The friends of Kristen Galante are uniting to raise money to help her come home and be with her family. Medical expenses/Home alterations.

Have you ever experienced that feeling that you get after helping others? It is time for you all to get a sense of that amazing feeling by helping a dear friend of ours in need.

Our friend Kristen Galante has suffered many medical issues over the years.
She is in complete kidney failure and is on dialysis which has taken a major toll on her well being.

After a long and costly process to have a child, she is now a first time mom. Now she has spent most of her daughters first 2 years of her precious growing life in the hospital suffering from one severe illness after another. She has missed watching her sweet little girl grow up! As if missing her husband and little girl wasn’t bad enough, she is now facing many other unexpected challenges.

Kristen has grown weak and is now restricted to a wheelchair as she has just become so beat down from all her medical trauma, and will need to make adjustments to the house. They are in desperate need of a wheel chair lift and ramp before she can even think of returning home to her family. This has caused a major financial burden and has added stress to an already challenging situation on the family and loved ones.

She continues to fight a daily struggle to get stronger everyday both physically as well as emotionally. You can imagine how difficult this journey has been for her and her family.

During these challenging times, her husband Rich has become a single father who juggles work, visiting Kristen and coming home exhausted to care for a very energetic toddler. It hasn't been easy for anyone including their loving family that has been given there time to help raise Abby.

We are hoping to ease some of their financial worries with a fundraiser for the Galante family. Please find it in your heart to make a donation to Kristen’s fundraiser and help her to raise money for the needed house alterations, medical
expenses, and ongoing financial help they will need for the future. We would like to get Kristen back home to her family, and begin to establish some normalcy once again.

Since this will be an ongoing struggle for the Galante’s, we will be putting together some more fundraising events in the near future. Right now, they just need some quick money, so Kristen can come home to her family.

Thank you so much for your thoughts, prayers and/or donations.

From everyone that loves Kristen.
