Kristin has a condition called a uterine septum and needs a simple surgery to enable her to carry a pregnancy to full term. This is a fundraiser to help Luke & Kristin raise money for medical expenses relating to the surgery.

My wonderful brother and sister-in-law, Luke and Kristin could use your help! Kristin has a condition called a uterine septum (septate uterus). It is a uterine condition in which a line of tissue runs down the center of the uterus effectively cutting it in half. The problem with this condition is that the tissue that divides the uterus has a very low blood/oxygen supply and if an embryo is implanted on it, the baby has very little chance for surviving. This has been the main cause of Kristin and Luke having many sweet babies in heaven. They have one miracle baby Levi, who is 3. Kristin and Luke have a great desire to have another baby. The good news is that a relatively minor surgery will correct the condition 100% and reduce her chances of losing any more pregnancies to the same chances of any woman not having this condition.

The cost of this procedure is between $3,000 and $5,000 dollars. It is not covered by medical insurance and, like most of us, they do not have the money to pay this out of pocket. I am trying to raise money to help them with their surgery and related medical expenses. I know there are a million great causes and a million great needs out there. I know it is hard to know when and where to give money. This is my meager attemp at trying to help out the people in my life who are some of the most important to me and unless they are your family too, this cause is probably not going to be at the top of your list. :~) However, if you do feel a desire or pull to give, please know that any amount you are able to donate is so very appreciated and will help to save little unborn lives! Every dollar counts!

Thank you so much for your donations, prayers and care for these precious members of my family. Please feel free to pass this link along to anyone else who you think may be interested in contributing.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at elvistexmex@gmail.com.

God Bless You!!

UPDATE:  2/2010 - Since I began the fundraiser there have been some great developments.  An amazing piece of news is that Luke and Kristin were able to get their insurance to cover this procedure despite the fact that it is a "pre-existing condition"! However, they are still responsible for their deductible which is, coincidentally, $2500.  So...a few weeks ago Kristin went ahead and had the surgery and it was a great success!! All looks really good, Kristin has recovered very well and they are so very excited and hopeful for what the future holds! I know that they have made it through the largest and most important hurdle in being able to have the surgery, but the money owed for the procedure is still a consideration. I  would be so grateful if you would consider a donation of any amount to help this sweet couple know how much they are loved and supported.

God Bless You!!

Michal
