I'm posting this against my sisters wishes, but frankly, she gives so much of herself to others that I feel like it's time for her to be on the receiving end. My 9 month old niece, Makena has to go in for surgery this week. Ever since she was born, she has had intestinal problems. To make a long story short, she is going in for a biopsy because the Dr's suspect she may have a disorder called Hirschsprungs disease, which is a nerve condition that causes problems with being able to pass stools. Read more about it here. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hirschsprungs-disease/basics/definition/con-20027602
My sister and her husband have had more than their fair share of medical battles, and all the bills that come with it, not to mention that my brother-in-law is currently out of a job, not by choice. They have to come up with $6000.00 by this Wednesday for thier deductible. Ridiculous... I know. They have a little in savings, but it will wipe that right out. I know that there are good-hearted people out there who are willing to help and that know and love my sister (almost) as much as I do. Please find it in your hearts to donate what you can, if you can. And please feel free to share this on your page if you know someone that knows my sister and might want to help.

My sister is going to be so mad at me for doing this...But I'm older than her... and it will be worth it.
