Todd and Tammy Smith trained many Alaskan gun owners through their company, GunStart. They have been strong advocates for 2A causes, and their work has saved some lives and improved many more. They’re now in a situation where they could use some help.
Abigail, the youngest of their ten children, was born with a heart condition which a generation ago would have been deemed Incompatible With Life. The combination of modern medicine and this child’s inherited strong will to survive has kept her, the second youngest of the Smiths’ ten children, alive for fifteen years. That life is now in peril.
Her long years of medical issues left her with vulnerabilities. She recently suffered what for you and I would be a simple skinned knee, but her condition caused it to snowball into toxic shock. She is now in extremis. The doctors said her only chance was to get her to specialists in Seattle by LifeFlight, but before she went on board she coded. The doctors brought her back to life, and the Emergency angels got her to Seattle.
She is alive, on dialysis and comatose, her parents at her side. As you might expect, the expenses are enormous and growing exponentially.
Gail and I have donated. We hope you will too.
The Smiths are a devout family, and I know your prayers for Abigail Smith will be deeply appreciated as well.
