1. Offset some of Prescription needed- Even though the insurance provided by the military has been outstanding- there are still some co-pays with the medications for when she is allowed to go home.
2. Offset traveling arrangements- The nearest Hospital for Makayla is 86 miles away from where the Redmons live. Between mike and his wife traveling back and forth from where they live, (near Camp Pendleton- where mike is stationed), to the Hospital in Los Angeles, gas and wear and tear of their vehicles pile up. To give an example with in the last six months they have spent $1,960 just on going to and from the hospital.
3. Offset food costs while in the Hospital- Mike and Laura take turns being in the hospital. Due to Mike's work and their son going to school, they alternate staying on Makayla's bedside. They really have no choice but to buy food in the hospital's cafeteria or local fast food joints spending around $5,200 extra just on food for the last six months so they can be at Makayla's bedside.
Makayla and Mike's relationship as father/daughter is one that really tears me up. Makayla, a true hero for the conflicts she has overcome and Makayla's hero, her Dad Mike, serving his country honorably thru numerous conflicts. I am proud to have Mike and his family in my life. I am asking for your support to help offset these costs so they can focus on the Mission on hand and not have to worry about how they are going to survive all the bills.
