Summer's Medical Fund

$8,980 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 130 people in 2 months
This is an update to the storyline of Summer's condition. Please read on.

Within in a week, Summer went from a healthy 7 year old little girl to a critically ill patient in ICU. Summer was admitted to the hospital, Saturday, December 2nd due to complaints of severe stomach pain. Several days have passed before they were able to diagnose her. Normally, Summer's condition usually runs its course with minimal problems. Unfortunately for her, this is not the case. In fact, Summer's case is highly unusual and doctors have not seen this get as bad as it is. Summer is experiencing rare complications such as kidney damage, fluid in the lungs, heart complications, and continuing severe pain. With this said, Summer will be undergoing continuous intensive care for an unknown length of time. Summer's parents are having to miss work to be there for her and along with that, the medical bills are stacking up and they are required to pay a large out of pocket expense for 2017. With January 1 fast approaching, the deductible will reset to zero and will start over causing additional expenses to encur, so the need for these funds is immediate. My name is Dean Miller, Summer's Medical Fund campaign manager. I am Summer's papa, and her mommy's daddy. These funds will be utilized to pay for missed work, medical expenses, and everyday living expenses. They will be managed and distributed from a personal checking account which will be used to pay directly to the expenses. Your support is deeply appreciated. Please pray for Summer. Thank you and God bless.

Summer is in recovery mode and is at home. She is regaining her strength and will receive physical therapy soon. The doses of meds has been decreased or discontinued altogether, but she is going through a long process of flushing out these meds in a systematic way, so her body can adjust back to its natural state. Summer has been receiving home schooling from her teacher and is doing above average work for a second grader. She is returning back to her clever, spunky self and is laughing and smiling again. Summer's grrrma and papa have received their tattoos, but her mommy and auntie still need to get theirs. So the challenge is still on. More importantly, Summer's mommy and daddy are starting to see the expensive costs for Summer's care and they are mounting fast. The bills are trickling in. They need your assistance and would appreciate your donations to help them achieve their $12000 goal. Please pass this on to your friends and family, too. Every effort of support is deeply appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.

Summer is recovering at home and doing well. She has her moments when she is tired and just plain worn out. Summer continues to take medications and go to follow up doctor appointments. Even though Summer has gone through a tough time, her smile and happiness is returning. She remains #SUMMERSTRONG!!!

The tattoo challenge still continues and we need your help to get Summer's mommy, daddy, and auntie to the tattoo shop. We need to reach the $9000 & $10000 mark for this to happen. Grandma and grandpa got theirs, so now it's their turn. We need your help to get this challenge complete and to support Summer's medical fund. Thank you and God Bless.

Our daughter and grand-daughter, 7 year old Summer Harp, spent 8 weeks in Banner UMC Diamond Children’s Hospital stricken with a childhood illness that usually runs its course, but not in her case. Henoch Schonlein Purpura (HSP) ravaged her body. Summer's case is highly unusual and her doctors have not seen her case of HSP get as bad as it did. She experienced rare complications such as kidney damage, fluid and bleeding in the lungs, heart complications, and severe pain. She spent Christmas and New Years Day in ICU.

Today, Summer is finally home in her comfort zone recovering and continues to be #SUMMERSTRONG!!!

Summer’s recovery will not be easy. It requires medications and follow-up doctor appointments. We need your help to assist with Summer's mounting medical bills. Please donate to Summer’s Medical Fund on her GoFundMe page. $1, $5, $10, whatever you can do would be deeply appreciated. Her mommy and daddy need your help. To those of you have already donated, we sincerely thank you and ask you to pass this on to your friends and family. Ask them to donate a dollar or two.

Your prayers and support is deeply appreciated. God Bless You!

Summer is recovering quite well as you can see in the attached photo. There is still a few hurdles to get over before she is released to go home. She can't wait!

Mom and dad are starting to see the costs and how their insurance is going to cover. They still have to pay out large out of pocket expenses and co-pays. Their expenses will continue long after Summer is home, too. They really need your help, so please donate what you can. Any amount is appreciated. Keep those prayers coming too as they are the most valuable thing you can give. Thank you and God Bless.
