Laura's Medical Expenses

Some of you may know,  that our wonderful friend and co-worker Laura Kuemmerle has been diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis Stage IV cirrrosis.  She is always the first person to help others that are in need.  She did not ask for help - I talked her in to letting her friends so something to help her as she always does for us.  Her medical team says there is not much of a treatment for the disease,  except for a liver transplant.  She has been traveling back and forth from their home in New Mexico to Phoenix at Mayo Clinic,  where she has been going through the gammit of testing to determine the best treatment plan for her.   As of today, the hepatologist and surgeon feel her symptoms are far worse than they anticipated and with her liver shrinking, they feel that she will progress rapidly as time passes.  They have recommended that she stop working and want her closer to her medical team to keep an eye on her sypmtoms and for current labwork.  What this means, is that she and Dan will be relocting to Phoenix for her medical care, treatment and hopefully a quick transplant.  Please consider donating to this fund to help Laura and Dan with the cost of medical care, treatment, lost wages for both of them, travel and relocating expenses.  Laura  is always so positive and is doing such an amazing job of continuing this through this very stressful and difficult time.   As you have all experienced, she is always so kind hearted and such a generous person, now its time that we return her kindness and help her and her family.  If you can not donate, please send her well wishes and pray for her.  We will try to keep you updated as we can.
