Katherine's Surgeries

I have five autoimmune diseases and chronic asthma, which makes me susceptible to infection. Over the past 14 months I suffered a string of infections starting with Scarlet Fever and ending with Nodular Pneumonia, all of which weekend my heart as a muscle and caused Supraventrical Tachycardia. I'm having a catheter ablation in November to correct this issue with my heart, and hopefully that will be successful and I won't have to repeat the procedure. In February and March (if my heart heals as planned) I'm having six other surgeries and a biopsy, the other surgeries will be on my nose and sinuses to hopefully help prevent future recurrent and long stints of infections that lead to pneumonia, and on my gums to repair damage caused by undiagnosed Celiac disease, and the biopsy will be performed on my small intestine to also access the damage caused by Celiac. 

**Bonus (not calculated into goal amount above) I also need to fly back to Dallas to visit my cardiologist and electrophysiologist, in December, to check that my heart is healing. And I'd love to be able to attend my Uncle's wedding on December 7th in Northern California. **

The amount above won't cover everything, as is always the case with medical expenses, they can only provide an estimate and the final charges are often much more. I didn't want to aim too high and deter potential donors from contributing. If we could raise even a portion of this it'd help my husband and I out tremendously and I'd be able to continue  with my surgeries without delay.

Looking forward to putting all of this behind me and moving on to a brighter and healthier future, with your help. Thank you so much for your contribution, and for helping me network this fundraiser.
