For the Love of Lilly

Please join Lilly and her family through her upcoming brain surgery, recovery, and other extenuating financial needs.  Lilly is a sweet, kind, and loving 11-year-old girl, and was diagnosed with Isodicentric Dup15q Syndrome when she was a baby. This syndrome has presented Lilly with several life-threatening challenges.

Lilly’s main support system is her big brother, Andrew, and their mother, Samantha. Andrew’s love for his little sister is indescribable. It is shown through his patience and his desire to learn more about how his sister lives and sees the world differently than the rest of us. Samantha, is a single mother, and has ALWAYS put her children’s health and happiness as her first priority.

Up until now, Samantha has been able to balance her work life in a manner that still allows her to give the proper attention Lilly needs for her unique lifestyle. But over the last few months, Lilly’s increasing medical attention and extensive hospital stays has forced Samantha to miss a substantial amount of work. She is unable to meet the financial demands that allow Lilly to live a healthy life. Lilly is scheduled for a life-changing brain surgery on May 8th that will hopefully limit her seizures and improve her overall quality of life.   

We please ask you to watch the attached video to gain a better understanding of Lilly’s story. Your support, generosity, and kindness are so greatly appreciated. Please share and spread the world!
