Double Blessings

This very wonderful family has two of the most amazing children with separate, unrelated medical conditions.  Tanner (14), now in a wheelchair full time, has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Pria (18) suffers from a rare form of reoccurring respiratory papillomatosis, and has undergone over 95 throat surgeries.  They are both raised by the most loving and supportive parents you will ever meet!  However, given the magnitude of their conditions, their full-time care has taken an emotional and financial toll on this sweet family. 
     I have known this inspirational bunch for more than 10 years, and know that they spend every dime with responsible consideration.  Your contribution -- of any size -- will allow them some breathing room, and a chance for their kids to have more of their medical needs met.  There are plane trips, hotel stays, co-payments, and doctor visits -- all of which are out-of-pocket expenses. 
    Pria will continue to have surgeries every 3-7 weeks (to clear her airway) unless a cure is found, and Tanner takes a daily regimen of medications and supplements not covered by insurance.  Both parents work tirelessly to ensure the best possible lives for their two angels.  

Thank you for reading and considering an amount that will offer some much-needed relief!
