Friends of Monica Del Rossi Spicer have united to raise money to reduce the financial damage brought on by Multiple Sclerosis.

Monica Spicer (also known as Monica Del Rossi or Meade) was diagnosed with a progressive form of Multiple Sclerosis in 2004. Since the onset, Monica has experienced debilitating attacks, cognitive impairment, long stints of paralysis, intermittent loss of vision, and has been hospitalized numerous times. Despite being wheel chair bound, bed ridden for days at a time and enduring grueling bouts of rehabilitation, Monica has continued to face this disease with inspiring bravery. While Monica does have some good days, those days are outnumbered by the bad. The reality is that she can barely care for herself, let alone her family.

Monica is fortunate to have her devoted husband Todd Meade by her side to care for her and their three beautiful children (Adam, Mackenzie, and Baby Henry) when she is too weak to do so herself. Unfortunately, those fragile days have been more frequent, which means Todd has had to take unpaid leave to care for Monica and 1 year old Henry. Recently, Monica has had life threatening complications including double pneumonia 4 times within the last year. This demand has depleted their savings and caused an enormous strain on the family which is why we are reaching out to all that know and love Monica to help them over this financial hurdle.

The goal of Miracles for Monica is to raise money to offset the mounting medical bills as well as hire in-home care for Monica. The donations raised will allow Todd to return to work while assuring that Monica will be well cared for properly. Due to the sudden and rapid decline in Monica’s health, this call to action comes with loving urgency. The sooner that this financial need is met; the sooner Monica and her family can refocus their energy on her recovery.

Whether Monica is your sister, cousin, aunt or friend…take a moment to reflect on how her infectious personality and compassionate heart has touched your life. We all want that Monica back! As you can imagine, her children and husband desperately want to see her well again. Even if Monica is someone you’ve just come to know through Miracles for Monica, simply imagine yourself or your loved one in her shoes. Giving forward will help Monica and her family to regain some normalcy and peace as they continue the fight against Multiple Sclerosis.

Monica and her family thank you in advance for your loving thoughts, prayers and your donation.
