Carin’s Fight

Carin has been in a 3 year fight to overcome an infection that was hindered by mesh that was used for a hernia years ago. They did not just use a little mesh it was double layered across her whole abdominal area.  After several surgeries and living on a pic line for almost 1 1/2 years  the local doctors and surgeons could not fix what was going on and referred her to the Mayo Clinic. She has since made 6 trips out there from Michigan and will need to make about 6 more before this is finished. She is retired and her insurance will only cover so much. The last stay was 15 days, that is 15 days at a motel for her husband, gas, and meals, and prescriptions that her insurance wont cover. The last one was $1000.00. She is making good progress with the treatments and surgeries at Mayo but the expenses are adding up and she really needs a miracle to be able to keep the schedule the surgeons have laid out in her care plan. Before all of this came to be this woman swam 100 miles at the YMCA. She is very fit for a 70 year old which has helped her complete the rigorous schedule of surgeries to  regain her health but we have a ways to go. She has used all of her savings everything is maxed out. Your donation will allow her to finish the fight, and have victory... she is so close.  Thank you for considering us. Thank you for your prayers.
