Maria Downing Care Fund

Organized by: John Reilly

THE STORY:

As many of you may be aware, in late March our colleague and teammate Maria Downing was diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer. She has started an aggressive and extensive treatment regimen that has and will include surgery, radiation and 16 battering rounds of chemotherapy.

As Maria’s insurance will only partially cover her mounting medical expenses, she needs our support to ensure that financial constraints will never limit the quality of care and rehabilitation that she receives. It goes without saying that receiving high caliber treatment will be an incredibly significant factor in the speed and effectiveness of her recovery and, although Maria certainly has a long road ahead, her resilience has never wavered.

To tell you a little about Maria, when she first mentioned this news to us at the end of Quarter 1, her primary concern was the timing of her diagnosis. She was terribly worried that her surgeries would impact her ability to perform the daily activities required to deliver end of quarter revenue. And no matter how we tried to convince her that she needed to prioritize her health first, she would inevitably arrive back to work, one day after each of her surgeries, to deliver upon her commitments.

As Team Leader of the Imaging product line, Maria has always put the team ahead of herself. She is driven to deliver high quality products and committed to perform with a team-first mindset. And now, as she begins a very difficult time in her life, she needs our team to come together as one. It is our time to step forward, reach out and offer a hand. And there is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting another up.

All donations will go to the “Maria Downing Care Fund” to help cover her uninsured medical expenses. Please consider donating and help spread the word.

Never underestimate the difference you can make in the life of a friend.
