Eric was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2001, shortly after we were married. If you don't know what UC is, click here. Seven years ago, he had three, life-saving surgeries. Ninety... more

I am getting e-mails from multiple people asking if they can still donate after we meet the goal. Yes, there will be expenses after the surgery (meds, the possibility of physical therapy). If you want to donate more, that's what we'll use the money for.

And after that's been taken care of, every other penny will go to Exeter Hospital to help others. It's sad that we're not the only people in this situation, and (obviously) taking care of my husband is my top priority. After that, though...we want to give back to the world that has shown us so much love and generosity (aaaaand, I'm crying again).

Eric was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2001, shortly after we were married. If you don't know what UC is, click here.

Seven years ago, he had three, life-saving surgeries. Ninety percent of his colon was removed, and a J-pouch constructed.

Seven years ago, we were both employed and had heath insurance. Now, we're both unemployed and have none.

He needs another surgery. Technically, he should have had this over a year ago, but it wasn't urgent, and we couldn't afford it.

Now, it's urgent.
