For those of you that know are beautiful, intelligent, sweet 13-year-old daughter Annelise, you know that she was hospitalized last Wednesday and is currently in Las Vegas Nevada. Annelise has struggled with depression, anxiety, and was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. On Wednesday night Annelise Cut herself over 200 times and was taken to the hospital in Kingman, Arizona. She then was transferred to a hospital in Las Vegas and due to the severe nature of her depression and anxiety she is being transferred to a long term Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. For those of you not familiar with how far that is from Kingman it’s approximately 3 1/2 to 4 hours away. Annelise will be in this hospital for 6 to 12 months while we work on stabilizing her bipolar disorder and she works on the coping skills she needs. We are happy that she is safe and getting the help she needs and we are heartbroken that she will be so far away from home for so long. We are doing this go fund me page because the cost of us doing weekly trips to and from Phoenix is more than our family can financially bear. We’re asking for community support both from our friends and family as well as anybody who may be able to help us. We are looking into local fundraisers and I will be auctioning off some baskets and selling some of our belongings. We will do whatever we need to do to be able to be the support system Our daughter needs. Thank you to everyone who has been so loving and understanding during this time because this is emotionally crushing to all of us as we know Annelise has so much life to live.
