Emergency Medical Assistance

Hi friends and family,

In Mid-May my husband Ronnie came home from work complaining that he wasn't feeling well. He thought it was just exhaustion from working so much, however by the next morning when I went to wake him up I found him lethargic, confused and swollen all over. We rushed him to the ED where we spent the next six days. Over this time, to our shock and heartache we found out that Ronnie was in need of a transplant immediately. Due to the emergent nature we were required to pack up and fly the next day to a transplant center that could handle his situation. We had to leave our car, apartment and all of our belongings. Additionally, I have had to take a leave from my nursing  job to attend Ronnie's doctor appointments and assist with his care as he has gotten very sick rapidly and is in need of constant care. As part of his treatment it is a requirement that I be with him at all times with the exception of 2 hours out of each 24 hour window. This has left us at this point with no income coming in. Fortunately we had a small amount of money saved that assisted with air travel and a hotel. Unfortunately, however our funds have run out and we have many expenses coming our way that I am unable to cover. We will need ongoing housing, prescriptions, groceries and most importantly the need to stay current on our insurance premiums in order to ensure Ronnie continues to receive the life saving care and transplant we are waiting for. I am reaching out to all of you for your support during this difficult time. I know that for some of you it may not be possible to help us financially but please know that your prayers, support and encouragement are also very much needed and important to us. This has been an extremely difficult and scary time for us and we are now facing serious financial concerns on how to afford Ronnie's care and our daily needs. Anything that you can contribute, even if it's a small amount would be appreciated more than words could ever say.
Sincerely,
Shanna and Ronnie
