Jill's Heart Surgery Fund

Jill is a wonderful mother, daughter and wife from New Braunfels, TX who has always opened her home to everyone and most days you will find her house full of teenagers enjoying her incredible warmth and kindness.  Many of you know Jill but most of you will be surprised to learn that Jill has a rare form of Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.  Jill lost her beloved sister to this disease and now Jill’s heart has exhausted all other means of aid in healing and it is now necessary for her to undergo open-heart surgery. 

Jill’s family needs help with the huge financial burden they are facing.  The Heart Surgeon that will do this surgery is in Minneapolis and needs Jill to fly there for tests initially that will last 3 days then back for the surgery.  Jill just received an appointment for October 28th and we hope and pray that these tests will prove that she is able to endure the open-heart surgery.  Since this Heart Surgeon is out of network with her insurance company Jill will need to pay a great deal out of pocket.  We can not anticipate knowing the amount this family will need but, for now, please lets try to gather enough funds to cover her flights, travel expenses, accommodations and some of the very high medical expenses so that Jill can focus on preparing for this surgery and healing. Even if you cannot donate, please keep Jill in your thoughts and prayers and please spread this message as far as it can go.

 Anything will help and is greatly appreciated!!

Linda Wilber, a close family friend
