Life is hard sometimes. And sometimes we all need help.


This is my friend, Erin. She is smart, active, and very independent. She loves her work and stays busier than anyone I know. She supports herself through freelance developmental editing, bilingual translation, and research. She is an avid and car-less cyclist, gardens, writes, volunteers with an environmental organization and a local theater, makes incredible art and crafts, helps others organize their work, does yoga… I could go on and on.


Last weekend she had an accident that severed the tendon in her thumb. It’s amazing what all you CAN’T do without a thumb. Erin had surgery earlier this week and is wearing a cast that covers most of her hand. She is truly devastated. She is unable to do the things she loves to do but, most importantly, she can’t ride her bike (her only means of transportation), she can’t work, she can’t even type.


Her friends that live nearby are helping with household chores, meals, and trips to the store, the doctor, therapy, etc. But she has multiple jobs that she will not be able to do for at least 12 weeks. She needs help keeping a roof over her head and the lights on as well as paying medical, surgical, and therapy costs. Twelve (12) weeks is a long time to go without a paycheck and she needs a little help from her friends.


Please join with me to get this vital member of our community through this tight spot. Give what you can or reach out and let her know how valued she is. Erin is not on Social Media but please share widely among your contacts.  You can email her at  She needs all of the support, both emotional and monetary, that we can give her.


Thank you!
