Open Heart Surgery

Earlier this year after struggling with repeated shortness of breath and generally feeling sick, Michelle sought medical relief. Following several doctor visits and diagnosis, Michelle was assessed by 3 heart specialists resulting in a diagnosis of Rheumatic Heart Disease.
The appropriate course of action is lifesaving open heart surgery to replace a faulty heart valve immediately. Surgery is scheduled October 30th.  Michelle is a 39 yr old working mother of 2.  She had to leave her job a mouth ago because the symptoms of the disease was to much.
Bella  is in the 1st grade at the Way right Elementary school and plays star soccer for the town.
Cameron is in the 6th grade at Belmont Middle school and he plays star soccer for the town. He also plays on pop warner football. The money raise will help with medical expenses not covered, the INR machine  to monitor blood levels on a daily basis and any other expenses that will occur during her recovery . Expenses that no family need to take on especially with the holidays right around the corner. Thank you
