Friends and family coming together
On Nov 5, 2018, our friend Nancy endured 2nd degree burns to her dominant hand and forearm while putting out a kitchen fire. You will thank us for sparing the gory visuals.
During her 10-day hospital stay, she underwent successful graft surgery. Recovery of her dominant hand function means she cannot work right now, and it is unclear how long it will be before she can return to work.
Nancy would want us to focus on blessings, and there are a few:
☘ Nancy is alive and healing well
☘ There was minimal property damage
☘ No one else was hurt or affected by the fire because she put it out!
However, as the holidays unfold this year, Nancy's insurance is only paying for 7 of those 10 days in the hospital. She now requires at least a few hours of in-home care each day which are also not covered by insurance. Plus, she needs to cover a year's worth of living expenses or until she can work again. As a business owner, Nancy also does not qualify for the bulk of social safety nets that would usually cover these costs. This is a huge burden and source of stress while she's recovering.
It's beome the perfect financial storm.
The power of the crowd.
It's the good news, here. You and me, family and friends who care about Nancy, coming together for the common goal of getting her through the storm.
