Carol's medical expenses

Carol DeGeest had surgery back in 2002 for hernias. She had a mesh  put in to help seal up the six hernias. Now the mesh has created a hole in her abdomen called a fistula and has caused stomach acid to leak into her body causing sickness, pain, and damage to her flesh. She has to wear an ostomy bag to catch the fluid. Unfortunately insurance will not pay for enough bags to cover her needs for the month along with additional medical co-pay expenses. The bags are too expensive to purchase the rest needed. She will have to wear these bags until she has the surgery to remove the mesh and part of her intestine  sometime next year.
 
We are asking for donations to help her pay for her medical expenses to make this difficult journey a little easier, so she can change her bags  when necessary.
 
Thank you so much to all who are willing to pray and or donate to this 
important cause.
