Daughter attacked by dog, please help!

Hello, my name is Arianna. My daughter Kayla (age 3) was attacked by a family members pit bull on June 7th, 2021. She was attacked and bit in the face and it caused multiple deep wounds/lacerations. She was being babysat at the time, and once we got the call we rushed to her aid. I and her father rushed to take her to the emergency room where she was treated. She had plastic surgery to repair the wounds on June 8th at 8am. She received 30+ stitches. The doctors told us she will need future surgeries to repair the damage. Her insurance doesn’t cover future surgeries. I love this little girl so much and hate that she has to go through this. Any donations to go towards her surgeries would be extremely appreciated. She’s a tough little girl but she’s struggling right now. We really need the help. I’m a part time student but I’m considering putting school on pause so I can work just to afford the care she needs. This is so scary for us. We never thought anything like this could happen. Kayla grew up with this dog, they played together all of the time. This was so unexpected and scary. Please keep our baby girl in your thoughts. We’ve got a long road of recovery ahead. I am setting the amount at 10k but it could cost more, we are unsure about the amount needed at this time. I am just hoping what we have will be enough. 

Edit: I’ve been getting a lot of messages and hate from others for mentioning the breed of the dog in my post. I understand pit bulls get a bad rep, and we loved this dog, we don’t wish any harm to come to her even though this has happened. It was tragic, the dog had never attacked her before so no one saw this coming.  I apologize to anyone who was offended.
