Your Donations Make a Difference for a Family of Five after Father's Battle with Covid-19 Results in Lung Transplant
On Sunday, January 2, LCC staff member Dianna Bonfield delivered a check with your donations to St. Peter, Schaumburg, Illinois, that is assisting a family in need.
A family from Missouri is relocating to Illinois due to the medical needs of the father, who, after having survived COVID-19, needed a double lung transplant which he received in September at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. As a surgery requirement, he and his two caregivers must be within 50 miles of the hospital for one year.
His wife and 18-year-old daughter, his caregivers, are moving to Chicago on January 15th. Matthew will be discharged on January 19th from the rehab facility. LCC is assisting St. Peter, Schaumburg, in finding a two-bedroom place and raising money to help with the family's rent and everyday living expenses.
If you have or know of a place that falls within the family's needs, please email Nikki Deacon at ndeacon@Lutheranchurchcharities.org or prayerfully consider donating to help this family in need.
