Brenda's Believers

Our Mother, Brenda, was in an accident on Saturday, July 2. She hit her head and was brought to the ER via ambulance. After evaluation, it was determined that she had a few brain bleeds and was emergency airlifted to Christ Hospital.  After another CT Scan, it was clear that the bleeding on her brain needed surgery to be stopped. She was brought in for brain surgery on Sunday, July 3rd. They sucessfully took care of the largest bleed. Mom still has a few more bleeds that they are keeping a close eye on. She has a few other minor injuries and bumps and bruises.  We have created the page in order to help out my parents with the overwhelming financial burden that this will create.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read her story, for your continued prayers, and all the other ways you have been supportive. The phone calls and messages of well wishes mean the world to my family.
