Innerst Family Expenses Fund

Dean Innerst was hospitalized at the beginning of November for a relatively routine procedure and experienced one complication after another, requiring 18 sugeries since that time.  He has remained at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, which comes to at least 60 days he has been away from his family and work.  The Innerst family owns a small dairy farm so Dean's medical problems have had a huge impact on their livelihood and bills are starting to mount.  In addition to medical fees, there are costs for transportation to the hospital for his family (which is a 45 mile drive) , not to mention the stress on his wife, daughter, and son to maintain the farm.   Dean will soon be discharged to a long term acute care facililty.  Depending on the location of the facility, there may be lodging costs for Dean's wife, Becky, who is trying her best to balance being at hospital and  work.  Those of us who know the family know them to be hard-working and humble.  They often put others before themselves and live a simple life that many of us envy; however, now they need our support.  Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated.  Prayers are helpful too.
