Ashers medical fund
of $2,000 goal
Raised by 33 people in 51 months
Hi I am the Nana of a very special little boy Asher. Asher is 3 years old and will soon be undergoing his 5th surgery. Asher was born with spina bifida myelomeningocele. Because of this Asher has many other medical problems, most recently hydronephrosis and complications with his nuerogenic bladder. The last 2 weeks have been financially and mentally draining for Asher and his family, My daughter Delanie had to leave her job so that she could care for him full time. Currently Asher has a foley catheter in place because of a urethral obstruction that is not allowing the normal straight catheter he is used to. Because of this obstruction Asher will need an unplanned surgery next week, they will being doing a cystoscopy and placing a suprapubic catheter to keep his bladder empty and his kidneys safe. The hospital that Asher goes to is a 2 hour drive from home. They are blessed to have the Ronald Mcdonald house to stay but this is still not free, and the cost just adds up each day they are there, not to mention the gas they need to come back and forth. Santos, Asher's dad, cannot even be there for his appointments, emergency room visits, and probably the surgery because they are in no place for him to miss any work. He is working close to 60 hours or more a week just to get by. They really need help with the unexpected costs of being 2 hours from home unplanned. It would be nice if we could raise even enough money so that Santos could take time from work to be there with his family. Thank you for your time in reading and anything will help.
