Because Ellie has a "Multi-Dimensional" diagnosis, she is not a fit for our local hospitals and treatment centers due to her medical complexity. She requires a specialized treatment facility which means leaving the state and going to Texas. It has been explained to our family that there are few centers nationwide that are equipped to treat her, and none of which are covered by her insurance plan. We will be taking Ellie to the Lawlis Peavey PNP Center to assess ande treat her brian based disorder and brain growth in June.
We are a very close family with a strong faith and are asking for people to assist us with these needs. Please put Ellie and our family in your prayers and please pass this on to people you know. Once her medical issues are properly addressed and she is stabilized, the sky's the limit! Susan (mom) stays home fulltime to take care of Ellie and the family (and dogs) along with coordinating Ellie's medical appointments and drives her to whatever is necessary. Ellie currently volunteers at River Gardens (urban garden) each week and bakes bread/cooks in the kitchen for the CSA program for the community and would love to be able to do more! Any donations to the GO FUND ME account would be greatly appreciated. When all the dust settles, the family aspires to become active with making changes for individuals with mental suffering.
Please help us heal Ellie and don't underestimate her abilities!!
Thank you for your help!!
The Lewis-Schaefer Family
