Helping the O'Rileys

There comes a time in life where we all hit a hardship. Many of us hate asking for help because we know so many people are struggling. I'm am asking for help for my dear friend and her family. A few weeks ago they had to use their Christmas money they had saved for their 4 children on a sudden and devastating loss of their golden retriever. Then this past weekend their 3 old son was having extreme pain and would just scream in agony so they took him to children's hospital north campus where he was rushed to the main campus in aurora by ambulance. Mandy made hard decisions by refusing morphine to her baby because it would mask the pain and was afraid they wouldn't find the issue. She was also given the choice of being sent home and putting her little boy on antibiotics or having his appendix removed. They told her he could be in the beginning stages of appendicitis and the surgeon was ok with whatever choice she made. Mandy and Matt opted to have the surgery. While in surgery, the surgeon found 2 bands that his body had grown that isn't normal in a human body, and these bands were not seen in the cat scan and were wrapped around his intestines and cutting off all blood supply. The surgeon congratulated Mandy on being persistent and being an amazing advocate for her son. He told her that if they decided to go home her little boy wouldn't have survived 24 hours. Life is so precious, especially our own children. Matt is staying home from work this week to spend time with his family but he will not be getting paid. To Matt and Mandy being with their children as a family at this time is more important.
I created this GoFundMe account to help them be able to get their 4 kids some Christmas gifts, Christmas dinner and to help pay their mortgage and gas money since they've been driving back and forth so much to the hospital and home. They have a 13 yr old daughter, 5yr old son, 3yr old son and a 2yr old daughter.
Again, I understand we all struggle at times and holidays are always worse but I would love to help relieve some of the financial stress from them, especially after losing their dog and almost their 3yr old precious boy.
Thank you and God bless

I want to thank everyone that has supported Amanda and their family! They have been overwhelmed with love and support from friends, family, and most of all strangers. I never thought we would hit the goal of $2000 but the kindness of others have surpassed that goal and I still have people messaging me wanting to help. I'm not sure how GoFundMe works so I changed the goal to $3000 but please know that was only because I'm not sure how the process goes and I want to thank you all for helping hit the main goal which was $2000. I was told that we could still get donations passed what I asked so I'm setting it back to $2000 so there are no misunderstandings. Thank you all for your love and support. Mandy was in tears when I've told her about all of the strangers reaching out. Ethan was able to go home the other night and when I saw him, I gave him a thousand kisses all over his little face and told him how much I love him!! Praise Jesus for protecting him and keeping him safe and alive. God Bless you all and please let me know if you have any question or want more updates!
