Karon Root   FENTON, MO
On Tuesday, February 5, 2013 we lost our sweet angel Kyra. One day after her 9th birthday.

If anyone wants to send love/cards:


The Root Family
6848 Big Creek Drive
House Springs, MO 63051


UPDATE May 1, 2013


The family is in serious crisis. They are facing eviction and the loss of everything........please help if you can.


If you know of a job for Raymond please contact the family at karon@karonroot.com

All they want is to be able to survive, move on, and keep fighting.


The family has faced many negative comments. FYI In an effort to be transparent.....they have listed their monthly expenses and wish people to know that the previous funds collected they used over the course of 20 months.


If you have any question or need to contact the family.....

UPDATE>>>>>>>>

She is in really bad shape.

Thank you to everyone I can't thank you enough.

Where the money has gone:
Early 2012: Disney....extra expenses $600
Early 2012: Medical/Transportation extras not covered $700
August 2012: Moving and getting into our home $1500
September 2012: Repairing our only vehicle (Tires, brakes, front axel, fuel system) $1200
Right now as of today 9/26/2012 there is $2,204.67 in her account.

We have some medical. We are looking to do the ramp before winter. And we are looking for a van.

As always PRAYERS are #1. Thank you for helping us.

We are in our home. And the love we feel from the community is amazing. We are trying to raise money for some of her specific needs that there is no way we can cover right now.

The ramp and the van are desperately needed and the other thing we feel we will not need because we are waiting for our miracle. If the unthinkable does happen we do not have a fund for that end.
