Help Denise with her Medical Expenses

A newlywed and six months into her marriage, Denise had her first liver transplant at 25 years old. The love of her life, Steve stood by her side, along with the rest of her family during the months she spent in the hospital. Yes, months...the first liver did not take to her body so well, in fact, it was rejected and she had another transplant the same month December of 1990.

The years flew by with out a was good... Denise became a mom to two beautiful daughters and added Eli, their loving Norwegian Buhund to the family. The perfect family, some would say. Blessed to be a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, godmother and friend. Denise has touched the lives of so many, in so many ways- all the while never once losing faith.

Today, Denise is in need of two surgeries: One to remove a cancerous tumor on her kidney and another for liver transplant. Denise will beat this; she has done it before and will rise above these circumstances and do it again. Denise and her family need to be able to focus only on her health and getting better ASAP, but due to the health care system, insurance etc. it is nearly impossible to cover all of the expenses for such major surgery.

Being the family and friends of Denise we just LOVE her and want her well no matter what the cost. Money should be the least of her worries, so we set up this site to help raise money to cover some of the medical expenses Denise and her family will incur. Not only do we need donations we NEED THE POWER OF PRAYER. No amount or wish is too small!

Thank you to each and every one of you reading this.
