A Child Needs Your Help

My daughter has major mental health issues since she was 5 years old, she has been and out of all these different treatment places over many years and this is her first Christmas home.  I have cll (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) which makes it hard for me to go out and even try to work, especially now with Covid-19 there is no way I can.                                        My daughter is physical 17 years old but mentally 9 years old.  2020 hasn’t started off on a good foot for all of us but with my daughter since the beginning of 2020 she has had two surgeries, she moved home in April 2020 after 5 years of state mental hospitals, we found out that her health is deteriorating every day. She needs a few different surgeries, they want to put a tube in her brain that would drain into her stomach, they want to do a weight loss surgery.  Her body is over producing insulin and her AC1 is right now is on the border line.  She has stomach issues that she is in and out of the hospital daily/weekly, she has three different types of debilitating headache’s, we have a hospital bed in her bedroom to keep her in an upright position which insurance is only covering until December 2020.   She has a lot of other medical issues that she has to wear special underwear that cost me over $200.00 a month.  She has a lot of medication that is not covered by insurance that is draining me sometimes.  There is 44 days left to Christmas and I want to try to raise money to be able to give her, a real Christmas that could be her last Christmas. Any little bit would help.  Cash through the go fund me, gift cards that can be mailed to me or gifts that can be ordered and sent to my house.  Any little bit would make my little girl happy.  I know people are asking well where is her father, he has been in prison most of her live and is a dead-beat dad.  You can call me at 617-866-2495 if you have any questions.  

Other ways  A friend had said I should use Amazon wish list for her.  Wish list link is  

 I really need everyone's help to make this Christmas the best for her.  Yes there is baby things in there but those are because she is mentally 9 years and thinks of her two dolls as her babies.  Thank you for anyone that can help.  Once again there is the GoFundMe or the Amazon wish list

Thank You
