SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Central Catholic School is encouraging its community to support 2017 graduate Mari Shaw, who, as of press time, was on life support at a hospital in Orlando, Florida. According to her alma mater, Shaw needs a liver transplant and doesn’t have health insurance. A GoFundMe was created last week by Karen McIntosh to raise funds for Shaw. “Please if there is anything you can do to help,” McIntosh wrote on GoFundMe, “even if it is not monetary, please just send prayers.” 

According to McIntosh, they are waiting for a bed to open up at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, where a transplant can take place. Once a bed is available, Shaw will be airlifted to the hospital. To learn more or donate to the fundraiser, visit
