Help bring their Mommy home!

Our dear friend Kayla, a 29 year old mother of three, was living a happy and normal life... until last week, when her and her children's world was shattered and filled with fear and loneliness. Kayla suffered from a blood clot in her brain, which ultimately lead to a stroke that robbed her of her vision and her ability to walk. While under medical care, doctors then discovered a hole in Kayla's heart. While Kayla sat blinded and fearing for her life, all she could think about was will she ever see her children again.

Her three children took quite the toll as well. They were uprooted from their community and familiar surroundings, moving in with relatives that are trying their hardest to support these children under such difficult circumstances (as well as young children of their own).

Kayla is able to speak, albeit slurred, and her condition is improving, but there is a long road ahead of them. Kayla will be needing at least one if not more surgeries within the coming weeks. Additionally, Kayla was the main financial earner in the family, working long hours, at a job which entailed using a computer 90% of the time. With Kayla's current vision, even when she is well enough to leave the hospital, she won't be able to return to work.

We turn to you to help us fill the financial void in this family's life. They have no means to pay their mortgage or even to buy groceries. Please help Kayla recover without the constant fear that her family is struggling to meet basic needs. Please help these children get past this very difficult and worrying time of their lives. Every penny counts! And above all, please keep Kayla in your prayers.

All funds will be handed directly to the family, to be used for medical expenses, mortgage, schooling, groceries, and utilities.

Thank you very much
