Pam and Dominic's little expenses

My name is Nick Perkins.  I am starting this campaign on behalf of my sister Pam, and her son, Dominic.   This is not to fund Dominc's medical bills but rather the little things that Pam has to worry about while she is giving all of herself to Dominic.  Little things like cellphone bills, babysitter cash, food for her kids, etc...  While she is in the hospital.  

Dominic, 9 months old, born with Downs Syndrome, has been in the hospital probably longer than he has not. Even outside the hospital she is toting around a 20lb breathing maching, air tubes, oxygen monitor and 5 other kids.   Dominic is now in the hospital fighting the RSV virus.  Although I cant fully update you on everything that is going on, there have been far more downs than ups in his daily updates.  (Please follow Pam for all the updates) 

A side story to bring this one full circle...
My mother, others in my family, and myself have been helping with a family in Africa.  While they knew we would send them money if they needed it, they waited until the point they were starving (not America starving) until they asked.  

I have talked to my sister Pam about this Gofund me page and against her wishes I went ahead and started this fund.  Like that family in Africa, sometimes the hardest thing to do is to ask for charity.  Pam, forgive me for not listing to you and going through with this.   We would like to know that we are taking some of the burden off your plate even if its a few bucks in your pocket.

All Pam has ever asked for and all she is asking for now, are prayers.
