Everyone is coming together to help Heather raise the deductible for her surgery. The smallest amount helps a ton.

Heather has reoccuring sinusitis and airway destruction, caused by a tumor and a cluster of polyps that have formed in her ethmoid sinus cavity. They have to take them out and repair the sinus cavity, and even though she's not getting cut open, the surgery could go wrong and she could lose full use and function of her left eye. Since it is in the ethmoid cavity, it is directly behind her eye, which has been causing pressue on her optical nerve and causing vision loss, migraines, loss of smell and taste. If they don't remove the tumor and polyps, it will keep growing and continue to put pressure on her optical nerve. Eventually it will completely pinch off that nerve and her eye will literally die, and they will have to remove it.
