In 2011 Laurie had to go in for surgery for a benign tumour attached to her pancreas and other organs. Post surgery she developed a fistula which prevented her incision from healing properly. After about a year of changing bandages three times a day she had a surgery to have it fixed. Over the course of these events her lungs have become severely damaged and is bound to an oxygen supply. On a few occasions we have come close to losing Laurie. She is in line and waiting a lung transplant surgery. We are all praying for it. I've created this go fund me account because it will help her and my father get through this tough time in their lives. Any donation big or small will go a long way for them. Over the years this has created financial hardship for my father, these donations will go towards travel and accommodation costs. Thank you.
