if you'd like to send her a get-well gift, please email me for the address of her hospital.

she's a very good friend of mine and i adore her -- wishing her a speedy, speedy recovery and a winning lotto ticket.

i think i may just send something to her house so that i know she will get it (her brother said she'll be at the hopital the next 4 days..so it may not get to her in time?? i don't know)..i just read about her surgery from her brother..poor alison..and not having insurance is terrible..i wonder if they have a program to help with payments?

a few years ago when i didn't have insurance i had to be admitted to the hospital for 9 days..the bills were over 30 grand, but my hospital had this program from people that made under a certain amount of money a year..i only had to pay minimum payments for a fews months and then the happiest letter of my life came.."your bill was paid in full" if there is going to be some sort of fundraiser please let me know..

On no! I just featured her shop on Indie Fixx and I'd love to offer Indie Fixx as a vehicle for promoting any fundraising ideas. Maybe a raffle for some donated goodies would work? I'd be happy to help plan something. Just send me an email at jen@indiefixx.com.
