Foofer and Family Memorial

Hi!  I am Tyler Thorpe, and I am writing on behalf of my family who are in the midst of fighting alongside our mother, Wendrika ”Foofer” Thorpe, while she battles the end stages of liver cirrhosis.

It goes without saying that we are deeply committed to this cause, but we are learning that the medical bills are growing quicker than we anticipated. That, coupled with our fathers loss of wages while he takes the lead role in tending to her, has quickly made paying the bills a major secondary issue. So, we need your help!

Our mother was admitted to the hospital on January 20th after fighting what we thought was severe flu for roughly 3 weeks. Two weeks later, she was officially diagnosed with end stage liver cirrhosis, and she quickly chose to continue her battle in the comfort of her own home. However, within a few days of being home her progress began to diminish, and things have unfortunately continued to decline since then.

The money we are hoping to raise here will be used to address:
- Hospital bills incurred during her 15 day stay
- The antibiotics, medications, and medical supplies now required for her to fight this battle in the comfort of her own home.
- My parents rent 

We appreciate all of the prayers, kind words, and love that has already come our way, and I want to personally thank each and every one of you who pledge your hard earned money to help my family during this time. Please feel free to reach out with any questions you have about our journey. Never take any day for granted, smile often, and love fiercely!
