For those who know Dawn, you know God put a song of JOY in her heart. She loves all things color, song, flowers, and design, and her warm, cheery smile can light up any room! She has been a beautiful blessing to many of us as she uses her amazing voice and joyful personality to passionately share Jesus.
Dawn has been battling intestinal failure for the last seven years. She has endured countless tests, procedures, trial medications, and hospital stays. After a year of being on a feeding port and considering all options of healing before an intestinal transplant, she reached a place of needing the transplant.
Dawn's small intestine transplant operation took place Saturday, October 28th, and everything has gone very smoothly! She is making a great recovery thus far, praise God! Each day she is making great strides toward healing!
How you can support:
The first and foremost means to support Dawn and her husband Bart, is to pray. They sincerely appreciate, more than anything, the faithful prayers being offered on their behalf.
Considering air travel for Bart and the other caregivers over the coming months, accommodations and daily expenses (including the elevated living expenses in Washington, D.C.), the transplant travel allowance granted by the insurance company will be insufficient to cover the cost of travel from Kansas City.
1) Money donations would be helpful.
2) Donations could also be made in the form of airline miles for either American or Southwest Airlines. If that is something you'd like to contribute, please let us know through the YouCaring site and we can connect with you to make the appropriate arrangements for gifting the miles.
Through this entire season of trial, Dawn has not lost the song of joy God put her in heart. Her faith has remained firm in our Father who is faithful. Together, let’s be an army of prayer warriors for restored health, allowing Dawn to share that song again! Praising God she is on her way!
