Help Support the Saunders

Bob and Lori had to make an emergency trip to California to visit their youngest son Alex, who at 26 years old is fighting for his life. What started as a foot injury, led to an infection that has now reached his heart. Doctors are doing everything they can to clear the infection in order to prevent open heart surgery, and ultimately keep the infection from spreading to his brain. 

A situation like this not only takes an emotional toll, but comes with a tremendous financial burden. To get there as soon as possible, they have already incurred airline, hotel, and living expenses that have left them with unexpected credit card debt. Added to this, Bob and Lori have both had to take time off work which greatly limits their income and with 5 children still at home this has turned their life upside down.

Our goal is to relieve the financial pressure.
We would like to get the funds to them as soon as possible so they can:
1) Pay off travel related expenses that have been put on credit cards
2) Continue to be with Alex while he's in this critical state
3) Return home with some funds to help make up what was lost during time off.

We also ask that you continue to pray for Alex, Bob, Lori, and the rest of the Saunders family during this difficult and trying time.

Any amount given is helpful and we can't thank you enough.
