Our friend needs help.…

I just got this note from Carol Ford about what the Grones are dealing with.…look over it & see what you can do:
I just spoke to Dave Grone (his kids are recent FHHS grads, Ashley and Jason). His wife, Jacque, was flown off-island Friday with a brain aneurism and endured an 11 hour surgery at Harborview Medical Center. Dave said it was one of the most intensive brain surgeries there is.
Jacque works for the sheriff’s dept. and was formerly a long-time employee of Dr. Gossom at San Juan HealthCare. She is also an enthusiastic member of a local softball team in the adult league. Jacque will be in ICU for at least two weeks and then an indefinite amount of time in the regular hospital and eventually in physical therapy.
Dave, of course, needs to be down there with Jacque but it is costing him a lot of money to stay because the hospital does not offer accomodations for family. Since there is not really anything anyone can do for Dave or Jacque right now, I told him I would spread the word in case there may be someone in town who has access to an apt. or some other type of lodging where Dave can stay as he helps his wife recover.
If you can help me get the word out, I would really appreciate it. Right now Jacque’s family has a lot to deal with and finding a place for Dave to stay would be a huge load off his shoulders.
Thanks so much, Carol Ford
