Support for Brooke’s surgery

Campaign Created by: Jennifer Shanahan

The funds from this campaign will be received by Brooke Shandonay.

Goal: USD $20,000
Raised: USD $ 580

Brooke was born with a very rare condition called Choanal Atresia. For years, doctors referred to it as a narrow nasal passage. Surgery was scheduled when she was a child, but due to a growth plate in the area the ENT decided not to do the surgery. Brooke has recently seen an ENT who identified it as Choanal Atresia, a rare condition that happens in only 1 out of 7,000 births. It does require surgery to correct. This surgery is extremely painful, yet necessary for Brooke to better her quality of life and allow her to breathe much better. Brooke is a wife, a mother of six and a homeschool mom. They do not currently have insurance for Brooke, and the cost of insurance in addition to this pre-existing condition has caused them to make the decision to pay for this surgery out of pocket. As her family, we want to support this beautiful family any way we can. We are grateful for any financial support for them as well as prayers for her as she goes through this process.

Hi everyone! Brooke’s surgery is set for December 27th. We are so thankful that the first ENT she reached out to specializes in this unique surgery.

I’d like to request prayer for wisdom for Brooke’s doctor, as well as lift Brooke up as she prepares for this big surgery! We are praying for good life altering changes for Brooke and that this kid of ours will finally be able to breathe like the rest of us! 

Thank you to all who have donated so far, here, as well as in person. We chose Give, Send, Go because of their minimal fee structure and faith based business model.
