I am a single mother of two beautiful little girls! One is a very healthy active 10year old, and the other is sweetest little angel Gabby whom is 8 years with a smile that will shine a light on the darkest person in the room! Unfortunately my babygirl has been through so much durning the 8 years of her life, that the average human being couldn’t possibly bare! At only a few months old, my baby was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease! It’s a very rare condition that affects many people differently! For my baby girl it causes her muscles to get stiff and tense, she is unable to talk, walk, hear, or physically do anything for herself as well she has to have a feeding pump at night! Raising a disabled child is very challenging every single day as it hurts me to see that my baby will probably never live a regular life, but what keeps me going everyday is the beautiful glow of a smile that gives off! Although she may be experiencing all types of pain and problems due to her condition she is always smiling and laughing, which lets me know that my baby has hope! I am asking you all for any kind of donation to help me care for my babygirl, as u can imagine it’s definitely hard for me to work and keep a job as I have at least 2 to 3 doctors and therapy appointments every week! And i’ve been doing fairly good these whole 8 years of maintaining without the help! But as she is getting older, she getting bigger and some things Medicaid doesn’t cover, and well as some treatments aren’t covered! My baby needs a new chair, our home needs to be handicapped accessible, as well as other things!
There are only a handful of programs in the entire nation able to handle mitochondrial diseases as there is no cure and it’s so rare that they are no major studies to find one!
Everyday is a struggle and a blessing for us!
If you can find it in your hearts to be a blessing to us, we would greatly appreciate it! Anything will help!
