Sheri Pfaff (Brian Pfaff’s wife) will have open brain surgery on July 20 at OHSU (Portland) to repair a large aneurysm.
The Pfaffs live in Bend, while OHSU is in Portland. Each trip requires at least one night in a hotel, gas, meals, and time off work. They have already made four trips since May and will have several more trips this summer in addition to the surgery. They will stay in Portland for the 2 weeks following Sheri’s surgery. They need to rent a house or possibly a hotel suite for Brian, the kids, and other family for the first week, and then for Sheri to comfortably recover during the second week (she has a 2-week checkup before going back to Bend). Lodging for 2 weeks is several thousand dollars alone. In addition to travel expenses and medical expenses, they will both have significant lost income during the 6-8 weeks of Sheri’s recovery.
Note: This donation goal is to cover the current expectation of costs with the assumption that there will be no medical complications and delayed recovery.
For those wanting more information on Sheri’s condition, aneurysm history, and current updates, please Like the “Sheri Pfaff Brain Surgery/Recovery” page on Facebook. If you would prefer to be added to the group email list, please email Brian at [email redacted]. You can also send any comments or questions to Brian at that email address or a PM on Facebook.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support.
The Pfaff Family
