Help Vicki with Medical Bills

Everyone knows that 2020 has been a difficult year for many reasons. Jeff and Vicki certainly are no exception.

Vicki had been working at a job that provided insurance for both her and Jeff. Due to both medical and personal reasons, Vicki had to make the difficult decision to quit in March and subsequently lost her insurance. In addition to losing income and health insurance, Vicki has been dealing with ongoing health issues that have resulted in large out of pocket costs.

Unfortunately, she has learned that she will need additional procedures that will undoubtedly be very expensive without insurance. Furthermore, these surgeries cannot be scheduled until she can provide a percentage of the cost up front.

As you can imagine, it is very hard for Vicki and Jeff to ask for help. They have always found a way to make things work regardless of the situation.  However, they have not been able to secure insurance coverage due to eligibility issues as well as the cost of premiums.

Jeff and Vicki are very much loved by their friends and family. Everyone knows that they will be quick to jump in and help anyone in their time of need. Now, it is their time. I know both Jeff and Vicki appreciate all of the texts/calls, thoughts and prayers from everyone.

In case you don’t know me, I am one of their four children and guarantee that all donations raised here (minus any administrative fees) will be given to them to assist with medical costs.

Thank you!
