Jean Taylor's Medical Fund

On October 22nd, Jean was admitted to the ICU at Mercy Hospital in Muskegon with sepsis (staph infection in her blood) and abscesses in her spine. It was also eventually found that she had fluid around her brain that was causing severe confusion. She had emergency surgery that Monday morning to remove the large abscess from her lumbar region, as it was compromising her spinal cord. She has since had 2 more surgeries to remove abscesses from her thoracic region and neck. Up until last Thursday, it was not known if she would survive this illness.

She is currently still in the hospital at Mercy in Muskegon and will be there until the infection is under control. She is also currently undergoing PT and OT to regain her strength and motor function. She will be going home with an antibiotic pump which she will have for a month and then may be on oral antibiotics indefinitely after that. She may also have to travel to Muskegon weekly for recheck MRI's of her spine to make sure the abscesses don't return. She will require home health care for a period of time.

My parents are helpers. They both volunteer for various community organizations and give what time, money, and items they can to help just about anyone who asks. They rarely ask for help and didn't in this case, but I know that my mom's high insurance deductible has already been met and between that, anything the insurance doesn't cover, my dad's missed work time, gas/food while in Muskegon, etc; they will be looking at AT LEAST thousands of dollars in debt to repay. So, I am asking for your help because I know they won't.

Please consider donating to help this very giving couple in their time of need. Thank you!
