P.S. All money deposits straight into Regina's account and does not come to me.
Update: First of all thank you to everyone that has helped out with donations so far. Second I want to tell you all something that has come to my attention. Many do not realize exactly how dire the situation with Tiana is. In my sensitivity to Regina, Tiana and Natalya's pride I was remiss in displaying the reality of life with Tiana. I know that they are a family that is private and that has a lot of pride and dignity so I hope they will forgive me but they need help. I had people approach me after I posted this that talked about how good Tiana looked in the pictures and because of that they were led to believe she is much better than she is so let me clear things up. A day in the life with Tiana means giving her her medicine through a feeding tube, changing her diapers, cleaning her up, and feeding her baby food just as you would a newborn. In fact that is a good description. She is like a newborn. Except with this newborn, she gets angry and is strong and she is much harder to pick up and move. She is in a wheelchair, she can not walk. She has to be turned to avoid bedsores. She has to have someone moved her limbs and help her excercise. Her speech is better sometimes than others but mostly it is a speech that a Mom or a sister can understand much like that of a baby. Her mother is out of work at the moment. She will probably never speak to me again for telling you that part. I won't go into details but suffice it to say places don't like it when you have to make your child your priority. I am going to show you Tiana today. This is Tiana at her sister's baby shower. It was one of the better days. This is not to exploit this situation. This is to help someone that is in desparate need. For Tiana there is no one sponsoring her to rebuild her home to be more wheelchair accessable, there are no fundraisers by radio stations and donations by big corporations, there are no trips for her family on a private jet to dinners with politicians and to give speeches because she isn't a cute little kid. I am not saying those families don't deserve every dime they get but it is not there for everyone. She and her family need money to help her needs just as much as anyone. She gets very little money for disability, it is not enough to cover the cost of most of her needs much less help with the every day essentials. It doesn't have to be much, if every friend of hers or her family gave a dollar it would help. One dollar, five dollars. Whatever you can spare. Be her friend.
