Bride has Stroke on Honeymoon Fund

Joseph and Francheska met just over 8 years ago at their local church. It was love at first sight! They have been working all these years to save for the perfect wedding which they celebrated on the 7/10/18 with friends and family. It was such an amazing celebration.

They set off for their 3 week honeymoon touring the U.S.A. On the 2nd day of their honeymoon  in NYC Joe found Fran unconscious in the gym! She was rushed to hospital. The doctors told Joe that Francheska had suffered from multiple strokes! Francheska has undergone 3 major brain surgeries to reduce the swelling. Which is now only the start of the recovery. 

Joe has been informed that it will be a 3-4 month recovery state side as it is impossible for Francheska to travel. Joe will  need help with  accommodation , hospital fees (we all know the U.S.A health system is expensive), rehab costs, living expenses.  Most of the costs are upfront and we want to help Francheska and Joe get through this horrific time. We also want to make sure after this terrible event they wont struggle when they return home. Joe also just bought their first home in Sydney's West as well which they were planning to move into after their honeymoon. This is another cost he has to think about while he is looking after his bride. We want to eliminate all the financial stress for this beautiful couple so they can focus on Francheska's recovery!

We will be praying non stop and ask that you can help contribute what ever you can. #prayerforFrancheska




***** UPDATE 16/10/18 ******

Thank you for all the support thus far, and generous giving! We have had word from family that the medical costs are really tally up. We are stepping out in faith and have increased the financial goal. We are in prayer that there will be a miracle physically for Francheska and prayer that we as a community can be a blessing financially. Please share this post and make it go viral!  #prayerforFrancheska
