The friends of Mary Vaught are striving to raise money to assist with her battle against lung and spinal cancer.

I met Mary Vaught 18 years ago in Key West. She was a professional photographer and I was just starting my children's theatre company, Porkchop Productions. Mary took our first publicity shots, helped make costumes and promoted our business. We became fast friends. A few years later, Mary left the photography business and moved on to her true love: animals. She opened Freida's Kritter Boutique in Cocoa, FL and worked tirelessly over the years to raise money for abused and abandoned pets throughout the Southeast.
Two years ago Mary suffered a stroke that left her unable to work full time. In September of 2010, Mary had to close her business due to failing health. Just last week, she was diagnosed with lung and spinal cancer.
Her medical bills are overwhelming. It is my goal to help ease her financial burden and give back to this incredible woman who gave so much to so many; people and animals alike.
