Stephenie's Corneal Transplant

Dear Family and Friends,                                                                                                        
It is with much regret that I am writing this letter, but I do not know who to turn to other than family and close friends.  For the past several years, my daughter, Stephenie has been battling a serious eye condition.  After going to numerous eye specialties and administering countless eye medications, God has answered our prayers.  We were sent to a corneal specialist who went above and beyond to find out what exactly was wrong with her eye/vision.  Stephenie has been diagnosed with a rare eye condition that the specialist sees about one case a month. 

To save Stephenie’s vision, a corneal transplant must take place as soon as possible.  She has not been able to work in months and does not have any insurance.  The total cost of the surgery is $8000.00.  The cornea alone is $3000.00.

This is the reason why I am reaching out to you for help.  Any amount at all will be deeply appreciated.

            I remember when I lost Paul, the love of my life, everyone was so kind to say, “If you ever need anything, just let me know”.  With God’s blessings, I have not needed anything in all these years.  However, I do now.  I need your help and your prayers for Stephenie not to lose her vision. 

Thank you very much.  I understand If you cannot help and I still love all of you so very much.  Just keep Stephenie in your prayers, please.

 

Love In Christ,

Shirley Shires
