Debbie Shank was a Wal-Mart employee when she was left "brain damaged, disabled and penniless" from a car accident seven years ago. But after the Shank family received a settlement from the trucking company at fault, Wal-Mart demanded reimbursement for every cent it had paid for Debbie’s medical bills – plus interest and legal fees. Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Debbie Shank’s case, leaving her family no choice but to pay Wal-Mart $470,000.

Now her family doesn’t know how they’re going to be able to afford Debbie’s nursing home bills. Wal-Mart’s lawyers may be following the law, but they certainly aren’t following their hearts. Take a moment to let the Shank family know you are supporting them, then tell Wal-Mart to make the moral choice and help Debbie Shank.
