I am making this Christmas wish request on behalf of my best friend since the 7th grade, Tomeka Crum. Tomeka resides near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and she is super close to her sister, Mia Garrett who lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mia suffers from the inflammatory disease, Sarcoidosis which deeply affects her lungs. On March 8th, 2015, she had a severe asthma attack which robbed her brain of oxygen for a long period of time.
Sadly, Mia has been in a coma since that day.
Tomeka tries to go home as much as she can to be by sister’s side, but it is an expense she can’t afford. Mia has made some small progress, moving her hand, opening her eyes a few times, but I think having her sister home more will make a huge difference in her recovery.
It is my Christmas wish to ask tom to fly Tomeka from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin on southwest airlines over a few weekends over the summer and fall, so that she can visit the sister she loves so much and be there for their strong family who have been so supportive of each other during this difficult time.
