Mom facing surgery just before Christmas

Tyra is a stay-at-home mom with three children, Thomas, 10, Rose, 12, and Michael, 15. Her husband Charles works hard to support the family, while she works hard taking care of the house and children.

Tyra recently learned she needs hip surgery just before Christmas, which means Charles will have to be chief caregiver and holiday planner in addition to supporting the family. Tyra hopes to provide a merry Christmas for her family, but she needs help.

A donation to the Brighter Christmas fund would help provide gifts for their three children and ease the family’s financial stress.

The Brighter Christmas Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity, and tax-deductible donations, which also help other families in need on the Mid-Shore, may be sent to The Brighter Christmas Fund, c/o The Star Democrat, P.O. Box 600, Easton, MD 21601. Donations also may be made online via credit card or Paypal at Click the “Donate” button. For more information about the Fund, call 410-200-1884.

The total to date is: $31,825.
