Dahlia's Surgery/Travel Expenses

If you know me personally then you know my twinkies. My girls have been through a lot in their short lives. I've so close to loosing Daniela and Dahlia more than once. As you can see in the top picture I was able to see my girls developed outside my womb the last 17 weeks of my pregnancy, they are truly miracle babies. Both have endure so much more than anyone can imgained and yet they never give up. Both of my girls are my heroes, they never complain and they've never gave up. They make me so proud it's an honor to be their mommy. I've never asked for any money to take care of their needs, but this time is different. I was forced to quit my job because Dahlia has had a recurring tumor the past 3 years and she's had 2 surgeries to remove the tumor. This time her oncologist has reffered her to another oncologist to tried another type of treatment in the hopes that the tumor doesn't come back again. The past 6 months have been the hardest for her because they've not removed the tumor and she has beein in so much pain. Since they don't have an orthopedic oncologist here in Madera. I've had to take her to Benioff Children's hospital in Oakland. The past 2 surgeries have been performed at UCSF in San Francisco. This time around I don't know where her surgery will be performed, but either way it has been a financial burden in our home. Even if it's just an appointment I still manage to spend around $300 (sometimes even more) every appointment she has or everytime she has to go in for surgery. Please find it in your hard to donate at least $1 you don't know how much that $1 can help me and my family at this point. It's really embarrassing to ask for donations, but we need the money to take her where ever she need to be. As a mom you know that you would take your child to the end of the world just to give your child the oppotunity to live just another day. From the bottom of my heart I truly appreciate everything my friends and family do for my twinkies. If you can donate anything I understand but at least keep both of my girls in prayer, but especially Dahlia. Having just 1 income coming in for the past 6 months has taken a toll financially to our family. I wish I could find a job so I wouldn't have to do this, but it is impossible to find a job that would understand the needs of my girls, but as an employer I need my employees to be ready for work everyday, something that at this point in time I can't give my employer. But before being an employee I am a mother and my kids will forever be my #1 prority. Again thank you in advance for all the donations and especially for all the prayers. I hope you could donate even if it's just a $1, thanks again!!!
