#Ariannasride4life

Arianna is 9 years old, and has been in and out of Buffalo and Cincinnati Children's Hospital her whole life. Arianna began this journey with a benign tumor in her brain stem. After three major surgeries, she began her long recovery of healing with her Mom, Dad and siblings by her side. As a result of where the tumor was; she was greatly affected with left side weakness. This included her facial expressions, vocal chords (no speech), swallowing (feed via a G.I.Tube), sleep apnea (requires Oxygen for sleeping) and additional atrophy of her left side of her body. With continued medical support and support from her therapies, she began to thrive.

Arianna is one resilient little Angel, she is now able to walk short distances with support and continues to work hard at home, with the help of her Teachers, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy.

Unfortunately for the past three years, Arianna has had another serious obstacle to overcome with chronic lung infections (pneumonia) which has affected the left lung and has been hospitalized throughout this recurrent health issue. Most recent Arianna needed her left lung removed, and a tracheotomy. After going for a second opinion to Cincinnati Children's Hospital, they concurred that this was the only way that Arianna would be able to have a better quality of life. 

Arianna is once again scheduled to undergo another surgery a (laryngectomy) on Weds. Feb.15th 2017 at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. After this surgery she will no longer have a voice. We are praying this helps her to eliminate the life threatening illness she has.

This has been an ongoing challenge for the family, and we continue to fight and pray for a positive outcome with God's Blessings to provide Arianna with a better quality of life.

The donations will help with travel, food, rental car and stay while this operation is performed at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital.  

Please Pray 4 Arianna, the Family as they endure another surgery and travels to Cincinnati Children's Hospital :)
