Raise money for Amelia Mae and Family

Dear family, friends and anyone who may see this and wish to help...For those that don't know me,  my name is Michele and I have a 9 month old granddaughter, Amelia Mae, who had an accident on Monday...she sustained burns to both of her hands.....One of the hands burns are very deep and will require skin graphs and the other one thankfully,  isn't as bad...They heat their house by a propane gas stove, (almost like a woodstove).....and although they had/have it blocked off with baby gates, she was able to get by the gate and touched the stove with her two little hands....little ones are just so quick and inquisitive....

My daughter, Amanda is such a wonderful mom, who does above and beyond her best everyday and is currently blaming herself for the accident, ( I am concerned about her as well , as she too needs to heal from this awful experience, emotionally)....When every parent knows that these accidents happen more often than we think... Both of her parents love her beyond words, as do her grandfather and I....and her Dads family.... Her parents have many financial struggles. My daughter had just received a job promotion and full time status at her job just before the accident happened....She will now be unable to go to work as she will need to be with her daughter around the clock to see that these burns heal as well as they can and to watch for infection....She hasn't been with same company consistently for a long enough period of time, to get FML . 

Amelia will need to do an extensive outpatient program, where they will be in and out of Boston Shriners Hospital....She is now inpatient, in the pediatric unit there but that will change and she will be able to go home soon....They live in NH and will need to travel to and from Boston ,often....With her Mom now out of work to care for her around the clock, the income will be greatly diminished and they really could use any financial help they could get....

I am doing this to try to get them as much help as possible, in hopes that this will ease their worry, some ,so that they can focus on their daughter's healing, without worrying about how they will pay rent and bills....Any help you could give to this family would be so very much appreciated ....If you are unable to help with a donation , just sharing this post would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you for reading this...Our family truly appreciates it more than words could ever express....
