Jonathan's Emergency Eye Surgery

Today my brother-in-law, Jonathan Spurrier, went to the eye doctor after a few days of blurry vision followed by a scary realization this morning after waking up that he could not see his wife out of the corner of his right eye. The eye doctor examined Jonathan's eye and immediately insisted he go see a specialist right away, because his retina was apparently detached from his eye. The eye specialist then said he needed emergency surgery for "retinal detachment with vitrectomy" right away or else he would go blind. At this moment Jonathan said he wanted to cry but couldn't or else he would risk hurting himself further. Can you imagine?! Later this evening Jonathan and Rachel endured several hours of phone calls desperately searching for a place where Jonathan could have his surgery in network affordably. Sadly, Jonathan cannot afford this surgery as their insurance requires their full out of pocket maximum! This is far out of their reach, and yet he is required to have this surgery NOW! PLEASE HELP IN ANY WAY THAT YOU POSSIBLY CAN! Jonathan is a stay at home dad to my beautiful baby niece and a youth pastor. His wife is a child psychologist. Together they have touched countless lives for the better in so many beautiful, wonderful ways. Now it is our turn to help Pastor Jonathan out and show him love, grace, and support. We are God's hands and feet. I know we can help Jonathan and Rachel face this scary moment together with confidence. And please pray for Jonathan, Rachel, and Novena to have all of their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs met in the fastest timeframe possible! We are racing against the clock. Thank you!!!!
