We are asking for new miracles and mercies each day, and as Jonathan and Emily's new routine is settling in, we're getting a better understanding of how we can support them:
First, updates and specific prayer needs can be found on their Caring Bridge site .
Second, food and childcare needs are being coordinated by family and neighbors. We'll reach out as we need help filling gaps!
And finally, we're seeing how quickly the unexpected bills are piling up. Even with great insurance, the out-of-pocket maxes will be easily reached for both 2019 and 2020, adding up to over $30,000. Unexpected logistical expenses (travel for family, special attire and resources for Lucy, hospital parking and meals...) are also popping up.
We would love to relieve as much stress as possible for the Settles, giving them the freedom to invest their energy into their family in the months ahead. Would you consider donating and sharing with anyone who might be interested in helping? (We've set the goal here for $20,000 after hitting $10,000 in the first 24 hours - amazing!! - but we'd love to exceed even that!)
Thanks for your support - in all of the ways! - as we believe with Jonathan and Emily that Lucy will dance again!
