Team Missy is working hard to raise money to help her family cover medical and related expenses so she can focus on fighting for her life.

Early morning on May 14th I found my wife convulsing in bed. Once she got to the hospital they told me she had 3 brain aneurysms and one had ruptured. She was flown to Theda Clark hospital where they immediately underwent brain surgery and they coiled the ruptured aneurysm. She then spent 14 days in the ICU neuro department recovering. She was released and is now home with us but has to a very long road ahead of her. We have two young boys, Jordan 12 and Austyn 9, who are very greatful to have her with us and are her everything in life. She has started therapy to gain strength and hopefully get her back to normal. She can no longer work and I have taken leave from work because she needs 24 hour care and supervision. She has therapy 3 times a week to regain speech, strength, and vision. We have to travel once a week to her specialists and have brain scans done and testing to make sure the other aneurysms have not ruptured and that the coiled aneurysm is not leaking as well as monitoring the swelling and blood that is around her brain is still going down. Once the blood and swelling is down, doctors are hoping around 4 weeks, she then has to undergo another surgery to fix the second aneurysm which is larger and will need coiling and a stent. This will be another hospital stay and more time away from her children but Missy is a fighter and is trying to stay positive through all of this. She has extreme pain in her head and unfortunately the blood has pooled around her spine as well causing her intense pain in her spine and legs as well but she does not complain and is greatful for every day she has to spend with her family. She is not allowed to do anything at all due to the aneurysms that are not fixed yet and doctors do not know if she will ever be able to return to work but we are taking one day at a time. With both of us not working and the bills piling up, not to mention the medical bills we will soon begin to see I am asking for help to pay our bills so she has a home to come home to. We have never asked for anything she takes great pride in how hard we have worked for everything we have. She is a caregiver and takes care of others for a living and love what she does and now it is my turn to take care of her and do what I have to to make sure she gets better and is with us for years to come but to do this I am asking for help to cover medical and living expenses while we fight this terrifying battle. We believe in miracles and are praying for one every day. Her life and the lives of me and our two young boys have changed forever but we truly believe god only gives us what we can handle and I know she will fight to get through this. It will be a long and painful road but we are ready to travel this road with her. Please show your support in any way you can.
