Presleigh Wants a Stroller

My daughter Presleigh was born prematurely at almost 4 lbs. in April of 2006, due to the umbilical cord cutting off the air flow to her brain by being wrapped twice around her neck. She spent 5 weeks in the NICU where she showed signs of improvement each day, bottle feeding at her first week! Presleigh was diagnosed prior to leaving the hospital with Periventricular Leukomalasia (PVL) - PVL is a form of white-matter brain injury, characterized by the necrosis (more often coagulation) of white matter near the lateral ventricles, premature infants are at the greatest risk of the disorder. Affected individuals generally exhibit motor control problems or other developmental delays, and they often develop cerebral palsy or epilepsy later in life. Presleigh has developed cerebral palsy. She is now 11 years old, smart as a whip - going into the 6th grade and she is a light to anyone who is blessed by her presence! Presleigh loves spending time with her grandparents (maternal and paternal) as well as her great grandmother, cousins and other family! She enjoys going for walks, going out to eat, shopping trips (even if it is just down the street to the closest Dollar General) but, Target is her favorite! Although Target has one Caroline's Cart, it is not always accessible as there are others that need to utilize the cart as well! Presleigh would absolutely be ecstatic to get a new stroller (her first stroller) to be able to frequent more family outtings, vacations and trips to the nearest dollar store! The simplest thing as a trip across town sets her spirit high - and the weight of her current wheelchair puts a damper on those activities as it weighs in at 80 lbs., does not fold up and isn't easy to get into a vehicle for transportation! If I were to tell Presleigh that I had started this GoFundMe for her to get a stroller, I know a smile would appear on her face from ear to ear and she would keep it for a longggg time - asking me everyday, "how's the GoFundMe going". I promise you, she has the largest heart and she accepts each and every person in their entirity into her life! I devote every second to Presleigh when she is not at school or spending time at her dads and I can assure you that this would be one of the greatest gifts that she could ever receive! The stroller pictured totals $2900.00 not including tax or modification services once we receive it. Please consider helping Presleigh be able to purchase her very first stroller!
