I want to start by saying thank you for reading. I want to tell you about a girl named Gretchen, who has endured more in 16 years then most have had to there whole lives. Born deaf, at age 5 diagnosed with cancer(brain tumors) But yet she fought and we thought we had beat it at age 11 3 new tumors where found. At the time I was dealing with cervical cancer It was a major blow to us emotional, physically, and financially. At age 15 we were given the news the the inner muscle of her heart was dying and that eventually she would need a new heart. A couple of months ago she went back to ICU The damage to her heart was getting worse and at a faster pace then they thought. Now they are looking to put in a pacemaker with a defibrillator before we can start the pre-treatment for heart surgery. We are now on the cusp of loosing everything including Gretchen. We are now close to 300k in debt with no end in site to the medical bills. We are behind on everything and struggling to keep the lights on. I am begging and pleading for help I do not know where else to turn

Please help my daughter Gretchen

Thank you in advance

So here is an update of what is going on....
Gretchen does dialyses 2 times a week right now. The infection they are fighting has started effecting her other organs but she is responding to treatments well. What we thought would take 1-2 months to get her ready for surgery may take up to 6 months now. She wears a heart monitor that sends data straight to her doctor Thank you to all that have donated and shared this with friends. Please keep the movement going as every little bit helps -XOXO Julie

So last week was pretty rough 3 treatments down total. Doctors are going to cut back to 2 per week instead of 3 because Gretchen's recovery time between each is taking longer then they expected and her immune system is not keeping up as they had hoped. I want to say thank you to everyone who has shown their support and We will keep everyone posted on milestones(both good and bad)

Gretchen has had her first pre-surgery treatment today Krieg has reported back that while the treatment itself went as planned Gretchen had a slight allergic reaction and treatment was stopped to deal with that. She will hopefully be released from the hospital this evening as treatment gets adjusted for the allergy and will start back up on Wednesday
