Support My Dad's Recovery

Hi. Our names are Kristi, Heidi, Amber, and Emma, Alan Ruprecht, is our dad.

Our dad is one of our best friends. He prides himself in taking care of his daughters and grandkids. But now he needs us to take care of him. 

Our dad has had multiple Paraesophageal Hernias. He has had three different, failed, surgeries, and now he needs another. Unfortunately, due to life circumstances, he is forced to have this surgery on December 19th and will be in the hospital through Christmas.

Our dad will be having an Esophageal Reconstruction. However, because of the multiple failed surgeries, there is too much scar tissue to go through the front. Sadly, this means that the doctors will break our dads ribs in order to gain access through his side.

Our dad will be in the hospital for an expected 10 days – with an expected recovery of 6 weeks. During this time, my dad will be unable to work. Distressfully, he will also be without pay. As a father, homeowner, and human being, just the thought of living 6 weeks without an income, is profound.
Our hope is to alleviate our dad’s sufferings. Unfortunately, we cannot take his pain away. However, with your help we can at least support him financially.  

Our goal is to raise at least $6,000. This will help cover his cost of living for his 6-week recovery.

If you are unable to help financially, don’t be discouraged. You can still help! You can help by praying for our dad. You can help by sharing his story and asking your friends to help. You can help by being there for our dad while he is recovering. No matter how you help, We Appreciate You.

Thank You. Thank you, for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will do our best to respond quickly and efficiently.

Remember, Every Dollar Helps!
No donation is too small. 

God Bless You.
