delaney's diary

Delaney and family are traveling to Washington D.C. for medical care. As a life long friend, we are hoping to help Amanda and Matt with any current and future travel costs or medical bills in their persuit to give Delaney the best care possible. Any little bit helps. Let's fund Delaney!!!

A message from Amanda, Delaney's Mom...

Hi everyone, this is so hard for my family and I but my life long friend Brittany (King) Kidd gave me no choice; she was doing it with or with out me. (Editor's Note:  I can be bossy!)

There are 4 of us in our little family, Matt who is my husband and who we refer to as the "King." There's Dominick, our son, who is 9 years old and has a heart as big as this world. Then there's Delaney who is 5 years old who thinks she's the Boss, but she's not! Then there's me who just keeps it all going!

This is our Story, Delaney was diagnosed just about 3 years ago with a blood disorder called Von Willebrand's Brand's. That's where it all started, shortly after that, Delaney was sick a lot! I knew as a mother something just wasn't right! I would watch her sleep at night and know in my stomach I had to keep fighting. The last year has been brutal to say the least. We have seen 9 doctors and are on are way to Washington DC to see number 10. We are FIGHTERS, and we will NEVER give up. Doctor number 9 finally diagnosed her with something called Natural Killer Cell Deficiency. I could write for days about what she has been through in a year and let me tell you, most adults couldn't handle it let alone our little/big 5 year old girl. At 36 pounds wet, she certainly is the Strongest and Bravest Person I will ever meet in my Life. As we drive to DC, I know God only gives you what you can handle so I haven't asked "WHY?" this has happened to our family. I believe you're only given what you can handle. I sure hope this doctor can handle a STRONG FAMILY ready to take on the World, because I can tell you this, we will not go down with out a Fight...
As I always tell my kids, I make stuff happen everyday of my LIFE and that's what I intend to do In Washington DC!!!
