Kathryn Dedman medical expenses

I am setting this page up for my best friend Kathryn Dedman her family is struggling to get her the help she needs right now and to pay for her most recent surgery, Dr visits, testing, other medical expenses, travel expenses and hotel stays because her chiari specialist is in little rock arkasas about 2 1/2 hours away she has recently had her 2nd Brain surgery for Arnold Chiari Malformation ( a brain condion where the brain sinks into the spinal canal causing compression of the spinal cord) This causes so many life altering and some life threatening symptoms. She was also diagnosed with a brain tumor, cranial cervical instability, basilar invagination, postural orthastatic tachycardia syndrome, Dysautonomia, Tortacollis, Nystagmus, Atrophy of the right hand and leg, degenerative disc disease, bulging and herniated disc that are impinging on her spinal cord,and to top it all off she has and extremely narrow airway that causes great difficulty when trying to intubate her. She is a mother, wife, duaghter and did I mention the best friend a girl could ask for She is the strongest most caring and giving woman that I know always willing to help someone in their time of need now she needs help to be able to get back and forth to her doctors appointment, testing, bills, and other expenses that im sure will come up along the way.I took her to little rock this morning for more testing. We are right now awaiting a phone call from her chiari specialist to see what is causing her newest symptoms and what the plan is to get it fixed we are praying that this does not mean another surgery but it very well may. Anything you can do will help out and will be greatly appreciated. We are also asking that you keep her and her family in your prayers during this very stressful time.
