Quadruple Bypass Support for Sylvia

My name is Jennifer Swenson and I am raising funds for my mother in law, Sylvia Richards.  Sylvia's son Aaron took her to the ER this week with chest pains/tightness. An ECG revealed an injured heart. An Angiogram showed all 4 arteries into her heart are blocked. She was airlifted to Sudbury, Ontario and is awaiting open heart surgery during which the surgeon will perform a quadruple bypass. Sylvia experienced a massive life changing stroke 10 years ago that paralyzed her right side and that, along with other factors, puts her in the highest  risk category. Her son Trevor escorted her in the helicopter to Sudbury and her husband Murray and well as her son Aaron are driving down to be with her. The funds raised here will go to offset the cost of traveling, accommodations, meals, and lost wages while they are with Sylvia in Sudbury for the next few weeks. Living in the Northern Ontario town of Sault Ste. Marie we do not have access to the care needed for Sylvia thus making travel unavoidable. This is a very stressful, costly, & trying time for the family. Any and all help would be very much appreciated. Money will be transferred directly to Sylvia's bank account. Thank you. ~Jennifer
