Share in the Marklund joy this holiday season!
Imagine if the entire course of your life changed this morning.
The event could be something significant, but it could also be something seemingly small - if you turned left instead of going straight on your drive to work, or if you missed the train by 30 seconds. You may suddenly find yourself on entirely different path than the one you envisioned.
What would you do?
Beth faced this question after a life-altering tragedy while eight months pregnant with her daughter, Ashley. She was in a horrific car crash - hit head on by a drunk driver. The impact severed baby Ashley's umbilical cord and she began losing oxygen to her brain until she was delivered. Ashley sustained permanent brain damange and was profoundly disabled.
Though their lives were transformed, Beth and Ashley had a tight bond. Ashley developed a joyful personality and outoing nature. But between struggling to arrange care for Ashley and tending to Ashley's brothers, Beth needed a bigger circle of support. That's when she found Marklund. Ashley moved in when she was nine years old, and has been a very cheerful Marklund resident for over 20 years.
Thanks to the kindness of people like you, when parents need help to care for their child, they can turn to Marklund. You are the reason our 174 residents can receive exceptional care each and every day.
Will you share in the joy with a gift in support of everyone at Marklund?
