Help for Melanie Wojnar-Park
Organized by: Melani Parks
Melani Wojnar-Parks went into the hospital thinking she had a problem with Kidney Stones. It turned out that Melanie had five different infections in her abdomen. She had to be opened up from just below the sternum, lengthwise to her pelvic bone. Part of her colon had to be removed and she was literally at deaths door. The doctors had to go in and remove all the pockets of infection that had formed inside her abdomen, rinse her out, and pack the incision. The incision is healing, but she has to have new packing put in everyday. After one week in intensive care, she had to spend another month in a regular room at the hospital. Her stepmother has come from quite a distance to stay with her and help her with her care. Melani has not been able to work and has no income coming in. She is not going to be able to work until she is healed up which could take another few months barring everything works in her favor healthwise. She needs some help to cover food, rent, utilities, and just the basics of life until she gets back on her feet. I know she will appreciate anything that anyone could contribute.
