Financial Assistance during Vennas recovery

Donation protected
Venna was born 12/17/2014 with all the odds against her- she has over come obstacle after obstacle during these 7 years. Unfortunately she has hit a bump, what was thought to be her normal time of the year hospitalization Venna was diagnosed with severe septic shock, streptococcus pneumonia, bacterial meningitis, stroke and most recently has had some complications coming off of the ventilator. She is in good hands as the doctors taking care of her know her and know what she's capable of over coming. With their help and prayers she again is going to beat all this and show the world what being a Trisomy 13 child is all about!! She is a warrior for sure!
Financially though the next few weeks will be tough for Brie and Gordon as one of them is always in the PICU with Venna and the other needs to be with Rayna, while Gordon has FMLA through work he does not get paid while being out.
I am asking that if you are able to contribute you do what you can with Venna sending you a huge thank you for letting her parents never leave her side so that she can continue to hear them day in and day out. If you can not contribute financially we understand I am also going to be attaching the mealtrain link; maybe a meal would be better suited for you and if neither I ask that you send her a prayer.
1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
