Chemo/medical expenses

We are reaching out for help for a few reasons. First, Our 16 year old daughter,  Lainey has been diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia (her bone marrow doesn't produce enough blood cells for her body, closely related to Leukemia).  The most successful treatment option is a bone marrow transplant.  With God's provision and sovereignty, her 4 year old sister, Eleah is a perfect donor match.  Chemotherapy will likely cause her to lose her hair, she would like to get some wigs or wraps to help her feel better with that process.  Another side effect from chemo is that her eggs could possibly be damaged, thus effecting her chances of getting pregnant in the future.  We are  meeting with a fertility specialist to talk about freezing/preserving her eggs.  This is something that is INCREDIBLY important to Lainey, and is a VERY EXPENSIVE process not covered by insurance.  I am looking into a  handful of resources to help with the cost, but because she does not have a cancer diagnosis she may not qualify for help from these organizations.    In 2016 my husband, Bob was medically retired from the police department due to an on duty crash and a PTSD  diagnosis. At this time he is not able to work.  He will be having his 3 rd neck surgery on October 25 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  I will have to take off work for at least a couple months while he recovers.  Since it is a workman's comp case every appointment has to be in Tulsa, which is about a 6 hour drive and is an overnight stay each time.  Last surgery he had to travel back and forth about every 2 weeks for follow up appointments.  Thank you for taking the time to read our story we appreciate any prayers and we are confident that God is in control and are trusting in His provision. May He bless you and each of your families.
