Coras going to Denver

     Our beautiful daughter Cora and our family needs your help once more. She will be having surgery this summer to close her colostomy and vesicostomy. This will allow her to empty her bladder and bowels in the "correct" manner. This will also be her 9th surgery in just two short years. But our girl is strong and this should be her last one for quite a while.
      This time our journey will take us to Denver, Colorado where Cora amazing surgeon has moved to from Ohio.  We went there just last month for Coras last surgery and we are so happy that it is so much closer for us to get to. 
       Coras surgery is estimated to be 6 hours long but her recovery will be difficult. We will be staying in the hospital for about a week and then we will need to stay in Denver for a month after for clinical appointments and to complete a bowel management program.
     That's where you come in. We would like to be able to rent a home to let our family be together. Our other three children will be out of school for the summer and have already been without their parents and sister for 8 weeks of the last year and it has taken a toll on them and our family. We would also need help with travel expenses and some medical ones as well. Not to mention my husband being out of work for the time we are gone. It all adds up and we could use the help. 
     So please help our family stay together while our daughter gets the life-changing medical care she needs. We appreciate it so much, it means everything to us. Thank you.
