Gail’s Goal: A Challenge

Gail has been described in many ways: artist, philanthropist, and educator, and friend. However, in her most recent role as patient, she faces debilitating daily pain that has continued to increase with time and made it difficult for her to create. Dr. Heller, an internationally renowned lecturer and surgeon at Emory Clinic, has approved Gail for a necessary spinal surgery with a good outcome prognosis. Gail does not have much time to prepare. The surgery has been scheduled for Wednesday, March 21st! The initial out-of-pocket medical expenses for the surgery are $7,550. Post-op care for the 6 to 8 weeks rehab is estimated to be anywhere from $6,400 – $9,600. We have a minimum goal of $17,150! We are asking for help to meet this challenge within the next several weeks.
