Java Hut Bake Sale to assist Ramona family in need
Proceeds from a bake sale at Java Hut Coffee Shop Saturday morning will help a widow whose teenage son suffers with a severe case of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
The May 18 bake sale will be from 7 to 11 a.m. at Bob Murray’s Java Hut at 23658 San Vicente Road.
After Christy Findeisen’s 14-year-old son Sean developed a debilitating case of OCD about two years ago, she said she was forced to quit her job at James Dukes Elementary School, where she worked with severely disabled students, to care for him. He went through an intensive outpatient program at UCLA, but it wasn’t enough, she said. The experts there told her he needed higher care.
He recently returned from treatment at Rogers Memorial Hospital, a residential OCD center in Wisconsin, and her concern is the mounting expenses. Widowed eight years ago, she said she’s sold much of what she owns to pay bills. She also has a 16-year-old daughter.
Donation jars are at Java Hut, the Country Wine and Spirits store, and Ace Hardware, all in the San Diego Country Estates part of Ramona.
She’s started an account for her son at Union Bank at 1512 Main St. and said any checks donated can be made out to Sean Findeisen.
A high school freshman, Sean tried working at home through the school’s e2020 computer program, but his anxiety level was so high he couldn’t concentrate, she said.
She said any donations are appreciated. What may seem small to someone would mean a great deal to her and her family, she said.
