Support for Daphne

I would like to begin by thanking you so much for taking the time to read this. I have started this fund to help my sister, Daphne, a single mother to Jay and Justin, who has suddenly found herself with no income for the next two weeks.

Daphne's youngest child, Justin, suffered a stroke on January 19th and was flown to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis for treatment. The hospital is 3 hours from home, and it is not yet certain when they will be able to return home.

Justin is a bright student in his junior year of high school where he excels at science and math,  and has a keen interest in computer programming and astronomy. Justin is currently working towards maintaining his eligibility for a full college scholarship, and hopes to attend Indiana University in 2019. Sadly, it is not yet known how the stroke will affect his learning abilities, when he will be able to return to school, and if it will have a detrimental inpact on receiving his scholarship.

Daphne works as a phlebotomist and medical assistant for a small clinic, and will need to be on unpaid leave for the next couple weeks to care for Justin. Thanks to excellent medical insurance the medical bills are covered, however with no income Daphne faces the challenge of providing for her family financially during this difficult time.

We are staying optimistic that Justin will have a full recovery, but there are still many challenges ahead. Our family is immensely grateful for any support you are able to provide, whether it be monetary or just by sharing this fundraiser.

Thank you so much for your kindness!
