Winston's Lifesaving Surgery

On Sunday, Christine had to make the incredibly difficult decision of whether Winston should undergo lifesaving sugery to untwist his colon. Luckily, surgery went well and he is able to come home today! Unfortunately the cost of the hospital stay & surgery was $5000.

Anyone that knows Christine, knows that Winston is her best friend. They also know that she is the first person to offer help when someone needs it, be it monetarily or just being there to lend support, be it friend or stranger. I truly have never met a more selfless, giving person, and I know that she would never ask for this help herself.

I figured half of the hospital bill would be an amazing (if lofty) target, anything you can give would help immensely at this expensive time of year.

Thank you on behalf of Christine & Win.
