Thank you for stopping by our page. We are raising money on behalf of a very dear boss, pastor, and most importantly dear friend who is having a major surgery in the next two weeks.
Randy Leinen lives in California and is a wonderful husband, dad of two grown kids and an adoring grandfather of two little boys. Medical struggles are not new to him (he has M.S.), but we’re reaching out for help for him as he prepares for a very dangerous aortic replacement surgery on May 27, 2020. Our goal is to help the family with all related expenses such as medical, rental of a condo. in Texas so the family can be nearby, etc.
Randy’s aorta was repaired in 2008 during an emergency surgery to save his life after an aortic dissection. In that one year, he had 4 ER visits, 7 surgeries, 40 plus days in the hospital, and countless doctor visits, medical tests and therapy visits.
Over the twelve years since then his aorta has grown to the point at which the entire aorta, from the arch near the heart to the place it splits to supply the two legs, has increased in size and is in danger of bursting.
The aorta will be removed, and then a replacement of synthetic material will be inserted and then re-implanted to all of the arteries supplying his lungs, spine, abdominal organs, kidneys, etc. This will be a very delicate surgery!

We so appreciate any monetary contribution you can make, but even more important are your prayers for Randy and his family during this very challenging time. Thank you! May God bless you richly!
