Shayla and her family need help to pay for her medical bills and fuel to get to her appointments every single week. Please find it in your heart to help them out if you can. More ...
Shayla is a wonderful little girl who is about to turn 4 and she has an antibody deficiency and chromosome 17q12 deletion which also affects her immune system badly. She goes to physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy each week to help with the developmental issues that come along with it. She has weakness and brain loss in the left side of her brain. Recently she started blood transfusions in an effort to help her immune system to boost the white cell counts. However, one of the recent transfusions didn't go well. The doctors said she needs more tests done on her kidneys and liver because they are not producing anywhere near the levels they should be. They may be failing her. Her mom stays home with her and takes her to at least 3 appointments each and every week. Those appointments are 60+ miles away from their home. Along with the birth defects, Shayla has had a few seizures in that have caused her heart to stop. She has 3 sisters and 1 brother that also need to have some of their parents’ attentions so, as you can imagine, this keeps her mom and dad very busy. Her dad was working as much as he could to help pay for all the family needs as well as the gas it takes to drive to her appointments each week. But he was recently laid off. The social security the family gets for miss Shayla's disability doesn't help them out enough in making ends meet and actually giving the family a little cushion. So I am asking all that can to help get this wonderfully loving family get some money that they can use to help pay their bills, get fuel in their vehicles and maybe even have a long weekend away together as a family. My goal is to raise $2,000. They deserve this more than I can explain. They don’t know what the next step is in Shayla’s recovery, if there is one. So please help me in helping miss Shayla May and her family make some lasting memories with their cherished baby girl while they can.
