Aria's medical expenses

Aria needs our support! At just a few months old, Amanda and Ray started to notice that Aria was having some uncontrollable shaking episodes when going to sleep and waking up. They didn't think much of it but decided to have it checked out anyway. Not long after, it developed into left arm convulsions and left side weakness. After many tests and hospital stays, she was diagnosed with a congenital brain malformation in the right side of her brain which causes partial seizures on her left side. However, her seizures are unique and can last hours if not stopped by medical intervention because they do not stop on their own and so far have been resistent to medications, the longest one has been over 2.5 hours. Unfortunately, the pediatric health care in Las Vegas is among the worst in the country which, after receiving the wrong diagnosis and care plan, forced them to seek help in Salt Lake City where they were fortunate enough to be seen by an amazing doctor and staff at Primary Children's. However, this amazing team of doctors is 7 hours away from home which forces upon them travel expenses, lost wages, and increased medical bills as it is only partially covered by insurance. The future prognosis is uncertain due to increased left side weakness the last few weeks. Amanda and Ray are both very independent and often helping other who are struggling. However, this diagnosis has taken a toll on them financially, just one emergency room visit is $1,000 copay! We would like to do all we can to help.  

 

Despite everything our angel baby has had to go through, she is sweet, loving, smart and perfect. Amanda and Ray continue to have an incredible financial burden in giving Aria all that she needs. We as family and friends are trying to help focus on Aria, not the obstacles a sick baby can bring. All donations will go directly to previous medical bills, medications, copays for Primary Children’s and anything related directly to her healthcare. Thank you for loving her like we do❤
