We are uniting to raise money for my step-dads life saving heart surgery. My mom and step-dad cannot cover all the expenses related to this. My step-dad is fighting for his life right now. He is very sick and needs surgery. My mom has been busy full time with working. When she isn’t working she has been busy taking my step-dad Terry Kauffman back and forth to doctors for tests. He is fighting for his life right now. We have joined together as a family to make this happen. There is no way they can cover all of the expenses related to his surgery. This includes gas money to go back and forth to Chicago where they will do his surgery on July 10th. He will be in the hospital for at least a week or longer depending on how everything goes. He has to have his heart valve replaced. He is high risk. My mom does his hemo dialysis 5 evenings a week when she gets home from work. This takes 4 hours each treatment but keeps him alive and as healthy as possible. I am trying to raise needed money for them to get through this time worry free. Some of the expenses include extra medications he will need after surgery that are not covered by his insurance, the remainder of his doctor bills, and hospital bills that are not included by insurance, my mom’s need to pay for parking each day which is not cheap, at $24 a day, gas to get back and forth, a place to stay for her while they are in Chicago, and food. Other expenses that need covered are the bills they are behind on due to having to stay off work to take him to needed appointments, and emergency room visits, and other things. Although she is working full time, she cannot keep all their bills covered right now. She has a second job which she cannot work at right now due to needing to be there for my step-dad. My step-dad is a good guy and deserves this chance to live. He is disabled now but when he was working he worked as a paramedic and firefighter. He saved others lives. He deserves to have a chance at saving his own. He needs an aortic valve replacement. Since he is on dialysis, he falls under the high risk category. If he can get his heart fixed, he can then go for a needed kidney transplant. Northwestern Hospital in Chicago Illinois is where they need to go. This is where they handle high risk surgeries such as his. This is where he is scheduled for surgery. My mom is working so hard to find a way to cover expenses but does not know what to do right now. Please help donate to this fund if you can.
my step-father in law is in need of a risky (but life saving!) heart surgery and we need all the help we can get just to keep our home. his insurance only covers a small portion of the surgery but we’re having a hard enough time just trying to pay the rent and our bills. brad, i and our girls are currently living with brads mother and step-father and are having an impossible time finding work to help pay rent (we’re both unemployed). brads mother will have to take some time off work to be with her husband in the hospital in Chicago so we’ll be without any income for some time. we might be facing the loss of her husband along with the loss of our home. anything you can donate will be more than appreciated. it will help us so so much right now. click the link below to help us out if you can! share/signal boost this please!! thank you so much!!
