Ashley's Visual Bucket List
Her health struggles have continued as she and her family worked with doctors to repair the damage to done to her body during the years her liver didn't work properly and she is now facing a truly heartbreaking prognosis. She is going blind.
Retinal degeneration, likely caused by the toxins that built up in her body before her liver transplant, has continued and is progressing faster than originally thought. Recent tests show that in the last 11 months she has lost the same amount of sight as what doctors typically expect a person with this condition to lose in 5 years.
Doctors are predicting that she will be without sight within two to four years.
Please help her family give this sweet child spectacular memories to visualize after her sight is gone. All money raised here will be used for experiences and related travel expenses for the family as they give her as many experiences as possible before her sight is gone.
In just over a week we have not only met but surpassed our initial goal - a number that both her family and I thought was kind of a long shot. We just wanted to find some extra money to help pay for travel expenses.
Thank you from the very depths of our hearts and souls to all who have donated to make this sweet girl's bucket list be a truly amazing one!
Many heartfelt thanks go out to our anonymous donor who today singlehandedly took us from 50 to 100 percent of our goal. May all that is good in the universe come to you.
(P.S. We only increased the goal because, as shown today miracles - whatever or whoever their source - apparently really do happen. Thank you so much again to all who have donated so far!)
They are busy planning their first big adventure - a road trip to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the kaleidoscopic lights of Vegas. Stay tuned to #AshleysVisualBucketList to follow their journey.
They started this week by exploring Seattle and creating memories as a family (see the pictures!) and, thanks to your generosity, are gearing up to venture out into the world to create even more.
