She needs surgery to get a pacemaker/defibrillator type device that will help her heart beat more normally and hopefully help to relieve her fatigue and shortness of breath. She has had to go on temporary disability because working even part time has become impossible. Her husband George would like to be able to take time off to help care for her after the surgery and get her back on her feet. She will not be able to drive or lift her arms for several weeks after the device is implanted. Her medical bills have been piling up for years and she is having trouble keeping up with the insurance costs required to keep her maintain the coverage that covers the specialists needed for her care.
Eden and George both work with special needs kids, providing support and learning programs that help them attend school and learn important life skills. Its important work, but like many service and teaching jobs it is often hard to cover the costs of extenuating circumstances such as these. Helping Eden and George at this time would provide them needed relief to get some of the medical costs covered and help them get back on their feet and past this difficult medical juncture. Your help and kindness would help get them out from under the growing medical bills and give them a little breathing room to take the time they need to get over this hurdle.
We are hopeful that with this device Eden will be able to regain some of her previous strength and stamina and her heart and life will be protected from a more dramatic event with the defibrillator in place. More than anything we want her to lead a more normal life once again and be able to shine her bright light for everyone she meets.
Thank you for your consideration, care and support.
