Love for Laynas family

Hi, I'm sure you all know the journey of Sheila and her little miracle Layna:)
I know Sheila would NEVER ask for help as she is better at being the giver! I also know sometimes we all need a little help.  It's been 5 years since their fundraiser that I know was greatly appreciated and helped tremendously.
I happened to know about a struggle that the state put her in and she is now silently stressing finacially! They also lost income from 2 sources this month. She is spending her "spare time" looking for a job that may work in her lifestyle of having a chronically ill child. I know she will do what she can to get caught up for her family but I felt a pull to help out.
She would never want to put the burden on someone else. So doing the go fund me I thought would be a great way for anyone who could and wanted to help in any way. We all know that even $5 goes a long way!  Please do not feel obligated and you can keep your name hidden or posted whatever your comfortable with! 
Given her current situation,  insurance issues, hospital trips/stays this past month and the next 2 months to come I just wanted to do a little something to lighten the weight:)
Thank you everyone for taking the time to read this and I cant wait to  lift the weighted blanket :)
p.s I put a number in the goal only because I had to put something. There is no limit and there is never too many funds with your raising a family in this circumstance :)Thank you for reading and I know your love and support has lifted them in time of need!
Help me help this awesome family:)
