Hello everyone! My name is Rene Ruiz, I am the father to my beautiful daughter Rochelle! Rochelle is a special child who has defied all odds and continues to be a fighter! She was born with an extremely rare 6th Chromosome Deletion 11q-16q. From birth she has dealt with complications: breathing, feeding, seeing, and hearing. She is legally blind and deaf through the State of Texas. It’s been a long journey for her and our family. I lived in the hospital with her from birth to 4 months, through countless surgeries and treatments. We are still in and out of the hospital/specialty clinics getting treatments and surgeries that Rochelle still needs to live as normal of a life as she can.
This fundraiser will help us catch up on all of her medical bills from being seen outpatient to being in the hospital for 4 months as well as current medical supplies she requires for her normal daily life. Even making a small dent we can afford her a specialized chair, a specialized stander and as well as possibly finally getting Rochelle a Baja hearing softband for her hearing since currently we are using rental hearing aids. I am a disabled veteran and our insurance can only cover so much for our precious little girl. This amount is only about 1/10th of our debt as bills keep adding on and things are moving towards collections.
I just want to be able to provide what I can to our beautiful daughter to give her the life she deserves with how hard she’s fought since birth defying all odds and setting new goals. All donations are appreciated and will be put to good use. Thank you for taking interest in our little girl and God Bless you all!
