Help Lily See

Lily was born 2-3-19. When she was only 10 days old she was diagnosed with a rare generic disorder called Peters Anomaly. This caused her eyes not to develop in the first trimester. In order for her to have any chance at some sight she needed cornea transplants in both eyes.
Right eye done May 20, 2019
Left eye done June 3, 2019
Lily also has glacoma in the right eye.
Lily's specialist is almost 600 miles away from her home (Pittsburgh, PA). This has caused us to have to live away from home after transplants for the healing process. Until stitches are ready to come out of her eyes she has to be seen twice a week. 
Stitches are scheduled to be removed July 29, 2019
After stitches are removed we will have to be here another 2 weeks to make sure everything is okay with Lily's eyes.
Once we return home we will need to return to Pittsburgh once every 3 months for check-ups for the rest of her life. We will also do follow-ups with doctor 2 and half hours away from home regularly.
Lily will be on eye drops for life.
Unfortunately cornea transplants always reject in time. She will need these done multiple times in her life. 
Once returning home Lily will be in physical and visual therapy. 
All proceeds help with medication, eye glasses, housing, traveling, and anything else that Lily will need. 
For more information or any questions you are welcome to contact me anytime.
Thank you and good bless you all
