In Support of Mighty Mara

on behalf of Michelle Toy
As some of you are aware, Danny Toy and his wife, Michelle, have been going through some challenging times with their daughter, Mara's health. 

Mara Toy is seven years old and was born with  cerebral palsy  which has resulted in brain damage.  She started having seizures when she was four years old and will be having brain surgery on July 20th in hopes of stopping the seizures. The surgery will take anywhere from 6-15 hours to complete with 7-10 days of rest and recovery in the hospital afterwards.  

We are asking that you show support for Mara, Danny, Michelle, and the rest of the Toy family in this difficult time. 

We have created this GoFundMe page in order to allow the TOY's support system to virtually aid them. As you can imagine, the funds for not only medical care, but also recovery, tend to accumulate quickly. We have high hopes that we can come together to alleviate some of the financial stress.

Any donation, small or large would be greatly appreciated as well as keeping the family in your thoughts and prayers.

Mara had another surgery on September 19th on her Achilles Tendons on both legs. If was a painful surgery for her but she bounced back like always and is doing well. She is in two cast and its a challenge for her to walk but is getting around in the wheelchair. Her cast will come off on October 30th and she will start PT and OT Therapy again. We are praying that she can get to a flat foot stance so she can start wearing pretty shoes. Thank you for all of your Support and Donations.

Mara has been home since Friday afternoon and is doing well. We are trying to keep her well rested and keep praying that her shunt will not fail. Her surgeon said that there was a lot of protein buildup in the spinal fluid so it may cause the shunt to break. BUT... we live by FAITH and not fear so we are keeping a positive vibe flowing to Mara! We can't thank you enough for all of your donations, support, gifts and love. She is a true Warrior that can feel the love from all of you. She is having a hard time with losing her hair and being called MIGHTY MARA but I truly believe she will be fine once she is back to school and realizes that her friends love her with or without hair.

Today, I posted on the Mighty Mara page but some of may not be on Facebook so I wanted to update you. Mara's surgery has been changed to August 1st. There was some conflicts between the hospital schedules so they needed to change her date. You can now wear your purple and green on August 1st to help us support Mara. You can send us photos so that we can post on her page and show her when she wakes up and starts feeling better.
Thank you for the continued prayers, support and donations.
