Seeing Eye Guide Dog, Nedra; needs life-saving surgery. She is Kristen's "eyes" and faithful friend. They desperately need YOUR help.

Our family is trying to raise funds to assist our daughter, Kristen, with the cost of medical expenses for her guide dog, Nedra. Kristen was diagnosed with Jeune Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder causing small stature, renal failure, as well as retinitis pigmentosa; legal blindness. In August 2001, Kristen received the greatest gift, a black Labrador Retriever named Nedra from Southeastern Guide Dogs in Palmetto, Florida. Nedra has assisted our daughter with gaining her independence, Bachelor’s Degree from Barry University and maintaining an administrative assistant position at a non-profit organization. Nedra has been not only a set of eyes but a loving member of the family. Nedra has been diagnosed with Laryngeal Paralysis, causing severe respiratory distress. Presently she has been placed in an oxygen chamber until her breathing and vital signs stabilize and surgery can be scheduled.The cost of x-rays, ICU, anesthesia, surgery, prior and after care is more than our family can afford since I am also disabled. I am a Stage 4 Cancer survivor but will have to spend 2 days a week in the hospital for the remainder of my life. PLEASE Help us give Nedra the chance she so deserves. She has served Kristen faithfully and we can't let her down.
