Abigail's Successful Surgery 9/11/17
Abigail's Surgery was a Success!
First, let us say thank you again for your tremendous generosity. Due to your donations, we are thrilled to say that Abigail and her mother arrived in India last week and Abigail had a successful six hour surgery on Monday, 9/11, and her prognosis is good. Fatu Bangura, one of the board members of Angels to Angels, is there to help coordinate with the hospital and support Abigail and her mother. Fatu is invaluable in getting all the right information and discussing medical care with the doctors.
Abigail and her mother are beyond thankful for your support, generosity and well wishes. We truly could not have done this without you. We all thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Her mother has been on an emotional rollercoaster - touched by the generosity of strangers and by the severity of what her daughter is going through and the road ahead to keep her healthy and recovering. Please be assured, that your donation has made a difference in saving a life. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Our Go Fund Me appeal raised enough to cover the cost of the surgery - THANK YOU AGAIN! The other costs of her care, flights, hotel, food, after care, etc. will be about another $5-7,000. We are still scrambling to get the word out and try and raise more money so that she has the best chances of survival post op. We have come so far - we need to get her well and keep her there.
Abigail is going to have a rough road ahead with her recovery, so donations are still needed to pay for incidentals and as always, we expect there to be unforeseen costs moving forward. Please pass along the link to our GoFundMe page or forward our story to family and friends that might be inclined to help:
I know so many of you have been so very generous in supporting our educational goals and this has come out of nowhere, but we just could not turn away from helping her.
We are committed to staying on task and on our mission statement of educating young girls and see this particular fundraiser as an exception to what we intend to do. Thanks to all of you who donate to both of our commitments. It is beyond generous.
With sincere thanks!
