Brian Gilbert started a GoFundMe for DomainBoardroom founder Donna Mahony. Sadly Brian lost his wife to the same disease Donna is dealing with.
Donna was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension several years ago.
The fund raising goal was $7,500
The page includes details:
Donna’s case has been accepted by USCD and she is set to arrive there on 4/21 for three days of testing. Once the test results are back, UCSD will then determine if they can move forward with the PTE surgery.
Traveling from her home in Chino Valley, AZ to San Diego, CA with meds, oxygen equipment, and a slew of other things needed to support her comes with its own set of obstacles. She has a very dear friend, Roxanne, who will be taking Donna to San Diego and staying with her to make sure she gets to all of her testing appointments. If Donna is given the green light for surgery, that will take place on 4/28. Roxanne will stay until Donna is stable post surgery and then head back to Arizona. Once Donna completes the post surgery rehab (3-4 days in ICU and approximately 2 weeks in a step down unit), she will be discharged. Roxanne will then make the trip back to San Diego ahead of Donna’s discharge to pick her up and bring her back to Chino Valley.”
36 donors have already raised $7,600, $100 over goal, I have not yet contributed but I will do that now as I am sure the more money raised the better.
Donna runs a great forum at DomainBoardroom.com and looks out for a lot of people on the forum.
I wish her all the best in a successful surgery and recovery.
Kudos to the community coming together this fast.
