In June Avon fell, fracturing her leg in over 20 places and requiring extensive surgery. She has been receiving care in a rehabilitation center for the last several months. In August with only 36 hours notice, Medicare dropped her coverage even though she still can't walk or get out of bed independently.
Avon needs to raise a minimum of $7000 to continue her care. Unless she can cover the costs, she will be asked to leave the end of September. Her situation is urgent.
What Avon wants, is to stay in the facility long enough to learn to use a walker so when she goes home she will have the mobility she needs to care for herself and to continue her life's work as a peace builder. Avon has worked tirelessly for 50 years promoting peace and now she needs our help.
Many of our elders are falling through the cracks of the healthcare system. We want them to remain vital so they can continue making their contributions. We need them! Please join in our efforts to help get Avon back on her feet.
