Selah House for Jordan Prince

My name is John Prince and I am the father of Jordan Prince.  Jordan is 26 years old and has been in the grip of anorexia and bulimia for the last 10 years.  During the last 12 months, Jordan has been hospitalized 4 times.  Last summer, she was in the ICU for almost 8 weeks and she is currently in OSF.

My daughter is almost dead and the beautiful daughter that I once had is gone.  I spent the last 2 years full of anger.  Anger at my daughter for what I viewed as the terrible choices she continued to make each day and anger that I could not find a way to control the circumstances.   The Lord has brought me to a place of peace and I just want to take care of my little girl.

My wife and I reached out to Selah House in Indiana and they have agreed to help.  OSF sent Jordan's file to them yesterday and they called my wife today.  They stated that our daughter is in a severe state and will die without immediate treatment. 

My daughter is unable to keep a job and currently has Illinois Public Aid as her health insurance.  There is not a single treatment facility that accepts IPA.  Selah House has agreed to cut the daily rate to $850.00.  At first, I thought this sounded like an unusually high amount, but after talking to other facilities, we found out that this was a highly discounted rate.  (Denver Acute is $5500.00 per day)

Per Selah House's advice, we are currently trying to have the hospital keep Jordan until a bed opens up at Selah House the last week of March.  Selah stated that Jordan would need to be there 12 weeks.  

As I type this, there is a little box out to the side giving me suggestions on what to write.  It says to "Tell how these funds will help you or your love one".

It will help me by keeping my daughter alive and helping her to have a quality of life that I have not been able to give her.  I want to help her to the depths of my soul, but my business went under at the end of 2017 and I am at the end of myself.  It would help my daughter to continue to live and become the person I know she can be.

Not knowing what else to do or who to turn to, I am doing this GoFundMe page.  I need to raise $71,400.00 before a bed becomes available at the end of this month.  I will be forever thankful for any help you might be able to offer.
