Selisa's 4-P Support Grp Gathering

Hello all in Facebook land !!. I am reaching out to all of you in hopes that some of you may be able to help me .. I put a dollar amount on this gofund me when I created the account only because it does not let me leave it blank .. Please keep in mind Anything is greatly appreciated!! so please pay no attention to the dollar amount.. As all of you know I have a special needs daughter named Selisa who is 22 and is the Angel in my life !!. Well when Selisa was born in 1996 I was 17 and had no idea what a rollercoaster ride I was about to be put on . When I was pregnant I had no idea what I was going to become a mother of a special little girl and how I had to grow up really fast to deal with what I was about to be faced with . My daughter wasn't diagnosed until she was 6 years old and that was thru the on going genetic testing we had to endure and the perseverance that I knew something out there would come forward because all the testing done at the time came back "normal". I had to reach out and do research online to try to find any answers and finally I found one in San Diego a genetic doctor finally informed my local doctor of a specific test done on the chromosomes under florescent lighting. Then BAM there it was a piece of my daughters 4 th set of chromosomes was missing a very very small piece of the corner .. Now this is something that in our life and families lifes had just happened it was a "de novo" or " sporadic" occurrence .  Strike of lightening so to speak.. At that time is when I became part of a support group known as 4 -P deletion and became introduced with other families and children who had the same chromosome abnormality as my daughter .. There were no other children in Tucson with this . Well every 2 years we get together in a different state and hold these gatherings to be able to come together and have our "unique" yet very much alike Angels we all have in common. And I have been fortunate enough to be able to take her to 3 of them . So this July the gathering will be in San Antonio Texas and that is why I have decided to create this . I have a good job and don't need for much and I take care of my family the best way I can .. I am asking for this help only because for this trip I would like it to be a comfortable one financially without any worries .. This is the one time every couple of years that my Angel can feel and act and be her "own" kind of normal around all those that share the same life, and around other families that can share in my feelings and worries and happiness as I do .. So there is a little into my world ..Thank you again in advance .. from my ❤️ to yours !!! Selisa
