When we ask for your support it is usually so that we can help our homeless veterans return to self-sufficiency but today it’s one of our own, who serves our veterans each day, in need of help.
Lindsey Bennett, Coordinator of Special Needs at HVAF’s Warman property, gave birth to her daughter, Skylar, on March 17. Skylar was born with a serious, life-threatening congenital heart defect. Lindsey has created a blog, http://skylarsheartblog.com/ to provide updates for family and friends. She has also created a separate fundraising page for contributions as they raise money for medical expenses and needs. If you would like to help the Bennett family you can contribute by going to her fundraising page.
Skylar’s heart defect requires 3 life-saving surgeries: one at 1 week old, one around 6 months, and one between the ages of 2 and 3. She will spend up to 6 weeks in the hospital with her while she recovers from the first surgery. Lindsey tells us the time between the first and second surgeries is the most precarious because any sicknesses or infections could be fatal.
Lindsey has and will continue to serve our homeless veterans well. Please keep her family and baby in your prayers. She has 3 other children at home.
