14th Brain Surgery

My name is Vanessa. My husband, Chad, will be going in for his 14th brain surgery tomorrow morning. He’s had VP shunts placed since he was 11 months old. His last surgery was 5, almost 6 years ago. Unfortunately, we just moved to a new state 6 months ago. I’m a stay at home mom and we have 2 children. Since the recent move, Chad also got a new job.... which means he has no vacation time or sick days to use to help us get by in this time of need. He will be missing a minimum of a week of work and as we all know, bills don’t stop due to medical emergencies. We are asking for just enough to get us by until he’s able to return to work. Anything is helpful. Even if it is just a prayer that his surgery goes well and that he recovers quickly. Thank you so much!
