Mayo has accepted her as a patient, and has told her to plan to come and stay for 2 weeks as an outpatient, so that she can be thoroughly poked, prodded, and scanned. Bunny has shared that she is very worried about Gypsy, since she has been recently complaining of having a high fever. It is really important that she gets to Mayo on August 26th!
One thing that insurance and Mayo do not cover is housing for outpatients. So, Gypsy is going to have to stay in a hotel for 2 full weeks. Her son and husband are worried sick about her, and will not let her go alone, of course! The cheapest place they have found to stay near Mayo is $47/night. So, housing alone for the trip is going to cost close to $700, not to mention the cost of them trying to find healthy food to eat while on the road. With limited funds, you can imagine how stressful this must be.
Gypsy set up a website at www.NoahsCloset.com, and is trying to sell a few things out of her house to raise money to help them pay for their hotel stay. So, please check that out.
BUT, after talking with Bunny, I agree that Gypsy doesn't need to be worrying about hosting an online garage sale as she is getting ready for her trip to Mayo, so Bunny has decided to Pay It Forward, and try to collect enough money to cover as much of her housing costs as possible.
As a side note, I must tell you that Bunny really wanted to use ALL of the money that has been raised for her new kitchen and give to Gypsy, but I told her that we should just try to raise money first before dipping into the funds that the Raw Fu community has so graciously donated out of their love for all that she has put into this site. Sooooo, Bunny and I have agreed to kick off the Gypsy's Club Mayo Fund with a donation of $150 each......sorry, Gypsy, maybe next time it'll be a trip to Club Med!
Our HEALTH is so important, and I think we all know women like Gypsy. Women who give and give, and never take the time to take care of themselves. That's what mother's do, isn't it? Brother, can you spare a dime?
