Medical Fund For Mom and Daughter
Our family has struggled through many medical challenges over the last couple years. Recently we found that my wife Amanda will need a panendectomy. We will soon travel to Charleston South Carolina where 1 of only 5 doctors in America can perform this surgery .This is a high risk surgery in which they will remove the pancreas completely and attempt to relocate Islets from the pancreas to the liver to produce insulin As if that were not enough yesterday we found our 12 year old daughter has long QT syndrome which causes her heart to go out of rhythm and will require life long medication a pacemaker or both. We will also have to have a defibulator on hand because this can cause sudden death. We are struggling mentally, emotionally and financially as none of this was ever expected and is overwhelming. With Amanda out of work and myself disabled from my military service in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am left with no other option than to ask for your help in saving our family. We are a very proud family and I would never ask if there was any other option. If you cant give to help that is very understable. Please give a prayer our way because we need the help of our lord to overcome this and bring some miracles our way. Amanda is a loving , giving mother of 2 and 3 step children. She loves spending time with her daughter and having Mother/ Daughter days. She is a terrific grandmother and loved by 6 wonderful grandchildren. Even in her worst times of illness she still brings joy and laughter to all of us.Cassie has always been a mess. Lol She loves hunting, fishing and riding motorcycles. She is our wild child and she is so scared for her mommy and now for herself. So if you find it in your heart to help please do. It will be very much appreciated and used by a family in true need. Thank you for reading and please share with your friends on facebook. We cant do this alone.+ Read More
Well the day has arrived and Amanda is in preop. for her panendectomy and islet transplantation. I want to tank again everyone who has donated on her and Cassies gofundme. Please say a prayer for Amanda today she is somewhat apprehensive and of course sacred as we all are for her.
This Friday we leave for Charelston South Carolina. Amanda will be having the surgery on Monday. Everything is set up and ready to go. Im just not sure we are ready for everything to come. Everyone please continue to pray for us and especially Amanda as she goes through this. I want to thank everyone for showing your support and caring. I will update again. After the surgery. Now for Cassie. She went back to the doctor last week and they put her back on a heart monitor and increased her medication. If the increase helps she may only need medication if not other options will be looked into. She has not passed out again since being placed on it. Continue to pray for her to. Thank you again everyone!
Hello so as of Wensday I have been here with Amanda at Union County hospital. Her pancreas has had sever inflammation and swelling. She has had nothing to eat and been on fluids only since we got here. Cassie has an appointment next week to make sure she doesnt have a rare blood disease. Please keep praying for our family.
Amanda and I left for South Carolina Sunday night. We spoke with the psychologist and met with the pa. to get all the paperwork complete. All the test came back and Amanda is a perfect candidate for the surgery. Tuesday we met with the pa. again and the doctor. The doctor felt like this is Amandas best option to help improve quality of life . So the surgery is scheduled for May 15th. Just next month. We are not completely prepared for this but will continue foward. Thank you to everyone. I will continue to update as we travel foward with this journey.
