Marianne Lindgren Ways to Help Marianne

First post: Jul 21, 2022
Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

Marianne was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer back in May and has spent the last six weeks navigating the challenges of daily life while living in excruciating pain from a tumor that has been growing in her spine.  She has been in the hospital for the last two weeks where she finally received radiation therapy to help reduce the size of the tumor to help alleviate some of her pain.  She was sent home three nights ago from the hospital. Now that she is home we are working to understand exactly what her immediate needs are, for there are many.  

In the days, weeks and months ahead Marianne will need the help of family, friends, colleagues and neighbors in various ways.   We know that her immediate needs are for volunteers to aid with in home care, food delivery, rides to doctors appointments and most importantly, financial donations to help cover her expenses that disability and social security won't cover.  

Marianne has dedicated her life to serving others--her family, her friends, her staff/coworkers and her patients.  If you have been blessed to know Marianne, then I'm sure you have been blessed by her incredible generosity.  Whatever way the spirit moves you and you are able to help, we would be so grateful.  We will be regularly updating this site with ways to help.  

Thank you again for being here and for supporting Marianne.
