Flowers & Trees to Help Us Clean Up and Beautify Her Yard


Hello,

This is Michel French, a friend of Maureen's. I created this Share a Gift page to gather as many people as I can to contribute to a FLOWER & TREE FUND for Maureen's property. I want to celebrate her life after nearly leaving us this past year!

As you may know, 2016 was a crazy year for Maureen. Even though she's lived several years past her diagnosis, it was still a surprise when her lungs began shutting down last spring and all the end stage symptoms of her lung disease began to show up. She went very internal to find her path back to life, and for those of you who live near her, you might have been part of her community kitchen renovation project that was an answer to her quest. Almost a year later and she's stronger and healthier than she's been in several years. Hooray!

Maureen's birthday is coming up on April 4th, and in celebration of her stepping back into life, there's a group of 6 powerful women gardeners who are coming to help her design and plant beautiful things in her yard.

Please contribute to adding blooms of color all over her yard. Any amount would be as lovely as Maureen is and very much appreciated!

You can see the property and hear Maureen talk about what she's imagining by going to the webpage she made for the women coming to help her garden. They call themselves THE YARDBIRDS, and they are AMAZING!
cfcablue.wixsite.com/yardbirds

The Yardbirds will be coming to clear the land and plant on April 7 and 8th.

For Maureen, this gift will be especially meaningful since 10% lung capacity leaves her unable to garden herself.

Thank you so much for loving Maureen along with me!

Michele French
