After an unexpected emergency room visit, perforated colon, and emergency surgery that had a 50/50 chance of survival, Mandy has pulled through and is now on her healing journey. A wife to Kirk and mother of Max, who is three, Mandy is taking the steps to heal her body including rest, diet changes, home health nurse care, and lifestyle changes. Her work as a doula, supporting pregnant and postpartum mothers, has been put on hold for a year due to her upcoming follow up surgeries need to heal after these surgeries. Any help to support this family who is trying to make it on a single income will go toward paying for medical bills and follow up care. Help this wife, mother, and all around good person get back to being a supportive community worker!
