A Mother's Love & Prayer Isn't always Enough

Hello. My name is Heather, for those that don't know me. I am here to raise money for my son John who will be undergoing a major neurological  surgery called a craniotomy  with fenestration to relieve pressure on his brain from a cyst.  John has been having episodes of syncope and has been going through multiple tests over the last year to try to get an answer as to what has been causing this which has already financially stressed his family as he is unable to put in a full weeks' work due to his episodes. My daughter in law works full time but is also expecting a child in June which will take her out of work for some time as well. They are both very proud individuals and hardly ask for assistance from anyone, however with him having surgery and her due date being so close together, they are going to be in an even more financially stressful situation. Any money raised will go directly to their finances to keep them from going into debt. They already live a modest lifestyle and have made whatever cutbacks they can make in order to make ends meet.  I am often the one on here donating but today I have to stand on the other side and request that our friends and family help these two out in a very hard time of their lives. Every penny will be greatly appreciated and put to good use. God Bless You and Thank You.
