Brain Surgery Needed

Hi everybody, I want to thank you in advance for your prayers and support. Financial help is most definitely needed, but more needed are your prayers! I have a rare brain disease/disorder called Moya Moya, basically my brain does not get the oxygen it needs to function normally. The operation takes a prominent blood vessel from your body and sews it into the brain to help with oxygenation. My insurance will cover 80%, however part of the dilemma is I live in TN and the premier surgeon for this operation is in CA. Dr Steinberg is one of the few surgeons that can perform this procedure. I will need to be in CA for a minimum of 26 days. Just the cost of air fare, hotel and car rental for 2 people will be just shy of $5000. Plus the cost of food and other expenses. I need to have somebody with me, as I will be unable to drive. Please help me in any way you can. Please pray for my health and guidance of the surgeons hands, and for my 2 children who are 16 and 14. Again I thank you for your help. Mary
