Harlow's Journey to Philadelphia

Harlow was born with a genetic mutation that makes her pancreas secrete excess amounts of insulin no matter how high or low her blood sugar is. This disease is called congenital hyperinsulinism. We are lucky that she can be cured of this with a partial pancreatectomy. To have this surgery we are being medically transported to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We are not the type of people to ask for money, but with with a large medical bill looming which will use up most of our savings, we are in need of help for travel expenses while we are in Philadelphia. Anything helps. Also if anything is left over we would like to donate to the Congenital Hyperinsulinism International foundation. Thank You!
