Brain Surgery for Baby Lyla

Hello everyone! We are hoping to raise money for Baby Lyla to have brain surgery. Her and her twin brother Lyncoln were born 10/11/19. Early on, they started to notice some differences with Lyla, she wasn't gaining weight, choking while trying to drink, etc. She was diagnosised with RSV and went to the hospital many times due to her stopping breathing and turning purple. The doctors dianosised Lyla as failure to thrive and placed a feeding tube down her nose to her stomach so she could get the nutrients she needed.  She didn't like that and would pull her tube out all the time. She later went into surgery and now has a G-tube. 
Her family started to notice her leg muscles getting weaker. They sought out help and after many more doctors appointments, was diagnosised with Cerebral Palsy which came as a huge shock. Even with everything going on this girl has the biggest smile on her face. 
Lyla started to have seizures and went in for an EEG. Krystal (Lyla's AMAZING Mom) just recveived news that she has a Type 2 Chiari Malformation (her brain is growing into her spinal cord) and is in need of surgery. This surgery is very costly. Krystal and her husband have 2 other kids (3 y/o and 2 y/o) in addition to the twins.

Krystal herself was diagnosis with Leukemia at a young age and is currently in remission. This beautiful family has been through a lot already. Please help in anyway you can, whether it's financially or sharing this to get the message out. Thank you.
