Fix Caili's Brain

As many of you know, my daughter Caili Ogle suffers from Epilepsy. Unfortunately hers is the type that doesn't always respond well to medication.  After more than 4 years of never going more than 6 months without seizures, her doctors have recommended surgery, 2 surgeries.
In the past 3 years, Caili has incurred more that 35K dollars in medical bills (with good employer sponsored insurance) due to multiple hospitalizations, ER visits and deductibles and co-pays. This does not include lost wages from missed work (yes she works fulltime).
Caili is schelduled for her first surgery on Fri 10/20 followed by 7 days in ICU, and the second surgery on Fri 10/27.  She is expected to be released around the 30th or 31st. She will come home to my house for approximately a week of recovery, followed by 8 to 12 weeks at home.
I am taking a week and a half off to help Caili for her first days out of the hospital, and will miss approximately 15 shifts of work, and as a foodserver this is also a bit of a financial strain.
So as my family faces this medical situation, I'm asking for a little help. If you are unable to give, I request all of your positive thoughts and healing energy coming our way this month.
