My name is Lindy Ashmore and I have two children that were diagnosed and born with two of the worst congenital diseases when it comes to survival rates. Tristen, shown in the picture above, was born with half his heart and my daughter was born with something called CDH leaving her with part of her lungs missing. They went through extremely invasive surgical repairs including open heart and even received them invitro when I was still pregnant. They are 5 and 12 now and doing well, thank God. But, in the worst of times, it was financially devastating to our family, and so now a dream 10 years in the making is finally emerging. I'm starting a non-profit to help parents going through similar struggles to pay their day to day bills.
I know what it feels like to be a single mom and watch your car get re-possessed in front of your workplace. To come home and have the lights off. To flat out struggle because of not working for extended periods of time while being hours away in a hospital, watching your child fight for every day of their life. No parent should have to worry about day to bills while their life is on hold, scared for their child, scared of the hospital bills, scared of still providing for the rest of their family.
That's where I want to help. I want to come in and pay those bills. Whether it's rent, pg&e, gas cards, car payment, whatever the need is. There is such a lack of funding when it comes to this. I'm asking for your help to help these families. I need to get this project off the ground but need financial help to do so. Thank you for your help, love, support, and prayers!!!
