A special note to our family and friends:
We are so grateful for all of the emails, texts, and calls telling us that you care, you are praying for us and you want to help us with our needs. We apologize that we have been out of touch lately. We are putting all of our time and energy into ensuring that we are getting the best care for our girls. The stress is sometimes overwhelming and we often only have time to talk with each other. Many of you have asked how you can help us during our journey, especially as we soon embark on the transplant road for Eden. There are a few things, and please know that we hesitated putting this information on our blog as it might appear that we’re “asking” for something more than prayers but after much urging from friends and family we decided to post it one time here.
So below are some ways that you can help if you so desire:
We will face many challenges throughout the next few months and one of those may be finding financial resources for extra expenses like flights to TX, meals in TX and other unexpected costs. Because of this Scott’s sister has offered to set up a secure bank account. Read below if you’re interested:
Hi everyone who follows Scott and Amanda’s blog, I am Scott’s sister and aunt to their two precious babies Reagan and Eden. I love all of them with all my heart and want to help them in any way that I am able during the next few months when Eden will be facing lung transplant. Scott and Amanda may require funds to cover additional expenses in Texas. If you are willing to donate to them, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply contact the bank at the address listed:
Eden & Reagan Hedin Account

Our circle of friends has expanded to include those with children who are also medically fragile like our girls, below is a post from one of those people. Shelly has so generously offered to coordinate a way for us to get meals. Read below if you’re interested:
If you are reading this blog, you are faithfully following the Hedin's journey as a family and praying for Reagan and Eden. As people that love and support this sweet family, I'm sure a lot of you are looking for a practical way to help Amanda and Scott through this incredibly challenging time. I have set up a Meal Train where you can sign up to bring them a meal or send a gift card to a favorite restaurant. If you are interested in signing up, please email me at email@example.com and I will send you the link.
Finally, Scott’s mom will be coordinating a benefit to be held in or near Scott’s home town. To help and to get more details please read below.
A benefit will be hosted by Scott’s family and held shortly. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A big thank you to everyone again, no matter what amount of support you provide we are grateful for all of you.
