Paying it forward for Ashley

For those who know or don't know our niece, Ashley Sheehan. We were so blessed to have such an amazing and beautiful person born into our family 29 years ago....    She was admitted into the St. Cloud Hospital on February 26th, (after treating at a different hospital in their infection and wound clinic for several weeks/months and just getting worse).  We found out that Ashley has had a bad infection flowing through her blood, and a bacterial infection that has ate her flesh, muscle and her bone, at the base of her tail bone.  She is one of the strongest people, with  having 3 surgeries just this last week.  The hole in her back is about 3 inches wide and 4 inches deep.  They are hoping the infection will clear up so they don't have to go in and scrape more bone.  She has a very long ways to go, a long ways......... 
She was able to go home with a pick today, only because of her mother Connie's,  nursing history.  She is being treated by five infection and wound doctors and staff from st. cloud, mn.  Connie will have to turn Ashley in bed every two hours even through the night for the next 3 to 4 months.  In between that time, when the infection clears in her back, she will be in the hospital  to get skin graphing and plastic surgery, with another stay of 1 to 2 weeks.   Our sister, Connie, has had to take a leave from Amazon ( her position of employement).   With no income and having to be with Ashley 24 hours a day, it will be a struggle.  I and Jeannie would appreciate a dollar, five dollars or whatever you can spare to take the stress of bills away for a while.  Anything would be greatly appreciated.  Most of all and above all, please add Ashley to your prayers for healing, during this long time frame.  Thank you, and God bless.
