Please join us in supporting Amanda and helping her "get back on her feet" after surgery to repair a painful foot condition. Thank you!

It's rare in this life to meet someone with a pure heart. Amanda is just such a person. Those who know her will tell you that she is as selfless as they come, working on behalf of the American Cancer Society and always asking for prayers for others. It's Amanda's turn to receive some of the goodness she has put out into the world. Every once in a while we just plain need a little extra help. Amanda has never once asked me for anything, but only offered her assistance in times of need. Born with enough challenges for 10 people, Amanda will quickly tell you the ways God has blessed her life. This last year, with her usual independent spirit, she relocated to Cody, Wyoming for work opportunities. Her friends and family are in Southern California. Since arriving there, Amanda has worked very hard to retain her independence. However, recently she had surgery to repair a problem with her feet that she's had all her life. With much encouragement from friends from far away, Amanda braved this surgery with only her pastor and his wife at her side. After surgery, she had an allergic reaction to the pain medicine so ultimately she was forced to endure the pain. She currently has post-surgical boots on both feet and is walking with the help of a walker. Her financial challenges include a loss of income from her two jobs at Walmart and Conoco during this time period. Her surgery to repair her calves and feet so she can walk with a regular gait, run, climb ladders, and come down stairs without the fear of falling cost $17,000. The debt left to Amanda is $3-4000. Amanda is the last person who would ask for anything and so I hope she will accept this small fundraising effort as a sign of our deep love, affection, and belief in her. (Amanda, you WILL cash the check!)
