Tracy Wirtz-Deckman has had a rough last couple of months. She has been seeing doctors for several months and not properly diagnosed until about 3 weeks ago. The cardiologist found that Tracy had a very weak heart, was admitted into the hospital for a simple test, that turned into a 2 week stay in ICU and 2 open heart surgeries. She now is home with her new pacemaker, recovering. She will be stronger and better than ever soon, but has rehab for a while and is on a medical leave from work. Tracy is self-employed as a Caretaker and when she is off work she doesn't get paid. We invite all of you to come out and show you have a heart and some love as we raise money to help Tracy with her rent, utilities, cost of living and prescriptions.

Because she refuses to ask for help and a recent surgery has rendered her unable to work, we'd like to assist her with the mountains of medical bills that are accumulating at a ridiculous rate.
