Audrey Rose Critical Life Needs

Hello.

Thank you for meeting and supporting our precious daughter Audrey Rose. Born blind (no eyeballs) and with severe heart disease (several conditions) we are respectfully asking that you give what we cannot, please?

Audrey was a miracle baby as we were told at her first ultrasound that she would be born dead. However, the only doctor in the world that could save her life happened to be 30 miles away, and he did.

Audrey misses out on 90+ percent of life and needs help obtaining support materials and experiences that will help make her a positive and constructive member of our society. We are looking for educational and vocational materials to prepare Audrey for the work force and for safely and successfully navigating life.

We are raising money for Audrey to try and give her a fighting chance in life.

Replacing Audrey Rose’s sight is impossible without eyeballs, but she can at least experience an enhancement of life’s joys and education with your help please.

Audrey will benefit from any or all of the following items.

This is a partial list of her needs:
Walking cane
Braille machine
3 D Printer
Braille-Note Machine
Braille display
Embosser machine
Victor Reader (reads digital text)
Grocery / store label Reader
Liquid-level indicator
Measuring spoons w Braille
Money Identifier
Oven rack guards and mitts
Guide dog
Treadmill
Stationary Bike
Mobile bike adaptive attachment
Blind adapted Iphone
Books on tape
Braille Books
Swimming pool access
Musical Instruments
Martial Arts classes
Singing Lessons
Musical Instrument lessons
Athletic / safety equipment
Blind-assisted Computer
Transportation – entrance into educational venues such as:
Children’s Discovery Museum
Exploratorium
Appropriate plays

 All these items and any other assistance take on critical significance to Audrey Rose because of her blindness. Affirmation is a critical need in every human being and Audrey receives almost nothing compared to sighted children whether having medical conditions or not.

 Missing out on 90+% of life makes any support in any of these areas critical for her understanding of the world and to support her personal and professional growth in the world.

 Thank you for taking your time to read about our challenged Angel. She has almost died several times and suffered 3 open-heart surgeries, emergency surgeries to save her life and many dozen supporting medical procedures and has many more to suffer through. Audrey is hurt everyday as she smacks into furniture, cars, poles, doors, boxes, table edges, and crushes her toes into items often every day.

 Any help or support will provide a monumental improvement on Audrey’s quality of life; make her more independent and less of a constant burden to others.

Audrey will be thankful that someone cares. She never sees a friendly smile or wave. She has never seen her parent’s smiles. But knowing you care will warm her heart and give her the affirmation and motivation to succeed against her almost overwhelming odds while strengthening her self worth and self esteem through the toughest of times.

Audrey and I thank you now for helping a truly deserving little Angel who, with your help, will grow to become a successful productive adult you all will be proud to know.

Would you like to meet our Angel Audrey Rose in a short video?

 She was asked by her heart camp to simply meet a football player, and this is what Audrey came up with:
