Support Kati Hammett

Monday, August 13th, Dixie and Dash’s mom, and Jeff’s beloved wife of 28 years, Kati suffered a stroke and brain aneurysm.  Since that time, she has endured multiple procedures including surgeries to implant drains to remove fluid and blood from her brain as well as repairing the aneurysm and diseased vessels. The latest life saving procedure included a craniotomy to relieve brain pressure and place her in a paralytic state in order to maintain optimal blood pressure and protect her brain. 

From the beginning, we have known this road to recovery will be a long one… not months, but years. Her prognosis is only the first step.  Since Kati is half of her self-employed family, taking Jeff off the road will significantly impact the family financially.  The GoFund Me funds would be a critical part of allowing Jeff to focus on Kati and their children.  Funds will go a long way to help cover medical and household expenses while  allowing Jeff to focus on Kati’s recovery.  It will also enable Jeff to stay as close as possible to family, doctors, and friends, and to get Kati through this traumatic experience and back to her larger than life self.
