I wanted to pop in and share a card I made for an angel on earth. Let me explain... A co-worker of mine has a daughter who has needed a kidney transplant since she was 9 and shes 14 now. My co-worker had a place reserved at a Ronald McDonald house for $20.00 a night. They called her last week and said they were able to finally start construction on their expansion but she had to find alternative housing because the transplant patients couldn't stay there during construction. Her surgery is scheduled for next Friday. I couldn't believe they did this to all the transplant patients right before their surgery. Its stressful enough to have her daughter go Thur this without having no where to stay at the last minute!! So my co-workers and I raised $3000.00 for the hotel she was going to have to stay at. $140.00 was the cheapest and the hospital mandates that after the surgery the patients have to stay within a certain distance from the hospital for a few weeks.
I remembered I have a friend who's cousin lives by the hospital so I called her and asked her if she would call them and see if they knew of anything within a mile of the hospital. She posted it on a site called Nextdoor and got three replies immediately! One of the people she had met before and this lady had volunteered at this hospital for 33 years! She has a 3 bedroom house with an in law quarters attached. It has a pool and the best news? FREE for as long as my co-worker needs it!! Is that the BEST story? It brought tears to my eyes and my co-worker meets her tomorrow to work out the details! So that stress of off my co-worker and she can concentrate on her daughter :-) So, I made this card for my friend's cousin who facilitated the meeting and truly is an angel:-) Prayers to my co-worker and her daughter for a successful transplant.
