Gretchen's Medical Fund

I want to start by saying thank you for reading. I want to tell you about a girl named Gretchen, who has endured more in 16 years then most have had to there whole lives. Born deaf, at age 5 diagnosed with cancer(brain tumors) But yet she fought and we thought we had beat it at age 11 3 new tumors where found. At the time I was dealing with cervical cancer It was a major blow to us emotional, physically, and financially. At age 15 we were given the news the the inner muscle of her heart was dying and that eventually she would need a new heart. A couple of months ago she went back to ICU The damage to her heart was getting worse and at a faster pace then they thought. Now they are looking to put in a pacemaker with a defibrillator before we can start the pre-treatment for heart surgery. We are now on the cusp of loosing everything including Gretchen. We are now close to 300k in debt with no end in site to the medical bills. We are behind on everything and struggling to keep the lights on. I am begging and pleading for help I do not know where else to turn

Please help my daughter Gretchen

Thank you in advance
