As many of you may or may not know my little sister Faith has been struggling since in the womb. We found out very early that we'd struggle with her, but my mom put faith in God and he has delivered, and is continuing to deliver. Doctors told her to abort, when she was born they said she wouldn't make it past the first day and now here we are. She has many problems and yet still managed to make it to 5 months old, going on 6 months on December 17th. My sister has one lung, an extremely narrow trachea, has had multiple open heart surgeries. Her heart is actually on the right side of her body as opposed to the left.
As of recently, things have worsened. She can barely breathe, she's swollen, they have to keep her paralyzed so that she doesn't move any of the equipment around her neck and nose. It's so bad and brochoscopies, tracheotomies and all of the doctors in Las Vegas have been unsuccessful with treating her. Every week she is having surgeries to keep her airways open and when she's not in surgery, we have her on an ocillator. Which keeps her breathing, however due to only having one lung, that lung could explode if on an extended time of the ocillator. Right now we are at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas and are looking to relocate her to Cincinnatti.
We're now trying to get Faith transported to Cinncinati to have ongoing treatments, procedures, surgeries and better doctors for her however opur insurance just will not cover it all. We need to do so within the next few weeks or it could honestly be fatal..... Even with financial aid, insurance and help of family, we still cannot pull together enough to get her out there and continuously KEEP her out there. We really need the money and if you guys could help with anything, even a penny, that would be so amazing. We also would love if you could send positive vibes, prayers, thoughts, anything. We truly truly appreciate every single donation, prayer, thought and etc.
We have a page we've been trying to keep updated since her birth if you'd like to look into this.
UPDATE: FAITH HAS BECOME SO SEVERE THAT WE ARE TRYING TO HAVE HER TRANSPORTED TO UCLA.
