Hi,


I'm Dougie McKay. My little Nieces are only 6 years old and were born with a rare condition called Craniopagus. This is a condition where they are conjoined at the head. They have had a very difficult life of medical emergencies and treatments. Although you might not see the pain on their smiling little faces, I can tell you that I have witnessed their difficulties. The hardest part is that my sister Felicia (their mother) and my mother have spent all of their money and all of their time caring for these angels. They are now living in an apartment with stairs and not enough room to allow them the freedom to move and grow as they need to.

I feel saddened every time I see them struggling to get up the stairs. The ordeal they have to go through, just to use the toilet is horrible. The apartment is just too small and it isn't designed to accommodate people with their needs.

My dream is to see them in a decent sized house with the right adjustments to suit their needs. A modest back yard to allow them to run and play would be very nice too.

Will you please help us put the money together to make their lives more tolerable. All contributions will help. Thank you in advance for anything you can do for them.

Why is nobody in the family working if this is so important to them? Daddy dearest said on national TV, working wasn't important to him.

Hi Everyone i get that some of you don't understand why daddy dearest isn't working, but if you lived with or knew my daughter in a personal way you would understand that the comment he made was made for a good reason. My daughter Felicia is not of good health she suffers from anxiety and depression as well as daily migraines that are so bad that she sometimes for days at a time cant function. She has been to many specialist who only throw more drugs at her instead of trying to find the reason for her migraines in the first place. So some of the drugs she has tried make her sleep and some would make her so out of it she can't function. This can go on for weeks and then she will have a bit of a break where the migraines can be tolerable and then without warning they can hit and be unbearable. So i hope this clarifies a bit, it is not that my son in law doesn't want to work its because the love of his wife and family and their health and well being come first. The possibility of getting a home big enough for all of us to be together again would change that as i would be able to be near to look after the kids and my daughter and Brendan could do what he loves to do construction. The girls are doing well they are 9 now and in grade 4 and loving school and enjoying things that 9 yr old girls love to do play with their dolls and play pretend. Thank you to all that have given and those that plan to give. We appreciate your help getting to our goal. ♥

Comments by Guy Furet. This is one of the best causes I've seen. It makes sense that these girls and their family need more room.
