Elaina's Eyesight-Michigan trip May2014

Elaina Faith Parker ("LAINEY") is blind due to complications of being a preemie, and in conjunction with Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP). 14 months ago friends organized a benefit to raise funds towards Wendy's responsibility of $30,000 in medical bills (for Elaina's $900,000 6 week stay in the NICU) and for ongoing medical costs and week long trips to Michgian in an effort to restore Lainey's vision (through multiple surgeries).

After 14 months of negotiating & paying medical bills, being unempoyed for 10 months and behind on mortgage, and ongoing accumulating bills, and 6 trips to Michigan for eye surgeries, the funds have been depleted and your help is much needed again.

Lainey is currently scheduled for her next eye surgery on February 26th, 2014 (left) and February 28th, 2014 (right).

The average trip to Michigan for Wendy, Lainey, and Wendy's mom is $2,500 for airfare, car rental, medically discounted hotel accomodations for a week, and meals. Along with more medical fees for each surgery. Trips were every 6 weeks, and are now ~ every 6 months.

Thank you for supporting my daughter Elaina's journey as we learn to take one day at a time together. The support means so much to me! Thank you for the continued prayers as well. We appreciate your ongoing moral support and generous donations.
