This is the Ashley Scalise Aid Fund. Funds will be used to help pay for Ashley's surgery and related expenses not covered by insurance.

One of my closest friends, Ashley Scalise has a severe sinus condition, so bad that she lives in a constant state of sickness with debilitating headaches, pressure, dizzy spells, and even passes out occasionally at inconvenient moments. And because of this it is a stressful ordeal just getting to and from work and school. She is already swamped with medical bills as is and the surgery that is being suggested could remedy her condition will cost at least a $5,000-$6,000 co-pay with her current insurance. Shes just a 20 yr. old college kid and frankly doesn't have the money or support to get the surgery so she is forced to just live with it. She is without a doubt one of the kindest, hardworking individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting, which makes it even more upsetting that she goes through what she does. I'm just a college student as well and cannot really help her much. I've had to sit and watch one of my dearest friends live constantly miserable, comfort her in tears wishing to feel normal again and not sickly, and it just makes me wish for some way to help make it happen so she can actually live her life again. I suppose this is my "shot in the dark," a desperate attempt at that wish. She isn't aware of this fundraiser yet as it being so spur of the moment, I really just want to raise as much as I can to help her, and honestly I might end up just letting it be a surprise. On the off chance this works at all and I can get her expense aid in whatever amount, I give my absolute thanks and appreciation.
