The family and friends of Cynthia Lemke are trying to raise money to help her get into a nursing facility.

To whom it may concern,

My sister Cynthia Lemke is a resident of Blair Wisconsin, she is currently hospitalized at St. Francis Hospital 800 West Avenue South, La Crosse Wisconsin 54603 in room number 303. The phone number directly to her room is: 608-392-4303.
My sister Cynthia Lemke has been hospitalized over 20 times in the last year, she is currently getting wound vac care, for an infection from an accidental stab wound in her upper left chest near her heart. She developed a severe infection after she had a large hematoma, and is possibly facing losing her left breast. Due to so many medical issues and being hospitalized so many times in the last year, she was unable to keep up with her bills overhwelming her. She is on limited income disability, and recently was evicted by her landlord. She has until December 7th to relocate and has two children, as well as two dogs. With not being able to move her belongings due to hospitalization, we are asking if the community can come together to help move her things into storage, so she may go to a nursing home after hospitalization to receive iv antibiotics, and nursing care until she gets over this infection. She has no one that will take her two dogs which are shitzu lassoapso, just to house them temporarily.
My sister Cynthia Lemke has always helped others, any way she could. She would open her home to anyone that needed assistance including myself and my disabled veteran husband at more than one time. She even flew to Arizona to Phoenix when I resided there to stand by a soldier that was wounded. Due to her patriotism, the love for her country, I feel we can all come together to assist her in anyway. Even if it is just a card of thanks, to get better, or a single dollar from your pocket, anything would be appreciated.
You have her permission to go to her hospital room, and call her room directly to get the story from her. Please help her, and publish this story, she has gone through so much, and just needs a chance to help get on her feet, and get well again.
Respectfully during the opening of this holiday season,
p.s. let's make a wish come true.
