SGT Michael Rigdon is stationed at Fort Sill, OK. He is married to Candice and they have 3 children. Their youngest child, a 2-year-old son named Jon, was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.
Jon is scheduled for another heart surgery at the end of September at the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. The Rigdon family will relocate to Dallas for the surgery and are expecting to be there for a month or longer. TRICARE only pays for the travel of one person to accompany Jon. The family has secured lodging at the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas for their stay. Candice does not have vacation time at her new job and will be taking unpaid leave during the time they are in Dallas. In addition their oldest daughter will stay in Oklahoma for school and SGT Rigdon will need to travel back and forth to check on her.
The Rigdon family needs your help with travel expenses getting back and forth to Dallas, increased food expenses they will incur and to cover some of Candice’s lost income.
Please donate to SGT Rigdon’s cause.
