Chi Chi LaRue, as you may remember, was subjected to an intervention by her friends earlier this month and was immediately packed off to Minnesota to the rehab center known as Hazelden. Now, as Sister Roma tells us, she needs money to stay there because it looks like insurance might only cover 30 days?
Everyone seems in agreement that Chi Chi needs more than a month away, in rehab, to overcome her addiction demons, but Hazelden is likely very pricey.
Here’s Roma’s plea:
Friend Kevin Mollin writes,
We are happy to report that in the first 20 days, Chi Chi has fully embraced the program and is taking all of the necessary steps towards living a full sober life. Unfortunately, his family has been informed that after the first month, insurance will no longer cover any of the costs or expenses related to treatment. Without our help, Chi Chi will be forced to leave the facility in 7 days.
Even with all of the progress he has made, Chi Chi is still at the beginning of this journey and requires an additional 60 days in the program to get to the heart of the issue and increase his chances for success. We believe that his life depends on it.
Here’s the GoFundMe link, which just went up an hour ago, and if you want to help Chi Chi’s cause, and help her get well. The goal is $40,000 (I guess that means it $20K a month), which means it’s going to take a village.
