Greyson was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in March of 2018. In early September, his diagnosis was upgraded to severe and he was admitted into Avera Mckennan Hospital in Sioux Falls September 16th after he passed out in our home at 4:00AM on a Sunday. He has been in the hospital ever since and tomorrow (Oct 8th, 2018) he will be air-lifted to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Most likely, they will perform a colectomy which is removal of his colon. The recovery time is expected to be 3-4 more weeks. We are grateful for the opportunity to apply for this grant as the financial strain of not being able to work full time has become more pressing each week. Thank you!
