Please help us raise money for Alana's gallbladder test and surgery. Thanks for all your help and support. May God richly bless all of you!

Alana, my 16 year old daughter, has gallbladder disease and needs a HIDA test, which is a test were they inject a liquid faking out your gallbladder into thinking you ate fatty foods. This test can be very painful, and I wish she didn't have to take the test. Although Alana's doctor has ruled out all but the gallbladder as the problem, they will not do surgery without this test. This test is estimated at just over $2,000. My insurance is a high deductable and anything performed at the hospital is not covered until this deductable is reached ($5,000). Renown will not schedule this test until we have at least 50% of the estimated cost. Unfortunetly with the economy the way it is, and raising two teenagers by myself, I have no money to put towards this test. Alana is living with a constant pain and cannot do any excersising under her current condition. Per her other doctor she is suppose to be excersising to keep her thyroid and blood sugar under control. That is one of those 'catch twenty-two's' we come across often in life. Sometimes Alana gets gallbladder attacks that include severe pain and stops her in her tracks, and she is unable to cope. It is really hard to see her in such pain. Many of you see me as a strong person, but I'm not as strong as you might think, I have my moments when I don't know what to do next. I thank Jesus for being by my side to help me at times like these. Please pray for Alana to be healed and receive the necessary treatment. I thank everyone for helping in anyway you can, and may God bless everyone, whether you can give money or just prayer, we are very thankful. When the money for the test is complete there is another link for Alana's surgery alanassurgery
