Medical Fund For Kelli

Yesterday was my friend Kelli's 56th birthday and she shared the most heart wrenching story. One that was so difficult and embarrassing for her to tell because she is not a person who likes to ask for help. So I am asking for her.

In April of 2017 she had a small heart attack followed soon thereafter by a massive LAD (left anterior descending) heart attack. Doctors call it a 'widow maker' and only 5% survive it.  It left her with severely compromised health including severe sleep apnea. Her daily medication intake now comes at a huge monthly cost. Her doctor told her she can no longer work and has, therefore lost her health insurance.

Sadly, her husband's response to this was to get up early one morning and leave her a note that said, “I did not plan on taking care of someone in my golden years so I am leaving you. Do not try to contact me. Goodbye”.

The stress of that caused another heart attack and she's lost everything.

Fortunately her lovely daughter and son-in-law were good enough to take her in but there's a limit to their ability to help financially.

Kelli is scraping together the monthly medication cost but cannot afford a very much needed bi-pap machine for the sleep apnea. She's tried every agency and benevolent association but none have been able to help. The cost is $2,000.

Please help me raise the money to provide the recuperative support this sweet, kind-hearted woman needs to be able to function, survive and be there for her young grandson. Thank you!
