All proceeds received go directly to the Rombach Family of Marblehead to benefit the Casa Rombach Recovery Fund. The family's youngest daughter, Chloe (now 25), was severely brain injured in December 2014 and has not regained full consciousness. Their family home URGENTLY needs modifications to allow them to bring her home and care for her. They are busily working on the renovations and I'd love to help them by covering the costs. Let's do this.

On December 9th, 2014, Chloe Rombach (then 22 yrs old), stepped into a dark and rainy night to make the 10 minute walk to her job as a yoga instructor for Karuna Yoga in Northampton, MA. She never made it.
As she entered the crosswalk at Fair and Bridge Streets, she was struck by a car and dragged 150 feet. It took a team of firefighters to free her. The Rombach family entered a living nightmare that night and have been by the bedside of Chloe in the many days that have passed since the accident.
A few days after the accident, Chloe had an emergency double craniectomy (removal of two large portions of her skull) to allow her brain to swell and prevent further damage. Finally, on Thur. 4/30/15, she went into surgery to add titanium plates and make her skull whole once again. This is a major blessing and we celebrate each incremental step in her progress.
While handling this unimaginable tragedy, the Rombachs face a towering mountain of financial obligations, and Chloe will need continuing medical care for many years to come. Financially, things could not be much worse.
Let's try to eliminate one of their greatest monthly financial obligations:
Paying for their home's renovations.
Let's do it for the love of the Rombachs:
Ed, Jeannie and AJ (their eldest daughter) and, especially, for Chloe.
The goal is set as follows:
Phase 1: RENOVATIONS
$95,000 needed to pay for home repairs and improvements to the main house and basement - to make the house safe and wheelchair accessible for Chloe
Onward and upward.
Here's a video I made to tell Chloe's story - set to the beautiful music of songwriter and musician, Dean Fields, who graciously allowed me to use two of his songs: Any Minute Now and Not Again, to serve as the narration for these images. Thank you, Dean.
You can now also pay via check!
