Kendra spends a large amount of her time each week visiting doctors, enduring medical treatments, and trying various expensive medications. Although the family has insurance, their out of pocket costs have become a tremendous financial burden on them. Now, her stay at The Cleveland Clinic will add to her already extensive expenses.
While she is in Cleveland, she will see multiple specialists. At this time, we are not certain about how long Kendra will need to be there, but further tests, procedures, and treatments are likely. We are certain that Kendra still has a long way to go to battle this debilitating disease.
Kendra's husband, Shannon (my brother) will accompany Kendra as long as possible. He has applied for Family Medical Leave if needed, but he will not receive an income during that time. They will have to secure a hotel at their expense for the entire duration of Kendra's stay in Cleveland.
There is a possibility of several trips back and forth to the clinic so multiple plane tickets is also a possible expense.
I have watched my brother's family endure so much hardship over the years. The recession also took its toll on the family. My brother was in construction at the time.
I am asking family, friends, and anyone else who can help to first PRAY for my sister-in-law's physical healing. Then, consider donating to help my brother and sister-in-law take care of all her medical expenses. This will take a huge burden off their shoulders so Kendra can concentrate on getting well and Shannon can concentrate on taking care of Kendra.
Shannon and Kendra will travel to Cleveland, OH in the next few weeks so funds are needed as soon as possible.
The funds you donate to this cause will be used for:
Accumulating Medical Bills (They are extensive)
Gas if trips are made by car.
Airline Tickets if needed
Loss of Income if Shannon has to take FML
Thank you so much for any amount you can donate and especially for your prayers as Kendra and Shannon continue to endure this hard journey.
