If you know Maria, then you know what a beautiful, kind, creative, compassionate soul she is. She loves to make others smile and laugh. She finds joy in the happiness of others and is always looking for the beauty and light in the chaos and dark. Her laugh is contagious. If you know Maria, you also know that the past 15 months have been incredibly difficult, strenuous and heart wrenching for her. One year ago this month she became very sick and ended up needing a heart surgery in May of that year. She was not able to work from March of '22 till the end of August that year. Maria is a dog groomer, a job she loves and is very passionate about. Not working and receiving very little in short term disability, ate up all her savings. But it didn't stop there. As September approached, Maria's mom, her best friend, entered the hospital. Countless days off with no sign of her mom getting better, she went on an unpaid personal leave. Then the worst happened. Her mom died. Maria's world has been torn a part.

Now she faces a new, complicated challenge. On February 15th, Maria fell and hurt her foot. She has not been able to work because the pain is intense and she cannot bare weight on it. Today, February 24th, she found out that she has a torn ligament and a lisfranc fracture. She is unable to work for at least 30 more days. Possibly more if she needs surgery. As we all know, this day and age EVERYTHING is expensive. Rent, food, gas, utilities. Maria needs help. We need to rally around her, as she has done for so many others, and show her that even though she feels as if she is walking through hell, we are here to remind her of that beauty and light that she is always searching for. Remind her that she is not alone. Remind her of all the compassion that exists in this world. If you feel called to and you are able and willing to help, please let's help Maria. Let's help her by at least relieving her financial stress so she can concentrate on getting better. On her family and on healing. Physically. Mentally and emotionally. She needs us.

Thank you,

Brian

Maria does not need surgery!!!We are so excited about this news. Her foot is fractured in several different places and she has some sprained ligaments. They put her in a boot and she will return in 4 weeks for new standing x-rays. She is still off work, currently until April. . . . .

Maria is having a rough time. Depression has crept in. This time of year is hard for her as she approaches the anniversary of Stephen's death on the 13th. Plus not being able to do much, has her going a bit crazy. She did start making jewelry again though. This. . . . .
