Funds being raised for mother

Amy Jo Hogan is a mother of four young children who was born with a disease called Aniridia, which means she was born with no irises in her eyes. She is not able to see. However, there is a surgery she can get to implant irises and she will be able to see. The surgery is $5,000 per eye. She has an anonymous donor donation for the first $5,000 but is trying to raise the other $5,000.

Please help us raise this for her. Donations can be made at any Chase Bank under the Amy Jo Hogan Irrevocable Trust.
