Support for Andrew’s surgery

My 2 year old grand-baby, Andrew will be undergoing Brain Surgery on 2/26/18. This campaign is to support my daughter and son-in-law as they prepare for Andrew’s unexpected surgery.  

Andrew has been hospitalized 3 times already this year due to what started out as a virus. After 4 weeks with no improvement, there was a new concern for neurological involvement. 

Back in May, he was diagnosed with a Chiari 1 Malformation. This causes compression of the brain and spinal cord leading to intense headaches that cause him to bang his head, pull at his ears and hair, along with many other complications. 

My  daughter has had to suspend work indefinitely to care for  Andrew and take him to numerous doctors appointments at Mass. General Hospital. Her husband has also missed numerous work days and will be out additional days for Andrew’s Brain Surgery.  

Please keep my sweet grand-baby, and our family  in your thoughts and prayers. 

My daughter and son-in-law are not the type to ask for help so this is my way of trying to help support them. 

Any contribution of any amount will be greatly appreciated. This will help ease some of stress associated with Andrew’s medical bills, travel costs during surgery, cost of living expenses and household bills.
