My Miracle Angel

I am the daughter of the late Harrell Carmichael and Min. Louise Carmichael, who lives on Howell Cove road in Talladega, Al. My name is Phillis Carmichael; I reside in Talladega , Al, where I have two beautiful girls , Fanasia 11yr. old and HaLeayah 5 yr. old. On November 18, 2011, I gave birth to a miracle child, HaLeayah L. Swain. Why I say miracle is because she was born early at 29 wks with a birth weight of 1.06kg. She has been fighting for her life at the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Al. In and out of the hospital yearly sometimes months. She had been in PICU for 3 1/2yrs and has suffered many milestones such as: Hydrocephalus with a shunt replacement, periventricular leukomalacis, spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, Aspiration, significant largyngomalacia and upper airway obstruction, a Seizure disorder, and Bronochopulmonary Dysplasia, feeding tube and takes multiple medications 3x a day. My daughter also has a tracheotomy which is required more oxygen then normal. This last time we were in hospital for 2wks in November 2017 she suffered having
apnea episodes were she would stop breathing and drop her sats to 54 or lower and it put a strain on her brain to not telling her to breath. Later on they notice she had a trachea that wasn’t right size. For 6yrs my daughter struggled to breath on her on until they replaced a new 1 in. Now she is home with me and the cost of oxygen tanks are getting expensive but the insurance I have only pays for 4 tanks a month. So I researched and wanted to purchase a portable oxygen concentrator, that she can use everyday even on the go instead of the tanks. Me being the mother I am had to give my daughter CPR 3x in 2days.
but with God and prayers she has been recovering even though she can’t talk, eat or walk she has a big heart and making effort to be with her family daily. The love and joy for her big sister makes her day. The love they have is unconditional and that’s joyful. My child has had 5 brain surgeries and several others. She has a strong heart and knows that God will pull her through. Prayers from all over as showed so much love to my child. I am asking if you could give a small donation for her to purchase a portable Oxygen Concentrator . If you can find it in your heart to donate whatever God places on your heart to give that would make me and HaLeayah day. God bless.
