The Skeen Medical Fund

My youngest sister (Catherine) gave birth to her third child two weeks ago (Darby), and three days later found out her husband (Josh) had a brain tumor. Good news is his surgery was successful yesterday (3/25/2016)...and the tumor was benign. But he's got a long recovery in front of him, which isn't going to be easy for my sister given she's got a newborn on her hands, plus a toddler and a tween.

Additionally, money was tight for them prior to this medical emergency; now it's even tighter. To add to the financial pain, they are having a very difficult time with their health insurance in terms of getting all their costs covered. They've been blessed with great support from the health professionals thus far, but some financial assistance is very much needed. Our parents (retired) and siblings (with families of their own) can only provide so much. If anyone can spare anything, no matter how little, it would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
