Many of you may know Analyah's story but not the full story...Analyah was born early at 36 weeks with a severe condition called Hydrocephalus which is extra fluid in the brain, that caused her brain not to fully develop normally. Having hydrocephalus she had to undergo 4 surgeries to place a device in her brain to allow the fluid to drain itself. One side affect of having the device put in is having seizures and she so happened to get that side affect and takes medicine everyday for it. She also was born with a chromosome 8 duplication which causes changes in her physical features such as her cleft palate, pushed back chin, and very low muscle tone. Her cleft palate does not allow her to fully eat by mouth she eats with a feeding tube, and her low muscle tone doesnt allow her to stand.sit, or hold her head up. With proper exercise and physical therapy she may one day hopefully be able to walk and do other normal things kids do. Analyah is going to be 2 years old soon and is very more active now due to costant physical and occupational therapy from early intervention. The whole purpose of this fund is to provide Analyah with a service dog that can accompany her and provide help for her daily needs and to also motivate her more to continue to stay active. NEADS organization lets people adopt specially trained dogs for disabled children but since they are specially trained they have a costly price.
My goal as her mom is to provide as many services for her that I know will help motivate her to move around more and become stronger, having a playful dog that can play with her and be able to assist her and help her get active can be a huge help to her. I am hoping all of you can help towards this fund anything counts. Thank you!
