Our Story: Our daughter Amanda has been in and out of hospitals for the past 4 years. She has a life-threatening condition that can cause low blood pressure, slowed or irregular heart rate, low body temperature, abnormal blood counts, and electrolyte abnormalities. Her condition often requires treatment out of state, so she has extended periods of separation from most of her family. Amanda has 5 siblings. I (her mom) can't work due to the intense nature of the treatment that she is receiving and the travel it requires. We are thankful for insurance, but the travel and lack of an additional income has drained our savings and part of our retirement account. In 2018, Amanda was hospitalized for 8 months, and she will be continuing to receive inpatient care for at least 2 more months. We would be so grateful for any help!
