Sweet Sandy's Medical Fund

***Update- 7/31/17***
Hi All-

Thank you to all who have shared/prayed/donated to Sandy and the Dacus family. They appreciate it more than you know.

Sandy put up a strong fight. She passed yesterday afternoon. Please continue to send your prayers to the Dacus family and share this page so we can continue to help with the financial burden.

Sandy is an amazing soul and we find comfort knowing she is watching from above free of pain.

Again- thank you for your continued support and prayers.



Sandy is fighting for her life after a very bad heart situation. She has been careflighted, had open heart surgery, and is now in critical condition. The medical bills are adding up and anything we can do to help will be much appreciated by the Dacus family. As a mother, grandmother, wife, and dear friend, Sandy is very important part of the world. See below what her granddaughter has to say about this amazing woman: 

"[...]the most selfless human being I have ever encountered. My whole life I saw her purchase or do something for herself MAYBE once or twice. She has dedicated her life to our family and taking care of others.
I remember hearing her leave at 2AM to go to the hospital when she was on-call, then going back to work or working through to the following morning, THEN coming home and cooking dinner for a family of 5 or sometimes more if we had company, THEN cleaning and then maybe going to bed. She did that almost everyday, to put food in our mouths, keep a roof over our heads, and for the greater good of our family.
My heart has never been so heavy. I thought I was equipped to handle this but it's a lot harder than I thought it'd be. I'm trying to stay strong and positive because that's what everyone expects from me and that's what my grandma would do. She's always been my guardian angel but I'm not ready for her to get her wings yet." 

ANYTHING you can give (including your prayers) will make a difference to this family. Please spread the word so we can help a woman who has done nothing but help others her entire life!
