Amanda Sue Pants - Dragon-Slayer

$15,622 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 232 people in 4 months
Created February 28, 2018
When I met Amanda sometime around 1992-93 she told me she had a heart condition that was supposed to kick her ass before her 30s.  She then proceeded to kick its ass instead for the next 25 years like a boss.

During that time she has brought so many of us together, creating family out of the most rag tag folks you could cobble together. We are baristas, teachers, bike boys with skinned knees, crafty girls, parents, activists, comedians, dirty hippies, book worms, Duranies and more.  But because of this woman, we are also a family together.

Now Amanda Sue Pants needs our help.  Her recent emergency heart surgery is going to have lasting effects for Amanda and James and the poogs.  She won't be able to work for awhile and her medical bills will be ridiculous.  And pugs gotta eat, ya know?

Personally, Amanda touches my life all the time in a million ways.  She's an amazing Auntie to my kids, is my sister, makes me laugh until I burp up Blue Moon, gives awesome advice and is always down for a mid-day cry at the bar.  I know she has touched so many and I am grateful for a chance to help her and her family out right now when they need it.  

Please consider giving if you can.  The road ahead is long but there is no one I believe in more to be able to put this heart back in its place.

I thought I'd give a little update on the Pants-Hecht family for those of you who don't already know. Pants had another MRI and it showed that nothing is getting worse! This is good news. She still has a way to go but she is braving through it in a very Pants-like fashion, as we would expect. However she is tired and I'm sure that not being about to work with the babies and get around like she used to must be rough on her. Feel free to reach out and see if she and James need anything and just continue being the awesome friends you all are. They continue to be super thankful for all the love they receive.

Pants is doing well considering her body was wrenched open and her heart exploded and stuff. She has a couple of appointments coming up that will reveal whether or not she will need another surgery. Keep your fingers crossed that she is all done with that noise.

We have now reached just over half of the goal! Thank you everyone and keep on sharing! Amanda is doing great, considering, but she still has some mountains to climb. She will find out soon whether or not she will need another surgery- cross all the fingers to hope that she does not. But no matter what, she will have medical bills that could be really life-changing. Let's get them all the way to the goal so that they can rest easy and focus only on getting better and stronger! We love you all for your support and love!!
