Healing Bethany

Hi friends,
My best friend April’s daughter Bethany is in critical care. 
She is 30 years old and had suffered a heart attack last week. She did not improve and now was diagnosed with Myocarditis/heart failure. 
She has been critical for days with low stats, fluid on her lungs, and now her heart is functioning at 20% capacity. 
She could not be cared for at the hopital
she was at and was transferred by plane yesterd to St. Louise MO.  Barnes Jewish Hospital.
Today she will undergo a procedure of EMCO, which is a machine that will be inserted by/in her heart to assist with its function. 
There is no cure and the hope is, that Bethany’s heart will begin to function better and her bodies immune system will stop attacking her heart. 
My best friend April and her husband abruptly  packed thier bags and left thier home, driving 6 hours to be with thier daughter. They are under immense financial stress as they are both disabled. Her husband with a brain injury and April with a significant heart disability as well as physical limitations. 
They will be staying in a hotel for a minimum of a week and need provisions. 
I am thankful you took time to read this. We need your prayers first and foremost. We need a healing for Bethany! 
We welcome any donation that’s put on your heart to help this family in what would be the most agonizing experience of having a sick child. 
I pray we can ease thier financial burden of hotel, gas, and meal expenses. 
Please also say a prayer for the entire family as they are so emotionally taxed as well as April, her mother who has a life threatening heart condition as well. 
God bless and thank you!
