Help Sara Strand and Family!

Update 08/04/16: Sara continues to improve and was moved out of the ICU today! Thank you for all of your prayers and positive thoughts!  Check the updates page for more info.
Sara Strand 
had an emergency c-section on August 1st to deliver her baby girl.  Complications in labor occurred and Sara developed Amniotic Fluid Embolism , a life threatening condition that resulted in emergency surgery to stop hemorrhaging.  Sara is currently sedated with breathing tubes in the ICU.  Her condition has improved, but she is not yet awake and has a road of recovery ahead of her.  Sara and her husband Matt have three other children in addition to their new baby daughter at home waiting for their mommy to get better.  

This beautiful family needs our financial support and encouragement to allow them to focus on Sara's recovery.  Sara is a dear friend and source of strength, laughter, and joy for so many.  It would mean so much to me if everyone would help give something to ease the burden on Matt and Sara so they can focus on getting Sara back on her feet and healthy.  I know so many people care about Sara like I do, so please help me in making it possible for them to focus on Sara's recovery.
