Mother of Three Reunited with Her Three Kids After a Three Hour Medivac Flight from Denver Colorado
Kristin has been diagnosed with a rare neurological condition that only one in 10,000,000 people get diagnosed with. It's called OMS - Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome, caused by the GAD antibody which makes her the 3 case ever diagnosed.
Kristin and her husband Kyle were both stuck in Denver, Colorado from what was supposed to be a family summer vacation. Kyle and Kristin have three kids ages 2, 3 and 4. These young children were flown back to Florida two weeks ago and are staying with relatives. The oldest started school this week and her parents were not there to be by her side on her first day.
They have no end in sight and no medical insurance to get her home. So I started by asking for 100 people to donate $180 to medivac her to a Florida hospital. The little insurance they have will only transport her 100 miles and she has already been in a Colorado hospital for 4 weeks. We received enough money to Fly Kristin Home! The plane has left Denver and is en-route to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
Medivac services have been provided by American Jets, Inc. American Jets, Inc. has grown to become the worldwide leader for providing superior air ambulance service. You can learn more about their service by visiting http://www.AmericanJets.net
North Broward Medical Center on Sample Road and I-95 CEO Pauline Grant along with Dr. Ridwan Lin have reviewed the case and have agreed to accept Kristin to their facility.
The commitment of our community coming together to help is shown and the donations are continuing to come in. The family is going to have an extreme amount of medical bills so we are still collecting for this great cause and will help get get her well and this amazing family back to normal.
