My name is Jessica and I have a beautiful 7 year old daughter that we call KK. In 2014 our lives changed when I found out I would need multiple surgeries to remove my entire large intestine. I have ulcerative colitis. I was diagnosed with it when I was pregnant with KK. I was sick in a flare, and no matter what treatments I was given, my body became progressively worse. I was at a point where I was incontinent and had to wear Depends because I had bowel accidents daily. Life revolved around my illness. I spent my daughter’s 2nd Birthday in the hospital. I came home long enough to celebrate, and ended up right back in the hospital. By my third trip, we discovered that the meds I was being given had caused me to get pancreatitis. I was frustrated, and felt hopeless that I would ever get better. I had 4 surgeries that year, one that was an emergency to repair perforated intestine. My last surgery was on 12/31, as I needed to get the surgery in before the year was over, to avoid additional costs. My hospital bills are well over $100k. I lost my house because I couldn’t keep up with the mortgage. We moved in with my mom temporarily until I could finally get an apartment for us to live in. But my daughter has certainly suffered. She has lost out on things normal kids her age get to experience because “mommy can’t afford it”. I’m just looking for a little relief. A bit if breathing room, where maybe i can give her something she’s never had. I’d love to take to an amusement park. Maybe get her to a beach for a few days. Can you help me make her dreams come true?
