Our 13 year old daughter, Gabrielle, requires extended, specialized medical treatment in Falls Church. This will create expenses that we are asking our friends and family to help us offset so she will get the best treatment possible for a full recovery.

Gabrielle, our 13 year old daughter, has been dealing with severe gastro-intestinal problems since October 2014. She has just been discharged after spending 14 days at CHKD in Norfolk, VA where she was connected to a feeding tube and IV to help her get the nutrition she needs. Now, she has been transferred to a specialist in Falls Church for additional treatment. Her treatment from CHKD resulted in a diagnoisis of avoidance-restricive food intake disorder, with atypical anxiety and moderate depression. While a treatment plan is not fully developed she is currently in need of inpatient care in a specailized treatment facility. Out of pocket medical expenses are already over $5000.

Treatment will require frequent travel between Hampton, VA and Falls Church VA as well as lengthy hotel stays in the area. The trip to Falls Church is 172 miles. It is likely that Mom and Dad will need to either make multiple trips per week or, more likely, stay in a hotel near the hospital. Currently, the doctors do not know how long Gabrielle will need to stay hospitalized. In addition to travel, Mom and Dad will need to take time off work to support Gabrielle.

Donations received will go towards the travel related expenses such as gas, food, and hotels. Donations will also be used to cover any medical expenses not covered by insurance.

So far, Gabrielle has recieved an outpouring of gifts, visitors and covered in prayers. The family has also had many others ask if they can do anything. If you are one of those wondering what you can do, this is it! ANY donation is helpful. Gabrielle has all of the creature comforts she needs. And, while gifts are nice, her room has limited space. Please make a donation to ease the financial burden on the family. Mom and Dad will make sure that Gabrielle knows each and every person who donates to her recovery.

We are confident this is all a part of God's perfect plan for Gabrielle and her family and fully understand that God, the ulitmate healer will bring us to the end. Please put Gabrielle and her family on your prayer lists and feel free to share this with anyone you believe could have an impact on her recovery in any way.
