Vivienne's Medical Fund

This campaign was started for Nick and Melissa’s beautiful daughter Vivienne. Vivienne, as you may know, is going through something no baby should have to go through, she is fighting a virus located in her spinal fluid and brain. As of now, no one knows what kind of effect this will have on the rest of her life but we do know that right now it is affecting her family.

Vivienne was rushed from St. Elizabeth Hospital in an ambulance on 10/2/2017 to Milwaukee.  She will be in the hospital in Milwaukee for at least three weeks starting 10/3/17. This means lost wages, medical bills, lots of travel expenses as Nick tries to maintain his job, care for their wonderful pets,  and disruption of basically everything in their lives.

Vivienne is a bit of a “miracle” baby and we know she will find a way to fight this. In the meantime, we want to try to alleviate the financial burden.

In these situations we often feel helpless but we can help Nick, Melissa and Vivienne directly by donating. Please donate whatever you can to help mitigate the financial stress of this highly stressful situation.

Thank you everyone for your support. Please continue to keep these incredibly generous, loving and giving people in your hearts, thoughts and prayers.
