Help Jayda live life to the fullest

Jayda, our dear sister and daughter was tragically injured while attending p.e in school. Jayda and another child had collided and Jayda flew back and was knocked unconscious.  20 minutes of Grand Mal Seizuring, Jayda was moved while unconscious to the nurses room. The school had waited 20 minutes before calling an ambulance, Jayda was finally rushed to the emergency room at Children's Hospital. My mother was notified and rode in the ambulance to the hospital. Not one person had notified my mom on what happened neither did they tell paramedics, she was in a coma and put on life support for a day, then moved to the Intensive Care Unit. Three days later Jayda finally came to. This was especially traumitizing as I lost my father at age 4 to being in a coma, but he didn't wake up.  3 months Jayda fought to be able to walk again and she managed to do so relearning things everyday. It turned up further down the road that she had triggered a brain disease with the trauma known as 'Vanishing White Matter Disease' there are about 200 documented cases worldwide, but no cure and life expectancy is 2-10 years for someone with, but we won't stop fighting. The troubles didn't end there my mothers a single mom of 4 kids and we've struggled while healthy never mind with what's come to light, everyday is a struggle since Modo terminated our membership over a late return while Jayda was in a coma, leaving us bussing her to her appointments and school and after school activities. The cost of her splint, physio, bus pass is all surmounting to too much for my mom on her own who's received little to no answers on help for a bus pass for Jayda for her disability or anything. We are raising money in hopes to give Jayda the safety and freedom she once had, as any slight bump to the head could mean paralyzation or even blindness, never mind the fact even getting sick is a gamble as she may not beat certain things. I'm asking for anyone if you can find it in your heart to help this little girl get back to a smooth normal life again, you'd just see her blossom and flourish as we always have. Thank you for reading about this tragedy that's taken such a toll mentally, financially even physically as Jayda can't walk long distances meaning my mom has to pull her in a wagon time to time because her Botox shots ran out and exceed 800$ a shot and last 2 months.
