Libby’s Story

Please see the background story below and the subsequent updates under "Journal" for the tragic and amazing story of Libby Lehman's stroke and her ongoing recovery.  The family so appreciates your comments and concern.

If you would like to make a contribution to the "Libby Lehman Medical Fund", you may use paypal.com.  Just set up an account with paypal.com and donate to libby.medfund@gmail.com,  or send a check to her sister, Cathy Arnold, at 2220 Stanmore, Houston, TX 77019 for deposit into a special account at JPMorgan Chase Bank.  

Please do not make a contribution to CaringBridge "in tribute to Libby" as solicited on this website.  Those donations go to the CaringBridge website, not to Libby!

Libby gave so much to so many people.  She needs your support now.

On April 30, 2013, Libby had a ruptured aneurysm in her doctor's office and she was rushed to Memorial Hermann Hospital. Lester had taken her to the doctor's office because she had suffered severe headaches for a few days, starting in Paducah, Kentucky at a quilting conference.   The following day she had a 7 hour surgery to clip the aneurysm.  Several days later she suffered a stroke and vascular spasms and required additional surgery.  Updates on Libby's progress are in the  "Journal" section, including her many months in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, a few weeks at home, and recently a return to a skilled nursing care and rehab facility after a bout with an infection in the hospital. She continues moving on an uneven road to recovery with ongoing care and therapies. Thank you so much for your interest, support, and concern. Libby is blessed with so many friends, old and new!

Latest Journal Update

Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015 - A Chance to win a beautiful Valentine Treat!

      Today Libby has a full day of out patient therapies at TIRR - physical, occupational, and her afternoon RAMP program.  What a work-out!
      Marianne Fons, a world renowned quilting artist, teacher, and publicist of Fons and Porter fame (Love of Quilting Magazine), has donated a beautiful quilt that Marianne designed and constructed (quilted by LuAnn Downs) in honor of Libby. This quilt is made out of the Community fabric line by Moda Fabrics, called "Collection for a Cause" by Howard Marcus.  You will recall that Libby was selected by Moda Fabrics in 2014 to be honored with this Libby Lehman line of fabrics, with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this fabric line going to Libby's medical fund.  (Thank you so much Moda!)  Marianne Fons is using this quilt she made in a raffle to also help raise funds for Libby.  Here's how Marianne describes this fund raiser:

"Hello Friends,
Below is the info you need if you'd like to make a contribution (of any amount) to Libby and get your name in the hat to win the quilt I made from Moda's "Collection for a Cause."   The quilt is 60" X 75" and it is featured in the current (Jan/Feb) issue of Love of Quilting Magazine.

Make checks out to: LIBBY LEHMAN MEDICAL FUND. Mail to:
Libby’s Log Cabin
C/O Cathy Arnold
2220 Stanmore Drive
Houston, TX 77019

Cathy Arnold is one of Libby's sisters.   She's providing me with the names of every person who contributes.

  I'll be drawing a name out of a hat on February 13th,Valentine's Day Eve, so get those checks in quickly.  Be sure and include your contact information including your phone # in case you win.

THANK YOU to those of you who have contributed already,
Marianne Fons"
