Event description

Description

Please join us for a special canvas painting party, to benefit Ludington resident, Jean Taylor. Read details about Jean and her medical recovery story after the event information...

Event information and details:

This event will run the same as other canvas painting events, and Jean will benefit from half of the ticket sales! You'll be able to follow along step-by-step in creating your own painting! We will be painting a lotus flower (picture coming soon). And you get to choose which colors to paint with! No artistic experience is needed to paint. All supplies are included, and we will be painting on a 16x20 inch canvas. Please wear clothes appropriate for painting! Aprons are provided, however, there's still a chance of getting paint on your clothes.

Event venue details:

While at the event, the Blu Moon Bistro will have drink and food specials, including $3 glasses of wine, $7 sushi, plus you'll recieve a local card, good for 10% off your meal! Blu Moon has an amazing menu, with tons of delicious options to choose from while you are painting. Anything ordered at the event is an additional charge. Please don't forget to tip your waitress!

Jean's story:

On October 22nd, Jean was admitted to the ICU at Mercy Hospital in Muskegon with sepsis (staph infection in her blood) and multiple abscesses in her spine. It was also eventually found that she had fluid around her brain that was causing severe confusion. She had emergency surgery the next day to remove the large abscess from her lumbar region, as it was compromising her spinal cord. During her two week hospital stay, she had 2 more surgeries to remove abscesses from her thoracic region and neck. During the first week in the ICU, it was not known if she would survive this illness but, by the grace of God, managed to dodge several bullets along the way and was discharged from the hospital on November 5th.

Since her discharge from the hospita,l she is still not 100% well, but is progressing every day. Unfortunately, though, she only carries critical care/accident insurance, so none of her post-discharge care (physical and occupational therapy, home visiting nursing, prescriptions, etc.) are covered, and she also has a $5000 deductible to pay out of pocket for her hospital stay and care, which at this point is looking to be in the range of $250,000 total.

Jean loves painting parties and would love it if you would join her at this event to celebrate her continued recovery and help contribute to her mounting medical expenses. Thank you!
