Medical Expenses and Funeral Expenses

HI Everyone - 
I have seen several Go Fund Me campaigns, and participated in several myself, but never thought I would be creating one for my family. 

Earlier this month, my mom Joy, came down with pneumonia as well as Covid-19. She was home for awhile, but when it got harder for her to breathe, my Dad took her to the hospital in town. With her breathing and other symptoms being severe, it was decided that she needed to get care at a larger hospital. 

With Covid-19 on the rise, many closer hospitals have filled, and she was transported via ambulance(2 hours) to St. Cloud. She has been at the hospital since Friday, October 16th. I spoke with her that evening, but haven't spoken to her since, as her breathing worsened, and she went from receiving oxygen to being placed on a ventilator. 

We are getting updates daily from the nurses that are helping her. She is trying. She was breathing on her own for a bit, (with the help of oxygen), but is now back on the ventilator. Her vitals remain strong, and that is great news.

I can't even imagine the expenses that are accruing on a daily and hourly basis, and of course, she is not able to work at this time. Any donation given will go to medical expenses, and to help defray any other necessary bills. A donation would be helpful to take away just a little bit of stress in this overly stressful time in our lives. 

Of course, we will take the prayers and kind words too, keep them coming as they   help keep us going. 

Also - if you would like to send a card, please do so, and we will make sure she gets it when she is able. 

Address: Joy Dolan 324 E. Snelling Ave. Appleton, MN 56208

Thank you all.
