Helping Hands For The Wrodas

Those that know us know that we very rarely ask for help, but often offer it. We have always taken pride in being able to handle whatever situation has come our way. This time though we know we can not, and with great humility ask for the help of those around us. In March of this year we discovered that Lisa was pregnant with our third baby boy. Early on we learned that Keegan was going to be special, but little did we know how special. He was diagnosed with Thrombocytopenia Absent Radius (TAR) Syndrome, a very rare disease that effects his plattlett levels and causes a malformation in both of his arms. Shortly after finding out she was pregnant, Lisa was admitted to the hospital with a serious heart problem.

She was diagnosed with a heart valve condition and spent a long time in the hospital. After Keegan was born in April, both Lisa and Keegan had a long stay in the Heart ICU and NICU respectively. Keegan’s condition requires weekly visits to multiple doctors. Lisa’s heart condition requires frequent doctors appointment, and will lead to having to have open heart surgery in September. Lisa has been unable to work due to her heart issues, and I have had to make up the difference while keeping enough time to take off for various doctors appointments and problems that arrise. Now with all of that we have learned that the house we have been living in for the last 5 years is being sold. We must move by September 1rst. It is very little time to raise the money for a new home and also move with while also keeping up with current bills and medical issues. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for anything you can do to assist in our time of need.
