Help with Christmas

Hi all! 

My name is Courtney and I am the aunt to these sweet little kids. 

Like many, their family is hurting because of coronavirus. My oldest niece Addison is 12 , she is terminally ill and requires medical equipment to keep her alive and well. We have already missed her12th birthday because of coronavirus so we wanted to make Christmas extra special.

My other niece is 10, my nephew is 6, and they have baby Loic due in January. 

Unfortunately a couple weeks ago, Addison’s nurse had coronavirus and didn’t know, which lead to the family having to quarantine for 2 weeks. My brother applied for unemployment, but like many, he hasn’t received it yet. Bills are due and Christmas is coming. 

As a family, we are doing as much as we can, but we can only do so much. Anything helps and is appreciated beyond words. This may be our last Christmas with Addison so we truly want to make it special. 

I know my brother and sister-in-law would never ask me to do this for them, so I ask that it is kept a secret so we can surprise them. 

All donations will be used to help them pay their bills and help with Christmas.
