Marian's family is uniting to raise money for a hip replacement required due to medication prescribed to control her lupus symptoms.

For the past eight years Marian has been battling symptoms related to systemic lupus nephritis. While it is difficult at times, she continues to have a positive outlook on life.

In January, Marian began experiencing pain in her right hip. What was thought to be an exercise injury was ultimately diagnosed as avacular osteo necrosis in the right hip by doctors in Guam and California.

It has been advised that she receive a total hip replacement on her right hip. Because this procedure is not available on Guam, like many others, Marian has to receive care elsewhere. She is scheduled to undergo surgery at the end of May in California.

During her stay, expenses have begun to pile up with the cost of food, lodging, and medical supplies. Although her insurance covers surgery and therapy, we were told they DO NOT cover the actual hip implant.

In addition to your words of encouragement and prayers, we appreciate any financial help you can provide.

If you would prefer to mail a check, you may do so in Marian's name and send to:

Marian Flores Punzalan
P.O. Box 21206
GMF, Barrigada, GU 96921.

Si yu'us ma'ase for your prayers and generosity.
