Adrienne and Morgann Dahlgreen (now Adrienne Johnson and Morgann Jensen) have been such an avid part of our lives since childhood.
It seems that any traumatic thing that has happened to our family or friend circle they are always the first ones there to stand by, volunteer and hold our hands.
Adrienne’s 2 year old daughter Josie has been battling a rare heart issue since birth and they have traveled to Boston Children’s Hospital from Alaska for a life-saving surgery.
They chose Boston since the vascular surgeon is the best in the world and Josie’s largest artery coming off her heart and one of the heart branches were in the opposite place that it should be.
Since Josie’s artery was in the wrong spot it was causing her to choke and cause tracheomalacia (a condition that causes a collapse and narrowing of the airway) which made it difficult and at times impossible for Josie to eat food without choking or risk aspirating on food with each bite when she did eat.
After surgery, Josie became septic so what was supposed to be a 10-14 day stay has ended up being at least a month out of Alaska in the hospital. Currently they are still in Boston.
Hotels are not covered by their insurance so now the family has experienced mounting financial costs due to these unexpected medical complications, fraudulent charges to their credit card for several thousand dollars from a hotel, and being so far away from their home for a lengthy period of time.
We are asking for your compassion and consideration of donating to this family and to Josie during this difficult time.
Thank you for any help you can give.
