Baby Amara's medical care expenses

Amara is a bright, happy curious 17 month old baby who  has a ready smile and who loves to make people laugh. She was born with a condition that  would have resulted in her losing her kidney. Thankfully she just received the surgery she needed. 

 Amara was in the hospital for 5 days and her mom was with her the entire time. 

 Amara's mom, Ashleigh is a young woman with a can do attitude. She has overcome a lot of hardships by being proactive, digging in and doing what has to be done to make things work out. Even in the face of hardship, she doesn't hesitate to take time to help other people, listen to them and help them to find solutions when they come to her with problems. She has an excellent work ethic and prides herself on giving her all.  

As a single mom, Ashleigh's income is the sole support for her family.

She works long hours administrating a small non profit company  that doesn't provide sick leave or vacation pay and she wasn't able to get paid medical leave to help offset the costs & the time needed to care for Amara's needs during her surgery and recovery time.

 Her small savings are gone, it's a new month, the bills are piling up and there is no money to cover the rent, utilities and food.  She is in dire need of financial help to keep things afloat due to losing all income while caring for Amara's needs. 

Amara was blessed with a wonderful medical team. She's doing a good job of healing.  The Doctors are hoping that her kidney will repair itself over time and thanks to her mother's  presence and loving care, she is  even back to making mischief now and then!

Amara's mom urgently needs help to cover the living expenses that are due now.  She is keeping a positive outlook but the stress and worry is really wearing her down.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about Amara's and Ashleigh's situation. Whatever you can help with will really make a difference and be most sincerely appreciated. 

Blessings to you.
