Event for Connie's Fund

Hello Everyone! One of Conway's biggest fans, Carol Stadler, has graciously volunteered to organize a fundraising event to benefit Connie and help out with the health insurance premiums (COBRA) and lodging, etc. for his trip to Michigan. On August 24th, from 5pm-8pm, we hope you can make it out to the Applebee's in St. Peters for some food, fellowship and fun--for a great cause! You will also have the opportunity to purchase a "Pray 4 Conway" wristband and give Greg and Mary Kathleen a hug on Connie's big cath/pre-op day. Click on the link above for directions. You MUST present the coupon in order to have a portion of your meal donated to Conway's fund.

Hi, I've been reading the posts since Nicole forwarded it to me. Praying ofr a successful surgery and recovery. I also wanted to direct you to a site that assist with medical related travel. THey funded Hayden's cough vest at $17k and are the only foundation we've found that the income requirments are not all that strict since we make too much money wiht all others. This is what they can cover. Just for future reference all though they have quick turn-around time.
Expenses Covered:
Treatment: Expenses associated with clinical procedures, medicine, therapy, prosthesis, etc.
Equipment: Expenses associated with wheelchairs, assistive technology equipment, care devices, hearing aids, etc.
Displacement: Expenses associated with families of seriously ill children who must travel away from their home during treatment—lodging, food, gas, parking and transportation
Vehicle modifications: Expenses associated with lifts, ramps and transfer boards.
