Support Erin Strait's Family Medical Care

Hi, friends and family. I’ve started a Go Fund Me account for my sister Erin, a single mother who lives in Minneapolis with her nine-year-old twins. On November 30, Erin called her pediatrician with concerns for her child.  They made an appointment for a few days later, but Erin had a gut feeling to ask to speak to a nurse. They were then directed to go immediately to Urgent Care, and from there to Children's ER, where they spent the next three days in the hospital. The doctors diagnosed a lifelong condition.

This is a challenging development at any time, but especially so this year. Erin was hopeful her child would be accepted into a clinical trial at the University of Minnesota for newly diagnosed children with their characteristics. This would have covered medical costs for a year and provided cutting-edge guidance for treating the disease. However, due to COVID, they’re not accepting patients at this time. 

In the spirit of mutual aid, I ask that you consider making a donation to this account to offset medical and other day-to-day costs they’re dealing with. Under the advisement of the child's doctor, my sister will take leave from work through the end of the year, and she'll likely work a reduced schedule into 2021. At this time, monthly income and treatment costs are unknown, so anything would be incredibly meaningful.

*Due to the child's age and lack of understanding of consent in this public forum, we're not listing specifics about the condition. We hope you understand. If you have any questions, please email me. Thank you!
