The family and friends of Karen Maus are uniting to help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden.

Last week Karen had to have emergency surgery to remove a 2lb teratoma that was the size of a grapefruit from her uterus. The teratoma was setting up against her left ovary and fallopian tube which also had to be removed during surgery. Karen is without medical insurance and will be facing the cost of these medical bills on her own. Due to the C-section like incision that was made to remove the teratoma she must take a 6 week leave of absence from work. She does not have any benefits at work such as paid time off, paid vacation days or FMLA benefits. This means 6 weeks of no income what soever. We all have or will at sometime face unexpected and unfortunate events. Its times like this that we must lean on each other to help us through. I'm asking all of you to please lend a hand to someone I love very much who is in need. Even a small donation makes a huge difference. Thank you all so much for your generous contributions!
