Saving my family

$14,315 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 206 people in 5 months
Throughout the past 5 weeks, my wife has been struggling with post partum depression. She has experienced severe symptoms including suicidal thoughts. In the last 5 weeks, she has been hospitalized on 3 separate occasions. She has tried all forms of treatment including partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient therapy, group therapy, and expressive therapy. Each time that she has been released from the hospital her suicidal thoughts become more serious.  The program that has been recommended is a long term inpatient program. This program is known as residential treatment for mental health Though we have great insurance, there is absolutely no coverage for this type of program. Our insurance would pay for this treatment if my wife had some type of substance abuse issue, but she does not. They will not cover this treatment. For her to attend the program, we will pay approximately $50,000 out of pocket. We are a young family with 3 children. I am looking to my community for any support that is available. I will continue to appeal our insurance claim, look for financial assistance, and save as much as I can. With my wife being sick and not working, we are risking bankruptcy and the loss of our house, let alone paying $50,000 to save my family. If you are unable to financially contribute, we are asking for prayers. Thank you for all that you can do to help.

Kristen started the program yesterday. The trip there was very difficult for her and she had much doubt. After she saw all of the love and support that she has, she felt ready to fight for this. Because of all of you, Kristen found the courage and the strength to start this great endeavor. The money that you have all donated thus far made it possible to get her started. We still have a long road ahead of us, but with the continied support of friends, family, strangers, and the courage Kristen has, we will get through this. God bless all of you.
