Erin Tinney's medical expenses

As most of you know, my daughter Erin Tinney has dealt with lifelong health issues.  She was born with several congenital defects to her heart with a bad heart valve and the complications from that having lasted throughout her life.  She has had 6 open-heart surgeries to advance and improve her life.  Her last surgery was in 2008.

Infortunately Erin's health has turned for the worse this past year.  She is currently on her 5th hospitalization in the last 6 months and will be having another one in August.  She lives in Flroida and because of her rare condition, has had treatments in Gainesville and Jacksonville, Florida.  She wasn't getting the proper care for her condition and is now seeing her lifelong doctor in San Francisco, California.

The numerous hospital stays in multiple cities has placed a monetary hardship on Erin and her husband, John.  They have had to deal with plane tickets, hotel rooms, miscellaneous expenses, and already $25,000 in out-of-pocket medical bills from just her one stay in Jacksonville.  Even though they have medical insurance, they will have many more out-of-pocket medical bills coming in over the next 6 months.  To add to this finacial strain, Erin has used up all her leave from her job and now will not be paid when she is not working.

I am sending this to ask for any donations that might help Erin and John to be able to focus entirely on Erin's health and recovery and not the monetary hardship they are encountering and will continue to encounter over the coming years.

I thank you for any donation that you can help them with.  Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
