Charlie and Family

Charlie's husband learned yesterday that he has sudden complete kidney failure. While they do have insurance, they have a lot to pay in co-payments and deductibles. The insurance they have also requires them to pay 20 % of any dialysis treatment. With all the lab work, ultrasounds, x-rays, and doctor visits they have had lately, it is becoming impossible for them to keep up. 

Her husband, Ryan, was admitted through the ER today because his lab work from this morning came back critical.  He is currently in emergency dialysis. The hospital bill is going to add exponentially to what they are already drowning in, and there will be no way they can pay. Also, when he doesn't work, he doesn't get paid. They are going to struggle with bills .

Charlie and Ryan are both really hard workers. They have six children who they work to provide for every day. The kids range in age from 4 years to 17 years. They are great parents and always try to do the best they can for their kids. You can imagine what it takes to provide for them all, including food, clothing, day care, sports, and the oldest has a car that needs gas and insurance. 

These people are super caring and do whatever they can to help out friends and the community all the time. Charlie would give her last dime to help anyone, and I've seen her do it - I've even been the recipient sometimes.   She gives her time and effort to help anyone as well. I've been witness to this for years, as I work with her. 

Charlie is a loving and giving Educational Assistant who wants to be there for her students. She gives her all in every way, every day. She is so worried about Ryan right now and how they will pay to keep him alive. Please consider helping these wonderful members of the Las Cruces community.
