Holiday Miracle for a Mother & Daughter

Joanne is a single mother of 21-year-old Brittany. Last Christmas Eve, Brittany went to the ICU, and days later her mom was told she wouldn’t live. Today, she is off all medications and machines, living at home with her amazing mom. Brittany is learning to walk again but is currently in a wheelchair. She is completely blind in one eye and legally blind in the other.

Because of Brittany’s health concerns, Joanne had to stop working to take care of her daughter. The unemployment has ended and they have been unable to make their rent.

Jen and I want to bring a beautiful holiday miracle to this amazing mother and daughter. Our goal is to pay rent for her, and then to create a special holiday celebration for them both, this coming Friday, December 18th.

All contributions are appreciated and will be absolutely cherished.
