Less than two weeks before Christmas, Jennifer Laidlaw (formerly Tyers) experienced a seizure and was taken to Brantford General Hospital via ambulance. She had several seizures shortly after and the amazing ER team at BGH worked quickly to intubate and stabilize her, and perform some tests.
The tests unfortunately revealed that Jen has a tumour on her brain, and she was transferred to Hamilton General Hospital for further care. Jen remained intubated in the ICU for 3 days and then transferred to another floor for a few more days while she regained strength and underwent further testing.
By the grace of God, Jen was able to come home to her husband Steve before Christmas and has been able to spend some much needed time with family. Jen is scheduled to have surgery the first week in January to remove the tumour and then they will know more about what other treatment Jen will require.
Jen and Steve are an incredible young couple that love each other through thick and thin. They both serve God through the ministries of Crossroads and Circle Square Ranch and are constantly focused on helping others and are so hard working.
This has been an unexpected rollercoaster and they need all the support they can get. In the coming weeks there will be lots of trips to Hamilton and the cost of fuel and parking is a lot. Through time off of work and many new expenses, there will be financial need ahead. We want them to be able to focus their energy on healing and recovery as they begin this road, without having to be concerned about meeting their financial needs. Would you consider helping them out?
Many people have shown up and have been supporting Jen and Steve already and they are very grateful for the support.
If you are unable to support the Laidlaws financially that is okay, they would really appreciate your prayers and encouragement.
All donations big and small are deeply appreciated.
Please pray for Jen's comfort, strength and her healing.
