Kirk's Heart Surgeries!

In May of this year our two-year-old Son Kirk was diagnosed with a Brain Abscess, Pulmonary Hypertension and Complex Heart Disease. The brain abscess has been dealt with but our little guy still needs heart surgery. Heart surgery would improve Kirk's lung condition and it would prevent any more abscesses from occurring. Surgery would also give Kirk a good chance at a full life. Kirk's Doctor wants to send him out to Boston Massachusetts to receive the best possible treatment. The Surgeons in Boston have the best experience in dealing with complex cases like his. Kirk would most likely need to have two separate surgeries to safely fix all of the issues with his heart. The Doctor said that the first surgery would be scheduled in two to three months. Due to the serious nature of Kirks Pulmonary Hypertension it is crucial that he receive surgery as soon as possible. 
We need to have funds available by December and any size of donation is greatly appreciated. The funds will allow us to be with our young Son at this crucial time. We will need money to cover all travel expenses, lost wages and any other unforeseen expenses involved in this healing process.
