Help the Adams Family with Medical Expenses

Many people know our family online as Tatting Corner, or if you're local to Anderson, Indiana, we're the Craft Corner in Chesterfield.  My husband, Chuck (pictured above at Palmetto Tat Days in 2018), is scheduled to undergo triple or quadruple bypass surgery on October 26, and he'll be off work for at least 3 months after the surgery.  We are lucky in that he has short term disability benefits through work, so we'll be getting 2/3 of his normal salary, and we have excellent insurance - but we will certainly hit the out of pocket maximum for both 2021 and 2022 for the surgery and the after care.  There is no cushion to manage the additional medical bills, as I put everything I earn back into the business to help expand it and find new things to offer to you, and the short paychecks will only pay our bills and feed the family.  Without your assistance, Tatting Corner and the Craft Corner are both at risk of closing, as I would need to return to the workforce to earn the additional money that the hospitals will demand, and that we don't have the means to pay, even on a payment arrangement.  Please understand, Tatting Corner and the Craft Corner are absolutely doing fine.  It's just a matter of not wanting to bleed the businesses for these medical bills, so that the businesses don't suffer.  We are already being hit with demands to pay current medical bills, so it's becoming an urgent issue for us.
