Friends of Laura Wallace are uniting to raise the funds to purchase a computer for her as she battles MS in a nursing home. Please help!

Laura is a happily married, 40 year old mother of three young children. For the last several years, Laura and her family have endured more trials than what most of us would face in a lifetime. This past year, however, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The MS has quickly taken over, and within the last week, Laura has been hospitalized, has lost use of both legs, and has now been placed into a nursing home. We are hopeful, that with physical therapy, and much prayer, that she will be able to walk again to be the type of mother she is used to being!

So why a computer? If you can, for just a minute, put yourself in Laura's shoes. She just turned 40 years old and has three children under the age of 12, and living in a nursing home. Not at home taking care of her family. Not seeing her children off to school. Struggling to even walk. She is surrounded by people that are much older, and she feels lonely, out of place, and desperate for human interaction. This is where you come in to play!

Laura and her family can't afford to purchase a computer for Laura in the nursing home, however, I feel that it would be the best thing for her to keep in touch with family and friends through email, facebook, etc. She would be able to play games, stay caught up with the outside world, etc. So many wonderful things to keep her mind occupied during what could be a very long stay.

Who would you be helping? Laura is a very dear friend to me who literally has nothing. But, the little she does have, she would give to anyone. During points in my life, she was the one there for me, when nobody else was. For that reason, I want to pay it her. Please help me with the cost of an Acer Netbook for Laura to give her a sense of being involved in the outside world and to help her remember she is loved. Thank you.

***BY THE WAY*** Laura does NOT know I am doing this. I would like it to be a surprise!
