On Jan 1st Barb was taken to the hospital for shortness of breath, not long after being admitted she arrested but God had other plans for her and she made it through!! She was on the vent for over 10 days and was been in the hospital for 6 weeks. She now has been admitted to an out patient rehab facility and on a long road to recovery. I have created this go fund me to help her with all of her medical bills and normal monthly bills. She will be off of work for quite some time and we all know how bills can pile up especially being a single person.
If you don't know Barb let me tell you a little about her.
She is a loving mother of a son and a grandmother to 3 beautiful grandkids. She lives for them and she can't wait to be able to see the 3 grandkids since being in the hospital. She is a hard worker, one of the hardest ones I know! A Respiratory Therapist who loves helping others. She previously was working night shift and working a second job at that and being sick on top of it all. You see the past 2 years have been rough on her she's been in and out of the hospital many times and through all of that she worked as hard as ever even when she shouldn't have been. When her medical issues started she stay on top of it all and did everything she could to improve, but it gradually began to get worse until the worst happened.
She is an extremely healthy person and very active. On her days off she would enjoy riding many miles on her bike or taking a nice long walk. She loves being outside and enjoying life!
Here's a FB post she posted the day before all of this happened to her...
"As 2017 comes to an end, I just want to say goodbye. I am very blessed for what I have been given in 2017. Thankful for my family, friends, and my job! I'm looking forward to 2018 and praying for a better year! #health #love #life #prayers"
There aren't enough words to express how much this would mean to her if we could help raise money to help with her medical expenses and alleviate some financial stress from her. My first goal is to reach $2000 for her but I hope to raise more!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us take care of some medical expenses for my dear friend Barb!!
