Dear Family and Friends,
Naomi (Nonie) Goettel was born and raised in Helena, MT. Through her career as a cosmetologist she has made many new friends and enhanced the lives of many old friends. Once you become a friend of Nonie’s you are a friend for life. She has a wonderful support system and we are calling on all of you to help her in her time of need.
In 2005 Nonie became ill and was diagnosed with an autoimmune hepatitis and liver disease. As a result she has been unable to work since 2006, due to medical treatments she was receiving. She has been placed on a transplant waiting list through Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR.
The uninsured medical costs that are associated with the transplant are monumental. She will need to be living in Portland for a minimum of three months after the transplant and travel to and from Portland before and after the transplant; the estimated cost to Nonie is $20,000. We have decided, in order to make the transplant happen a little easier for her, to set up a fundraising campaign with HelpHOPELive. HelpHOPELive is a non-profit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for over 28 years.
We greatly appreciate all of your love and prayers; if you wish to help Nonie then please make a tax-deductible contribution.
