DriveTime is hosting 50 events across the country for the first ever DriveTime Kids in Need 5K Fun Run! Each dealership will represent a DriveTime customer's family that has a child with a recent or current medical need.
DriveTime is donating a minimum of $65,000 to 134 kids in need nationwide. Join us in helping give back to our communities by donating today!
Here's the story of Maddison, one of the children your donation will support:
Maddy was born premature in the seventh month to my sixteen year-old son she had hydrocephalus and we did not know until she was eight months old and in the hospital, fighting for her life. We were told the devastating news that she had hydrocephalus and she wiould need brain surgery immediately .
The left and right ventricle in her brain had complete blockage which was causing her brain to swell. They had to do a cranial ectomy to relieve the pressure and she was in Texas Children's Hospital in Houston for three weeks. She survived this surgery and now carries a catheter in her skull.
Due to her health issues I had to stop working. My then 16-year-old's girlfriend gave her up for adoption and my husband and I adopted her. The doctors told us the shut down in her brain will happen again, we just don't know when , meaning I cannot leave her alone. Thank you for your consideration Respectfully, David and Linda.
