Tawny & George Platis Medical Bills

Tawny & her husband George were inseparable. They shared six years and just about every waking second they could together. Tawny & George were building a career in podcasting. They spent night after night working on their show The Dirty Bits, Tawny as the voice artist and George as the audio engineer. They would always mention that they were soulmates - and it was evident to anyone who spent time with the couple.

While many of their memories are happy, George and Tawny’s relationship was plagued by an onslaught of health issues.

George was born with a single ventricle cardiac anatomy similar to hypoplastic left heart syndrome. He also had low function cilia which caused him severe respiratory issues. Many of Tawny & George’s evenings were spent with the doctors at UC La Jolla, Sharp Grossmont, and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.

On November 8th, 2019 George lost his difficult battle with his body and Tawny lost her soulmate. The next few months for Tawny were filled with grief, devastation, and pain. Coupled with the effects of the Coronavirus, Tawny has been more isolated than ever. In addition to the grief, she is also left with an estimated $60,000 in medical debt and has been struggling to support herself with one income.

We know Tawny as someone who wouldn’t ask for help on her own, so we are jumping in to ask on her behalf. Please consider donating to the cause to remove even an ounce of stress in an already stressful and uncertain time. All proceeds will go directly to Tawny as she navigates this new reality.
