The Family and Friends of Terri Blakely are joining together to raise funds to assist in her recovery from a stroke.

On March 19th 2012, Terri Blakely suffered an Ischemic Stroke. Terri is a 41 year old, single mother of two active, beautiful children ages 9 and 11.

Following emergency surgery to remove multiple bloodclots, it was discover that the stroke left her partially paralyzed on her right side and she is affected by Asphasia (inablity to speak). She now requires physical, occupational and speech therapy. Unfortunately, speech therapy is one of the services not covered by her insurance.

Terri is a lifelong resident of Micanopy. While being well-known and loved in this community, she is also widely known for her inexhaustible kindness and compassion. When someone needs an ear, she is there. If someone falls on hard times, she is there to help. If it needs to be done, you can always count on her to help out.

Terri is a self-employed, small business owner, supporting herself and her children. Her clients would tell you what a hard worker that she is and how she always goes out of her way to do any extras when asked.

Terri is working hard though her therapies and sheer determination of spirit and will to regain the ability to use her right arm. These include multiple sets of exercises throughout the day. She is also working to be able to speak again. As you can imagine, this unexpected family crisis has taken quite a toll on Terri and her family both emotionally and financially. As a result of her stroke, Terri has been rendered unable to work for the forseeable future. Due to the fact that she was self employed, she doesn't qualify for many benefits that she is in need of.

The family and friends of Terri, along with the entire community of Micanopy are mobilizing to help raise funds for her recovery and future.

If you have any questions, or suggestions or just need to contact a representative for the family please call Wanda Tison (Terri's Sister) at 352-215-8059 or e-mail at
