I know it has been a little while since I have made an update about Heather, her heart and the fundraiser. With this post, comes some good news. I had been waiting for some updates from Heather before I made a new blog post to help in one final push leading in to the surgery.
Now for the good news!
Heather is in the fortunate situation now that she only has to come up with $5000 to be able to pay for her procedure. Thanks to the generosity of so many friends, family and complete strangers, you have collectively raised over $3500 in a very short amount of time. I had no idea when I shared Heather’s story and images that this was going to be the result. I am amazed and so grateful for every last one of you that have donated, shared and commented on the donation page and my original blog post. None of this would be possible with out each and every one of you.
Want to hear some more good news?
The surgery for Heather is scheduled for March 24th. With the current donations, Heather is looking at an out of pocket expense of a little bit more than $1000. This is a much easier amount to face than the original amount she was facing. You all have done something amazing for an amazing mother of three boys. From the bottom of my heart, I thank each of you for every little (and big) thing you have done to help make this surgery for Heather a reality.
