Aunt Bonne's heart transplant fund

My name is Jennifer and I am reaching out for my Aunt Yvonne or, as my son calls her "Aunt Bonne". 10 years ago she was put on a pace maker, due to an "electrical" problem, as the doctor described it. A strong muscle but slow heart beat. What a difference that made.
Fast forward 10 years, now her heart muscle has deteriorated and functioning at 20% at best. Right around Christmas 2014 we recived news that a heart transplant was her only option. Thankfully for now she has been able to continue to work as a surgical technologist, but the time when she won't be able to work is quickly approaching. I am setting up this Go Fund Me page for her to help with expenses  that won't go on hold and for future medications that come with the transplant, as she could soon be admitted to the hospital for the long haul. In just a few weeks she will begin treatment that will continuously deliver medicne directly to her heart, through a Hickman Line. This will stay in place as she waits for a heart to become available. Due to her O positive blood type she could be in for a very long wait. She is a universal donor but unfortunately she can only recieve an O positive heart.  Any donation big or small would be HUGE. Yvonne would never ask for help from anyone but I know she needs it and I want to help. She is a loving mother, daughter, sister and of course the BEST Aunt Bonne ever!

Thank you in advance for your support, thoughts and of course prayers!
