Sawyer’s Surgery

Hi, I’m Andrea, Sawyer’s mom. He just turned three years old and is the sweetest most tenacious boy that would have you laughing in the first 5 minutes of being around him and have you absolutely smitten and wrapped around his tiny finger almost instantly. 100% boy and loves dinosaurs, Spider-Man and just about any action figure he can get his hands on. Recently Sawyer has been having urological issues. We started taking him to his primary and he wanted us to see a urologist. After ultrasounds of his kidneys and bladder and X-rays and examinations, the doctors have come to the conclusion that Sawyer needs surgery. A sort of urological reconstruction. His surgery date is set for December 18th at a Children’s Hospital. With that said, our insurance is not the best and must pay our deductible by day of surgery which is a lot or he doesn’t have surgery. We also have to pay 40% of the medical bills. I will have to take 2-4 weeks off to take care of him and do not have the vacation time from work to take off. We don’t ask for help. My husband and I try really hard to put others first and us last. We both work full time but with these unexpected medical bills we just can’t do it. We are asking for help. We are asking for prayers and thoughts and if you feel you’d like to help us financially in any amount would be a tremendous help for us. Thank you so much for reading our story.
