Shawna's medical and living costs

I am starting this gofundme for my good friend Shawna who has gone through a great ordeal in the past month and has a long road ahead.  Shawna could really use the financial support as she recovers.  

This unfortunate chain of events began on July 5th when Shawna had to deliver sweet little Claire prematurely due to an infection that put Shawna and the baby's health at risk.  Claire arrived in this world weighing in at just 1lb 1 oz and fought her little heart out until July 8th when she took her last breath.  Shawna left the hospital 2 days later with empty arms and an empty belly....I cannnot imagine the pain.  

Unfortunely Shawna returned to the hospital just a few days later in severe pain and septic and was rushed into yet another extensive surgery.  This surgery has now led to infection and several blood transfusions and Shawna is still laying in a hospital bed trying to recover from both the loss of a child and her own health.  When Shawna is well enough to return home, she will not be able to return from work until she heals and has yet another surgery.  Her 3rd surgery is expected to happen some time in September with another 4-6 weeks of healing before returning to work.  

I am asking that you see it in your heart to help a grieving mother heal without the burden of medical bills and losing her home while she cannot work.  Any amount you can donate is appreciated and we thank you in advance.
