apartment with good people who support her and care about her.

She is not a child, she is an adult with autism. She is a human being who loves, feels, and has a lust for life. She goes to concerts, theme parks, baseball games, movies, dates, listens to music, loves Billie Jo Armstrong and Rik Mayall....she is a PERSON with a life. She is so much more, than her diagnosis. 

She is being held by Munson Medical Center despite being medically cleared - for 32 days now. She has not been allowed outside or off the floor. They have banned all friends and family. They have restricted her access to her attorney and denied her access to her advocate.

The hospital and temporary guardian are demading that she be institutionalized in an AFC home. 

No sun. No friends. No swing. No therapy dog. No therapy. No activities. No community. Very limited communication, they have "RETURN TO SENDER" written accross her mail and have it sent back.

There are family and friends lined up ready to take her home and provide what she needs. Instead, a random stranger, who has 20+ other "wards" was assigned to decide where and with whom she can live. This person  does not know Hannah, will not speak to the family, and has fired all of her professional care providers. 

The attorneys and advocate at the RespectAbility Law Center http://respectabilitylawcenter.com are working around the clock to assert Hannah's Civil Rights and have her return to her home, her friends, her community, and her family. 

The cost of her legal defense is quickly adding up. Transcripts, filing fees, experts, and related costs are absolutely essential to preventing the institutionalization of this vulnerable, yet self-determined young woman.

By donating to this fund, you are assisting HANNAH in paying her own legal fees. Your donation to the legal fund will be dispersed directly to her attorney. Funds dispersed will be identified as being "Paid for by Friends of #freehannahg". Thank you!

Hi my name is Beth Kaashoek, I'm a Jamberry nails consultant but that isn't very important right now. What is important is I want to raise money for Hannah! This is a 100% online fundraiser for Hannah. I do not know Hannah but I am lucky enough to call Jonquil Norman a friend and past co worker, so I was made aware of Hannahs plight. I will be donating 100% of my commision! The fundraiser will run from Monday the 28th until Oct. 16. Any questions or comments can be directed here facebook.com/bethsberrys any orders can be placed here: http://bethsberrys.jamberry.com/party/?uid=9937a40c-a472-41a1-92d9-718d4114b207

A heart-felt thank you to everyone that has contributed and shared. The fight is not over. Hannah is still fighting for services that will allow her to continue to live independently in the community. The RespectABILITY Law Center is preparing for a Medicaid Fair Hearing next week to secure a level of services that will support her desire to live in her own home. Please consider donating whatever amount you able. Every dollar counts!
