Support for Laura (Jan)

Laura (Jan) is a very sweet, God loving woman.

She was not feeling well for a couple days and thought she had the stomach flu.  She ended up having seizures and was rushed to the hospital by her brother where she was immediately admitted and had emergency surgery for internal bleeding in her stomach.  She ended up having to go back in for a second surgery the following morning where, to complicate things,  her lung was accidentally nicked. She was put in an induced coma and put on morphine. She is now out of induced coma, off the ventilator, and arterial line but still has stomach and chest tubes. She will be in hospital recovering and then will still have an undetermined recovery period at home and unable to return to work right away. 

Laura is her sole provider and has helped others in need at her own expense. She is the type person to go without so that she can help someone else. For this reason I felt compelled to start this fund raiser to give back to Laura and assist her with her financial expenses until she has recovered enough to go back to work. 

Please give as as your heart tells you too ❤️
