Here is where you can help. They are worried as their baby girl fights for her life, while still having to face reality of life. Her parents are making a choice to miss work, with no pay. Right now, they are where every parent should be, right by Zakeyahs side. If she comes out of the sedation and wakes up, it will be to everyones benefit if Mom and Dad are there support and comfort her. They both have employment where the pay is minimal and they recieve no benefits AT ALL. No sick time, no vacation time, no family medical leave pay etc.... The concern is how they can be there for Zakeyah as well as pay the rent, lights, heat, food etc. to keep the house going for the other children. They will also start to accrue costs for travel as they take turns to go home and raise the rest of their family. If there is any way you can spare even just a little, it will be appreciated and go a long way, both monitarily and mentally as some of the stress is relieved financially.

Thank you in advance for ANY assistance you can provide as the family is very private, but the story needed to be told.
