#Jennastrong

Wendy Corbin and her family are going through a very difficult time and we are reaching out to you for your love, prayers and financial support.  Over the course of this past year, Wendy’s daughter Jenna has been battling an eating disorder which caused significant damage to her heart and other internal organs.  Jenna was admitted to Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH this past week when her condition became very serious.  Her heart rate dropped to a low of 32 and her body was unable to process any nutrients due to a blockage in her stomach causing it to be sealed off from her intestines.  The doctors tried to bypass her stomach by inserting a feeding tube for nutrients directly into her intestines.  Unfortunately, her body has been unable to process the nutrients which has caused “Refeeding Syndrome” which can be fatal. 

Early this morning, Jenna was flown out to Denver, CO to be admitted into a residential treatment center to be treated by doctors who are trained in handling these types of situations. Jenna is expected to be there for the next 60 days.  Wendy is a single mother of two and is the sole support for her family.  Needless to say, this situation has caused an enormous financial burden on Wendy and her family.  Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated
