Sweet Autumn's Surgery

Recently my sister had taken my niece Autumn to the doctor to have a lump on her groin area checked. It was then that the doctor had found she had a inguinal hernia. At this point we learned surgery needed to be done sooner than later due to the fact that left untreated a hernia can be life threatening. A loop of her intestine can become stuck in her hernia and could ultimately cause the intestine to become blocked, if that happens blood flow to the loop of the intestine  can be cut off causing that part of the intestine to die. 

Autumn will undergo surgery Thursday April 3, 2014 at Children's Medical Center in Dallas. Due to changes with my sisters Medical Insurance for 2014- she must meet a $5000 deductible out of pocket expense before any insurance will cover the surgery. This is going to cause a financial hardship to which they were not prepared for. My sister would never ask for help from anyone so I wanted to find a way to help her.

For those that don't know Autumn she is the sweetest, most energetic, fun-loving child. She certainly brings a ton of laughter and joy to our whole family.

We are asking for help in paying the out of pocket cost for her surgery to ease the financial burden on my sister and her husband. Any amount is greatly appreciated by all of us. If we are lucky enough to reach our goal and then exceed it, we will donate the amount over $5000 goal to a children's charity in our area. 

Thank You so Much,
