Today February 1, 2019, we were informed that Maryanns state medical insurance will not cover any part of her medical bills due to this being motor vehicle accident. Due to the fact that this was a hit and run accident and the fact that her own car insurance has a financial limit, we have raised our campaign, and are asking that our family and friends please donate what you can and to share this campaign with all your family and friends. Thank you so much for all you prayers and wishes, we appreciate it greatly.
