Alice Fitzgerald Alice Fitzgerald

In July, Alice had a massive stroke. Since then, she has been struggling to recover her ability to walk, move her right arm and hand, swallow and talk. Despite her long list of challenges, Alice has done remarkably well and has maintained her always cheery mood. She now looks forward to graduating from Manor Care Rolling Meadows.  She wants to return to her home, where the dog she loves so much, Mia, can live with her.  But without your help, Alice will not be able to go home at all or for long.  Alice needs your help.  


As you know or have heard, Alice has spent her life generously giving to others. As she worked at Transo Envelope Company in Chicago, she helped care for Ted, her husband who was cut down by polio at 26 years of age, and who spent the next 56 years in a wheel chair. Together, they raised Frank, their only son. When Alice retired, she volunteered all around her community: at the her church and the churches of others, at the Rolling Meadows Library, Museum, Fire Department, Police Department, Department of Public Works -- to name just a few. In fact, Alice had her stroke while relaxing with Mia in her backyard after a long day of volunteering at a local Farmer's Market. 


All her life, Alice has cheerfully and generously given to others.  Now, she needs the world to give back.
