Rachel's Open Heart Surgery

My daughter, Rachel Nicole Prado, was born with a condition called Tetrology of Fellot- a congenital heart condition that has required open heart surgeries at different stages of her life.  She is now needing another open heart surgery to fix a valve that is compromising her lungs.  The surgery will take place in Corpus Christi, Texas and all donations will be used to help us with travel and stay during this time.  All of her prior surgeries have been done there in Corpus at Driscoll Children's Hospital by a wonderful surgeon- Dr. Morales- who will once again perform this surgery.  The date for this has yet to be determined however, the soonest will be in March and the latest in June.  
For each donation, I am offering a token of my appreciation called a "Blessing Buddy" . I have written a poem that will be customized for each recipient with a designated scripture to help meet a particular need.  This is to be attached to a stuffed animal along with a scripture card and a "PRAY IT FORWARD" card for the recipient to pass on the blessing.   Requests for these can be sent to [email redacted].
