Mary Katherine Ogden

First post: Oct 8, 2020 Latest post: Jun 2, 2021
Mary Katherine is a veteran Navy helicopter pilot and mother. Five days after delivering a beautiful healthy baby girl, Katherine suffered a severe hemorrhagic stroke. Surgeons performed life-saving emergency surgery and she was in a medically induced coma for almost 3 weeks. She then spent two months in the hospital and a full-time rehabilitation center working hard to recover as much function as possible. We are so grateful that she has been able to return home to her family, but with this long journey comes many challenges. There have been, and continue to be, significant expenses related to medical care, travel/commuting for rehab and hospital visits, child care, and Wes taking extended time off work to care for their family. Wes and Katherine are tough, positive, and hard-working. But, as family and friends, we can help to ease their burden by sharing our time, talent, and treasure. Wes travels for work, so getting Katherine to and from rehab when he's gone is a particular concern. Financial contributions will be used toward future home care for Katherine, extra therapy sessions, groceries for the family, and other uncovered medical expenses. You may contribute to the general fund or towards a specific expense area listed. Please check back periodically as we will update the page as the Ogden family's needs evolve. Thank you for your help and prayers.
