Kathy Scott has been on life support for 27 days so far. Please help by making a donation to relieve the family of some of the costs to keep her alive. Thank you. More ...

Kathy and her Granddaughter Paisley

This is Kathy Scott. She is a mother of two beautiful young woman, Kaeley Scott and Karrie Abbascia, a mother-in-law, a new grandmother of two adorable babies, Paisley and Coltin, a loving wife to her husband Sean, and has a spirit that is infectious to each and every person she meets. 

At the beginning of December, Kathy came down with what seemed to be a common winter cold. She went to the doctor like everyone does, got an antibiotic prescription, and went home. Weeks later, she wasn't any better and her daughter Kaeley took her back to the doctor. After the doctor checked her blood oxygen levels, she was immediately sent to the hospital via ambulance. 

After a couple short days in the hospital, Kathy was put on life support. It has been 14 days since she has been under, and counting. Kathy has been diagnosed with an extremely rare case of pneumonia that attacks the lungs. Her doctors are doing everything they can to speed up her recovery and get her home. Until then, she remains on life support.

Kathy Scott has missed her first Christmas as a grandmother. She will miss counting down to 2014. When she awakes, it will be 2014. Most importantly, she will have missed the holidays, a part of the year that Kathy loves and looks forward to every single year.

The Scott Family (and Dad being silly as always!)

The family has been sleeping at the hospital and praying each and every day that Kathy will wake soon. Today, I am asking for any donation you are able to give. All donations will be given to the Scott Family to assist in helping with the costs and expenses of life support. We need your help. They need your help. If you cannot afford a monetary donation, that is okay. We would love more prayers and positive vibes sent her way. 

You are probably wondering who I am... My name is Samantha Stuppy. I grew up with Kaeley and Karrie through my childhood and Kathy has always been a second mother to me. I know many of you can relate. When someone you love and care for is going through something like this, all you want to do is help.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read Kathy's story. God Bless!
