Family and friends of Denise Garrison need your help after her brain aneurysm, worst case the doctor has seen. Please help with her therapy!

On September 7th Denise Garrison was rushed to the hospital due to a brain aneurysm. The injury was so severe, doctors thought there was nothing they could do for her. After observation through that night they successfully coiled the aneurysm to prevent further damage. Denise made it beyond the time period where there is a risk of having a stroke and she slowly recuperated to the point of making it out of intensive care. Now 7 weeks later she has progressed well enough to have been moved from the hospital to a nursing facility. However, the therapy she will receive is limited at this facility. Denise will need to learn her motor skills all over again and needs to be at a place specializing in brain injuries. The best place for her is Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center, in Mason, MI., a holistic approach to rehabilitation in a natural, healing environment. They specialize in programs and services that are designed to exclusively support recovery following a brain injury. Anyone who knows Denise would see that Origami is ideal for her. It is situated in a perfect setting, a country setting with gardens to work in and animals to feed and the physical therapy best for her to recover. However, Denise's medical bills are piling up, without the funds she will not receive the proper therapy to recover from her brain injury. She desperately needs our help! Denise is an extraordinary person who is a selfless individual. After working as a social worker and payee for the county, she runs her own payee business helping those in need of handling their finances. The Social Security office trusts her so greatly they recommend her over and over again. Many people depend on her with the work that she does. She volunteers her time with her church and other organizations giving back to the community. So by helping Denise, we are also helping the numerous people that she helps herself. We need to get her back on her feet again! Denise also runs another business with my husband and I, a small apartment house. I can't think of another person I would trust more than Denise to be in business with! She has the greatest integrity of anyone I know! My heart breaks for her! However she is a remarkable person, a strong person and seeing her recover thus far is amazing, a miracle in progress! So please consider giving to someone who has never asked for anything, but has only given to others. It's her turn now for help!
