Please Help Baby Willow

Hey everyone baby Willow needs your help!! This is every parents worst nightmare! A local gravenhurst family's lives are turned upside down after their 2 year old daughter Willow had a 2 hour long seizure. Baby Willow also known affectionately as "peanut" contracted a viral infection and had a fever induced seizure on Friday March 9th. She was taken to Orillia Memorial hospital where she was temporarily stabilized. Then on Sunday the 11th she suffered another 28 "mini" seizures in a 6hr period and was then airlifted to sick kids hospital in Toronto where she suffered stroke like symptoms paralyzingly the left side of her body. Dr's did an extensive MRI on her brain and found that the right side was swollen causing what they're calling "temporary paralysis" of her leftside. The neurologist made a 3" incision in the side of her head to take a biopsy of her brain as well as inserting a prob to monitor the activity to try and determine why the swelling occurred. Thus far no explanation has been found. It's been a week and a half since Willow was admitted, the seizures have slowed down and the swelling has reduced a little but the left side paralysis is still present... We've started this go fund me to try and help Peanut and her parents and her other 3 siblings with the extra medical costs and special requirements that Willow will need down the road. I know times are tough, heck when aren't they? But this family is in need of our help, so anything you can give would go along way in helping little Peanut. Pls help if you can and pls repost this to your timeline! We need to get this out there to as many people as we can!! Please people let's help Baby Willow!!!
Ryan and I have worked together for almost 4 years now. It's just the two of us in a small department at McLarens press in gravenhurst. As a result we have become very close friends. He's like a younger brother to me, we've been through trials and tribulations through the years and during that time I have helped Ryan privately with personal endeavours before the go fund me account. I watched him go from being a single man wanting a family to meeting Sandra who is a wonderful woman and a caring mother to now having two children of his own with Sandra. Ryan Dicks will be named soul beneficiary of this campaign...
