Isaac's Snake Bite Deductible

"A normal, playful summer day for a 4-year-old Lusby boy took an abrupt turn Aug. 27 after a copperhead snake bit his leg while he was retrieving a ball in his backyard."*  Thanks to the miracle of medicine, including the many knowledgeable and caring medical professionals, Isaac is 100% recovered!  His family, and all of us, are grateful for this wonderful blessing!

Now we can be part of another blessing for this special family.  The anti-venom alone cost $60,000, and the total medical expenses are around $100,000.  The final deductible for this young family is estimated to be $6,000.   With the holidays upon us, that puts a strain on Santa's elves. 

This page was created by friends and co-workers of Isaac and his loving family.  Our hope is that together we can provide them with a Christmas surprise they never saw coming! 

Any donations in excess of the final deductible will be donated to "Shriners Hospitals for Children".

We know Isaac and his family will appreciate your love and support.
