My name is Lisa Pierce and I met Shelley at the University of Arizona where we both used to work. We met because I needed help with a UA calendar problem - I couldn't get my events to save and it was important b/c I was in a marketing position at the time. She found the glitch and helped me out of a pickle. We've been friends ever since. 

Now, she needs help, and it's of a more serious nature. Shelley has been at Banner University Medical Center since the beginning of November, 2018, in the ICU. She nearly died an untimely death in her 40's. She is a mother to a lovely daughter, who recently graduated college, & Shelley herself got married over a year ago to a wonderful man named Marcus Coltrin. Shelley has been diagnosed with idiopathic autoimmune necrotizing myositis. She is unable to speak with her actual voice right now, as she has had a tracheotomy and communicates using a laminated sheet displaying the alphabet and points to the letters in order to spell words. She will have to learn to do many things all over again - things that we take for granted. Her care in the ICU for about two months costs more than Blue Cross/Blue Shield will cover. To be blunt, Marcus and Shelley are worried about their rising medical bills when they should be focused on Shelley getting well.

Please help Shelley and Marcus by contributing whatever you can to the costs of Shelley's medical care in the ICU AND also sharing with your friends. Shelley is a great friend, wife and mother. She would give the shirt off her back to anyone else in need, but she and her family need us now. With your help, she and Marcus can stop stressing about medical care costs and concentrate on what matters most: Shelley's healing, getting out of the ICU, and her improved quality of life with immunotherapy. Share this far and wide, and together, we can change their lives for the better! Thank you!
