Help Stephanie get well

Our family has been hit with a large struggle with Stephanie's health recently. What started as a simple infection snowballed into something much larger. She ended up having to go through emergency surgery that resulted in taking very large portions of tissue on her leg, stomach, and groin. After which she went into cardiac arrest. After an 18-day coma it was necessary to give her a tracheotomy.

But our fighter isn't going to let that stop her. She is currently in a specialty hospital relearning how to do several activities, and making large strides towards getting healthy. The recovery time is estimated to be three to six months in hospital. Followed by a large amount of time at home.

The help we are in need of pertains to travel costs to consistently see her, as she is hours away from the closest family member. Also, with her condition, for her to be able to come home and not have to be in a nursing home, there are certain supplies needed and changes have to be made so that her daughter is capable of taking care of her in her own home. Which at the moment is Stephanie's greatest wish... Just to come home.

Thank you for your time, and any donations. Our family appreciate your generosity and consideration.
