Today I want to share with you a Go Fund Me page for a woman named Erika Johns who loves to fish.
In fact, Erika is a 25 year old Pro Staff member for JoeBaggs Tackle, an avid angler and hunter, registered nurse and fly fisher. However right now Erika has encountered some challenges with her health, which is why I'm writing to you today.
For the past 15 days Erika has been in the hospital suffering from intense pain. Doctors are trying to solve the issue and have determined she is suffering from spontaneous intracranial pressure, among other ailments.
Erika has been down this road before. Her first tumor appeared at age 15, and since then she's gone through 8 brain surgeries. Yet despite all that she has continued to fish, and caught some awfully nice stripers, trout and other species!
This Go Fund Me campaign was started to help Erika pay her deductible. Right now her deductible for being in the hospital is $250/day, and currently she's been in the hospital for more than 15 days. Those deductibles are adding up quick!
Plus of course there are other expenses that need to be paid for, including deductibles for diagnostics, surgeries, medications, plus time out of work, transportation costs to and from appointments etc.
If you are able to help financially then a donation of $25 (or more) would be incredible. You can make a donation via her Go Fund Me page which you can access by clicking the button below.
If you are not able to help financially, then please send Erika some love and prayers, and share this post with your fishing friends who might be able to chip in a few bucks to help her offset mounting deductibles and other expenses.
With the support of the fishing community we hope to see Erika back out there catching stripers and other species as soon as possible! We're pulling for you and we wish you a quick and speedy recovery.
