Our family has struggled through many medical challenges over the last couple years. Recently we found that my wife Amanda will need a panendectomy. We will soon travel to Charleston South Carolina where 1 of only 5 doctors in America can perform this surgery .This is a high risk surgery in which they will remove the pancreas completely and attempt to relocate Islets from the pancreas to the liver to produce insulin As if that were not enough yesterday we found our 12 year old daughter has long QT syndrome which causes her heart to go out of rhythm and will require life long medication a pacemaker or both. We will also have to have a defibulator on hand because this can cause sudden death. We are struggling mentally, emotionally and financially as none of this was ever expected and is overwhelming. With Amanda out of work and myself disabled from my military service in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am left with no other option than to ask for your help in saving our family. We are a very proud family and I would never ask if there was any other option. If you cant give to help that is very understable. Please give a prayer our way because we need the help of our lord to overcome this and bring some miracles our way. Amanda is a loving , giving mother of 2 and 3 step children. She loves spending time with her daughter and having Mother/ Daughter days. She is a terrific grandmother and loved by 6 wonderful grandchildren. Even in her worst times of illness she still brings joy and laughter to all of us.Cassie has always been a mess. Lol She loves hunting, fishing and riding motorcycles. She is our wild child and she is so scared for her mommy and now for herself. So if you find it in your heart to help please do. It will be very much appreciated and used by a family in true need. Thank you for reading and please share with your friends on facebook. We cant do this alone.
