Loving Help for Family in Need

My name is Julie Bryner. I have never done this before, but there is a time and place for everything. My daughter Chelsea Bryner is a loving mother, hard working young woman with a wonderful heart. She has recently gone through a lot of hardships. She has been a single mother for 6 years to my granddaughter Natalie. Recently met the guy of her dreams JC, after a long time of doing things on her own. They were so sure of their relationship that they weren't at all worried when she became pregnant. But then things ensued that made life difficult. Their only vehicle broke down, he got laid off of his job, been through no heat in house, no water, and many things for different reasons. But the most trying time was yet to come.  She went into preterm labor.  Was medivaced from her hometown of Fairbanks Alaska to Anchorage Alaska.  Leaving her daughter, family and friends behind. But the baby was not to be deterred, she came anyway at only 26 weeks! 1lb12oz and only 12.6 inches. She is doing well, we are very grateful. But now that Chelsea is being discharged, the reality sets in. With no home to go to and no money, having had to quit her own job, because they have to stay there until the baby can be released, which could be 6 weeks or more! Medical bills will be arriving and they need a car and a place to live. They are doing what they can, as we all are. I wish I could do more.  I am in charge of making sure her other daughter is taken care of  here at home and try to have a normal as possible life without her mother. Family and friends are rallying to help with that part of it. We are making arrangements to try to get her down to see her mother as well.  Right now I am just hoping for some financial help for my daughter and JC to get on their feet and staying there for however long they have to stay in Anchorage to be with their new daughter until she is strong enough to go home. We are so very grateful for all of our blessings and gifts in this life even though there can be tests and hurdles. I just want to thank anyone and everyone who can help us at this cruicial time... Bless you!
