Ethne is in urgent need of a gastric bypass surgery or she will lose her life. The doctor has given her less than 8 months left to live.

My loving and caring sister-in-law, Ethne McGuire, needs gastric bypass surgery which will save her life. One of her doctors has recently diagnosed her with having cirrhosis of the liver from fatty liver disease and pancreatitis. He professionally advised her that if she does not have the surgery soon then he does not see her seeing Christmas this year. He says that she will have a heart attack or a stroke soon since her body is deteriorating so much.

Ethne has tried numerous of times to get her insurance to cover the costs involved which came back rejected. She just put in an appeal to the medical insurance company and they have denied the appeal so now we need to raise the money to have the surgery or we lose Ethne. The surgeon's bill is approximately $2,700.00 and the hospital bill together with the anesthesist and everything else comes to approximately $21,000.00.

There are very few good people left in this world. Ethne is one of them. Please help us spare her life and get her the surgery that she needs so she may continue to reach out to others as she has done throughout all of the years that I have come to know her as my sister,

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day. God blesses us every day she wakes up and I am certain He will bless those who reach out to help our beloved Ethne.

God bless you.
