I am Tristan‘s brother who lives in Colorado. Like many others, my brother‘s family had just started to get back on their feet after Covid, and just as things started to go back to normal, their oldest child was exposed to Covid through school. The full story is below, but the short of it is that the youngest daughter, who was too young to be vaccinated, ended up with a severe case of double pneumonia caused by Covid. At a time when they were already struggling to make ends meet, this means additional medical expenses, childcare expenses, and stress. It seems that Makenna will pull through, but they are underwater in bills and can use any help they can get.
