About Our Auction

Hi, my name is Brianna and I’m starting this fundraiser for my mom and dad. My mom and dad had left for their 2 week vacation to the Dominican Republic on Monday April 24, 2023 and on April 28, 2023 I received a call from my dad letting me know that my mom was rushed to the hospital in the Dominican Republic and was unsure of what was going on. After many hours of waiting we were told that she had an ulcer that ruptured and perforated her stomach. By the time she came out of a very emergent surgery, she had her appendix, spleen and 12% of her stomach removed due to the ulcer. She was placed in a medically induced coma to let her body rest due to the damage the ruptured ulcer has done to her body. She has since been awake and slowly healing, but it has been an uphill battle ever since. It has been a week since the surgery and she is still in the ICU in the Dominican and is currently battling an infection at the surgical site and fluid in her lungs. Insurance, the surgeons they have in Canada and the Untied States going over her paperwork plus her surgeon in the Dominican have all said it is to dangerous for her to fly home due to the condition her body is in post op. Thankfully, they do have insurance but not everything has been covered 100% for them and unfortunately the bills here don’t just disappear. They were due home Monday, May 8th, 2023, but due to the fluid build up in her lungs and infection at the surgical site, they are putting her into another surgery to try and fix all of the post op issues she has had. They are keeping her admitted for another week hoping they can get everything under control. It has been incredibly hard and stressful for everyone involved as there is so little we can do here for them, and they are doing the best they can under the set of circumstances they’ve been given.
I would like to raise some money for them so when they do finally make it home, they have the funds to pay the bills that have been incurred due to her medical emergency as well their monthly bills here at home because my mom will be unable to work for a while even once she is back and my dad will not be at work when he was scheduled to be back because he is taking care of her while she is in hospital.
All of the money raised will go to any bills that have been incurred during this time for them.

Just an update on my mom, she has had a second surgery to attempt to fix the post op complications and are now trying to put her through a third surgery.
Insurance has given the recommendation for medical evacuation but are only covering $25,000 of the 87,000 it is going to cost to EMS flight her back to Canada.

UPDATE:
Insurance has stepped up and is covering the medical flight to get my mom home, so all proceeds to this auction will go to any bills incurred from being away for 3 weeks and to help while my mom is not working!
