THE STORY:

We've been blessed with a wonderful Mom! She has raised five children into what we think are pretty cool adults. Four of us went into the Navy and one joined the Army. Each one of us is happily married and we are enjoying life. Although we are sprinkled all over the country; we get together whenever we can so mom can enjoy her thirteen grandchildren and we can recall all our goofy childhood antics and family tales!

She survived a heart attack 21 years ago before the age of 50 and has been in good health since. In the beginning of December, she came down with pneumonia, which developed into double pneumonia. On Christmas Eve, she was having so much trouble catching her breath just moving from room to room in her apartment that she went to the Emergency Room. Days later, after several tests and scans, it turns out it's not pneumonia at all, but congestive heart failure.  She's on a medicine to help strengthen her heart and she's been fitted with a "life vest", which is an external defibrillator.  She may need surgery to have an internal defibrillator put in come Spring 2016.

Mom has insurance but it will only cover a portion of her costs. We are holding this fundraiser to pay for costs not covered by insurance. Please consider giving any amount you can to help our awesome Mom! We would greatly appreciate it! Thank you for taking the time to read about our family's fundraiser.

P.S. Don't forget to visit or call YOUR Mom and tell her how much you love her!
