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:

Hi Ian…
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
