It has been over 7 years since Risa's accident. Unfortunately, her life has been very difficult, and her health, a constant problem. She had to quit teaching several years ago, and has spent time in both assisted living and nursing home facilities, and has had several surgeries. Her financial situation has gotten very bad, and she has many medical and dental needs, as well as medications that are no longer covered by her insurance. Despite all of the pain she endures and these difficulties, she continues to have a strong will to live and be here for her son, and is always appreciative of all of her blessings. Risa recently had to have very costly (even at dentist's discounted rate) dental work, and her van is getting very worn out. She will not have the money or means to replace it unless money is raised. Please donate if you can. It will make a huge difference in Risa's life.
