medical and travel expense

This is my daughter Kaydence Gibson. She is 9 years old, and was diagnosed with serve spastic quadrapelgic cerebal palsy when she was 7 months old. It was caused by lack of oxygen before and during her birth. Kaydence cannot sit, stand, or talk.... but she has a smile that would melt your heart. Kaydence has had 7 surgeries to date and unfortunatly she will continue to under go many more. In January 2015 she will be undergoing her biggest surgery yet, on her back. This operation will try to correct her scoliosis which has her back with 87.4 degree curve in it. Right now Kaydence's curve in her back is putting pressure on her lungs and other internal organs, this surgery will help to relieve that pressure and stress. This is a VERY high risk operation for Kaydence but as high risk as it is, not having it is and even bigger risk....this could potentially take my daughter's life if it is not corrected. My family and I are asking friends, family, community and peers to help with the cost of this trip to Montreal Quebec from Northern Ontario, Manitoulin Island. Our stay in Montreal could last as long as 4 weeks, depending on Kaydence's recovery. We can't afford to pay for all of it by ourselves. Cost involved to airfare, ground transportation, hotels, meals and medical not covered by insurance or Shriners. Thank you in advance for all the love, help and con tinued support for our family.  Our family appreciates it from the bottom of our hearts.
