Madylon's MS Support

Last Sunday, May 16th, Madylon woke up unable to see clearly, the room spinning and struggling to move. She called Colby at work, telling him something seriously felt wrong and he needed to come home immediately. By the time he got home Madylon was in medical distress, completely paralyzed from the neck down, and unable to speak. She was taken by ambulance to KGH, admitted with several tests including an MRI. 

She has now been diagnosed with MS and will be a patient at KGH for the foreseeable future. 

Obviously this week has been incredibly stressful and has thrown this wonderful family's future into the unknown. Madylon was planning on returning to work in a few months, but seeing as her mobility hasn't returned, that's looking very unlikely. Colby's insurance won't cover all her medical expenses and it's unclear whether she'll need physical therapy or not. As if being diagnosed with MS wasn't emotionally and physically painful enough, Madylon is concerned that she and Colby won't have enough money to pay their rent.

Please, please share this and donate whatever you can.

p.s. - Today is Madylon's 26th birthday and she's spending it partially paralyzed in a hospital room. Donate money for her birthday!!!
