Ian's cause is to help raise funds for his trip to Minnesota and the related expenses insurance does not cover

This summer Ian will be traveling from Maryland to Rochester Minnesota to have vascular reconstructive surgery. We will be traveling as a family and will be in Minnesota for several weeks while Ian recovers from this operation. Ian is 11 yrs old and has Neurofibromatosis type 1. He has had a narrowing of his aorta in his abdomen as well as the renal arteries since he was 5. He has been hyperstensive and on medication to control his blood pressure since he was first diagnosed. The goal is to reconstruct the area of the aorta and renal arteries that are narrowed. The cost of the travel, lodging and medical expenses will exceed more than we could imagine. Our insurance will not cover the full cost of the surgery and we will be responsible for a portion of this cost. We appreciate your prayer and support as a family. God Bless all.
