Cheyannes Recovery Fund

On July 1st 2017 One of my best friends Tammy Mills took her daughter Cheyanne to a 4th of July party. With a afternoon of fun and celebration that Included Cheyanne riding in a ATM type recreation vehicle called a Gator with an Adult driver and one of Cheyannes friends. That's when an afternoon of fun turned to Tradgedy. The gator rolled throwing Cheyanne from the vehical. When they got to Cheyanne she was uncouncious. Cheyanne injurys were soo extensive she was life flighted from the scene to Rainbow babies and Children's Hopsital in Cleveland. Where they did a c.t. scan on Cheyanne head they discovered a head injury. They immediately rushed her into emergency surgery where they soon realized Cheyannes injurys were much worse then they had initially suspected. After 5 grueling hours of surgery Tammy got word they had to removed the damaged part of Cheyannes brain. The part of her brain that controls vision walking and talking. They won't know the extent of what damage was done from them removing that part of her brain until she is well enough to be woken up as she's in a medically induced coma. She'll need another surgery to put a metal plate in her head but they are unable to do the surgery at the time as the swelling around her brain needs to go down. Along with the injury to the brain Cheyanne suffered a concussion a broken shoulder and many cuts and bruises all over her body. Once Cheyanne awakens from this horrific event she'll need to go to rehab and physical therepy to work on anything that was effected from removing the portion of her brain.

Tammy Cheyannes mother is a single mother with 2 little girls Cheyanne being the oldest and the youngest is Stephanie. Tammys a single mom who barely gets by on just her salary alone to pay their bills and support the girls needs. Tam is a school bus driver for the Painesville Township School districts and as it's summer so she's not working at the moment. Where Tammy and the girls live is 45min to 1hour away from the hospital Cheyanne is in. Tammy doesn't plan to leave Cheyannes side for one moment unless she absolutely needs to. That being said she will need to eat everyday. Her vehicle will be in a parking Garage that costs money daily to be in. If she does need to leave the hospital she's going to need to get back and forth. And then once Cheyanne is released from the hospital and begins her rehabilitation and physical therapy Tammy will need gas money to get back and forth to all these appointments.

So ANYTHING to help Cheyanne in her recovery or help assist Tammy in Cheyanne recovery be it medical bills gas transportation you name it they are going to need it. So like I said ANYTHING anyone can donate to this family would be sooo appreciated. This is any parents worst nightmare and NO CHILD should ever have to indure the things that Cheyanne has and will go threw from this point forward. I will try to keep everyone updated on Cheyannes progress as I get word on her prognosis.

Thank you all soo much
