5/5/14 Vista continues to do very well.  She should be home from the hospital in the next day or so.  Up next cardiac rehab.  Please continue to keep Vista and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

5/1/2014 Vista is in surgery this morning.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!!

PLEASE SEE UPDATES!!!

Friends,

Vista has been diagnosed with an AORTIC ANEURYSM.  This MUST be repaired SOON by means of OPEN HEART SURGERY.  As we all know Vista is a very proud momma to 3 children.  Dalton, Wyatt and Gracie.  Vista will be unable to work for at least 10 weeks.  She is a single mom.  She is a nurse and spends her days caring for others.  Now she needs to learn how to let others care for her, even if only for a short time.

We need to raise money to help her during this time.  Even if you can only donate 5 dollars it will help ease the burden.  The stress of finances should not be something our friend worries about during this time. 

Vista DOES NOT HAVE INSURANCE. We have exhausted all avenues because if the ACA she currently can only purchase short term insurance and this type of plan includes pre existing conditions. She must wait until the next open enrollment to purchase insurance that will cover this surgery. 

Friends she does not have an option to wait. This is the reason our goal has increased and after her visit with the doctor Monday it may increase again. 

Please share donate and pray!

We have an account set up for Vista that you may donate to if you would rather send a check instead of donating online. 

Please send your donation to:

AUSTIN BANK
766 WEST MAIN
PO BOX 883
VAN, TEXAS 75790

Please make checks payable to:

  1. A note from our friend Vista

    I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for all of your prayers, calls, messages, FB post and visits. Although I can't read much of what has been posted right now because it's just so overwhelming and emotional I want you to know you are lifting my kids up! These three kids are who I live for and what a beautiful life it is. Last night makes two nights of Grace sleeping in the dark. She m...eans no more of the scary dreams that have spilled over to bad thoughs, anxiety and sadness during her day since last week. Thanks to her teachers at VJH for letting her call home whenever she needs to. Van High School as well. Wyatt's teachers coaches and their wives. Coach Harvey and Coach Moffat you are a blessing to my son. The Longhorn Family, Coach Strong and your staff thank you for taking care of my oldest baby! God bless you and Blessings to you all.
    Love you V

I want to take a minute and thank EVERYONE who has donated. Whether it be 1 dollar or many dollars each one of you has touched this family. Please continue to share we are far from covering the expense of surgery. 

On Monday I will update the site with more detailed information on Vista ' s surgery as well as a more detailed explanation of the expenses that your donations are covering. 

I personally would like to acknowledge the Longhorn Nation. I am impressed with the compassion that they have shown and continue to show. 

Please continue to pray for this family.

God Bless you all
