Medical Bills Keep Going UP UP UP!

My name is Lacey.  I am lucky to get to be the sister-in-law  to this amazing couple!  This is Luchian and Christina.  I could talk about me all day, but you'd rather know where your money's going! lol!  I'm going to start off being completely honest...These folks are badasses!  
She grew up in the middle of the bush in Talkeetna, Alaska and still to this day is very adventurous!  Always hiking, biking, snowmachining, building things, working on their new K9 business, and raising their son!!
2 years ago, Christina had to have emergency surgery to remove one of her kidneys because it was failing, her husband had to sacrifice being away during that time to continue to pay for the procedure. She has been a strong wife of a man who has dedicated his time overseas to keep America safe. Luchian had to have back surgery to correct an injury he received from overseas earlier this year. Unfortunately, this put financial burden on their family and business, while still in his recovery and had to make a gambling decision to go without insurance.

Move forward to today, Christina is back in the hospital and unfortunately uncovered by insurance. She had multiple cyst and an abscess that was on her ovaries, one of the larger abscess ruptured and filled her body with infection. She was hiking in Utah when it happened and had to have an emergency transfer to a hospital that was 200 miles away in Colorado for emergency surgery. Because she was septic, they had to remove her ovaries, uterus, Fallopian tubes, cervix, and appendix. She became septic from free floating infection which had to be irrigated out of her interior cavity to ensure that the infection would not spread to other vital organs. Very serious life-threatening scenario. These types of evasive surgeries always leave an element of infection behind, which unfortunately did occur causing an additional procedure to ensure a safe road to recovery coupled with intensive antibiotic IV treatment to repress and treat the remaining free-floating fluids. I haven't mentioned it, but she is only 31. That is a lot of loss at such a young age. 

Currently, she is still in the hospital ($800 per day for the room alone), going on day 6.  She had some setbacks today, but we are very hopeful that everything will be OK.

 If you aren't catching my drift by now, they are in dire need of some financial help which I know they won't ask for.  3 major medical emergencies in 2 year, yikes.

I know there are a million of these go fund me pages out there.  I know everyone is always asking for money, but I think Luchian and Christina have been through so much, to not have to worry about medical expenses would be a huge relief.  Anything you can give is wonderful and we'll be in your debt!  If you can't give money, please spread the word by sharing this. 


Thank you so much in advanced and love to all!
