Hello friends and family! We are Lauren and Omar, brother-sister tandem for this fundraiser. In the picture is our little sister Lyca, our little miracle. She was born premature, only weighing a little over 1 lb. After a risky hospital transfer, surviving an epidemic that caused death to many infants in the NICU and a near-death episode in the hospital, we later on learned that she was born blind and then diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Through all these threats to her life and health, Lyca has always been the picture of a happy and blessed child, and she has always been a strong reminder of God's presence for us. The sense of purpose and joy she has instilled in our family has inspired my parents to adopt her and make her officially part of our family.

As she is fast growing and transitioning to her teen years (she's turning 13 in July), she needs a change of her home wheelchair, travel wheelchair, and bath chair, for which we are raising total of $2500. Currently, she is under the loving care of our parents in the Philippines, whom we'd like to support and provide with proper equipment to making caring for her easier.

Since our parents have long retired with very little medical support for Lyca's special needs (as it is, in the Philippines), our family needs help raising funds. We would like to ask you to help with any amount you can give for us to continuously support our happy, little sister. :)
