Love For Livi and Family

Last week was the first week of school. What should have been a normal, happy Friday with classmates ended with near tragedy.

Alivia Villalobos is in 6th Grade at St. Anthony Catholic Shool.  Friday she was taken by ambulance to the hospital where she was then life flighted to IA City Children's hospital. Alivia has a condition known as AVM which is a case of tangled blood vessels in her brain. One of those vessels ruptured while she was at school. She has undergone two surgeries thus far and is fighting hard to recover.

Livi's mom is a single mother of 4 children, all school age. She has the fortune of supportive parents that are very helpful. Unfortunately Alivia's grandmother has been living with cancer. Also, as if it wasn't bad enough, Alivia has Lupus which only complicates things. It's been a tough year to say the least.

Needless to say, this current episode with her illness is way too much of a strain on one family. Livi's mom has already had to quit her night job to be with her daughter now. Please find it in your heart to make a donation to help with what will be overwhelming medical bills to come. Any amount helps and is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you in advance from everyone here at Team Livi!
