Izzi's Heart Shield

Okay guys and gals. This little girl has been having some issues as of late and I think we all should chip in and help her single mother take care of what is ailing her. This little girl warrior is just 7 years old and has a hole in her heart. No, not the type of hole you had when your girlfriend went without you to get Fro-Yo, an actual hole in her heart. She has Atrial Septal Defect and it has left her with a 20mm hole in her little heart. She also has a right bundle branch block and an enlarged heart all caused by this large hole. Break out a ruler and see just how large that is in a child's heart. She is a sweet, little mama's girl that needs a lot of help right now. She has been to Erlanger Childrens Hospital here in Chattanooga, TN and also to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, TN. As you can all assume, this isn't cheap and insurance isn't as great as it should be with deductibles so high right now. As you can also assume, meeting these deductibles with cold hard cash is rough when you are a single parent with little help from anyone. This is where we all come into play. I have seen many silly gofundme campaigns on this site but this one actually holds a lot of weight. I don't think many, if any, of us can relate to what this little family is going through, but we have all had a little hole in our hearts. Those holes were filled with time, I get it. This little southern belle's hole will only be sealed by a surgical plate and time is of the essense. So, I implore all of my friends and family and people I don't even know to donate what you can for her. Be it 5, 10, 20, 50 bucks, she deserves to live a full and a happy life and her mother deserves to see her go to prom, go to college, meet her terrible boyfriends and eventually her knight in shining armor. Please help me in getting this precious little girl exactly what she needs. I thank you all in advance and I know that her mother is going to be more thankful than you could ever imagine..immediately after kicking me for doing this.
