The Love for Ashley Surgery Fund

$10,165 of $9,600 goal

Raised by 193 people in 48 months
This is a story about my dear friend Louner and his precious daughter Ashley,

On October 21, 2009 a perfect little girl was born. With ten little fingers, ten little toes, and her health in hand, Ashley’s parents were proud of God’s gift. But, 4 months later a “pimple” developed on Ashley’s nose. Her parents took Ashley to the hospital and were given the heart breaking news that the “pimple” on her nose was Pseudomonas.

Pseudomonas is a bacteria that can be found soil, water, and plants. Usually, the bacteria do not cause infection in healthy people. However, this organism will cause a disease when a person’s immune system is already impaired. Pseudomonas infections can make one very sick if they spread through the bloodstream. A serious infection can cause symptoms of high fever, chills, confusion, and shock. For patients who are already very ill, they can die from the Pseudomonas infection.

Antibiotics are currently being used to treat the Ashley’s symptoms to stop the spread of infections to other parts of her body, but are becoming too expensive for her family. Her parents are doing the best they can as they are struggling financially to afford Ashley’s care. Moreover, because of Ashley’s condition, surgery is needed to remove the infected tissue and stop the spread of the bacteria to other parts of her face and body.

Please help support Ashely so she her family can afford the surgery she desperately needs and give Ashley a chance to live her life dreams.

Together, through prayers and donations we can help change Ashley’s future. As a giving community “We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.” Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

***ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE PAID DIRECTLY TO THE HOSPITAL THAT IS PROVIDING ASHLEY'S CARE****

Hello friends and family! I have wonderful news!

Check out the press release - they are bringing Ashley here and https://www.facebook.com/freshstartsurgery will be gifting Ashley with her surgeries in Chicago!

The monies that have been raised will be donated to Ashley's Operation Kids fund so the flights and accommodations for Ashley and her mom will be paid for. They expect them to travel here several times for treatment.

Good morning. Please keep Ashley in your prayers. She was admitted to the hospital last night. She has a cold with a fever which was brought on from the pseudomonas infection. She is currently on an IV antibiotic drip. As soon as I know more I will give you an update.

Thanks.

Melissa

Hello all!

Hope you have been enjoying the weather. So glad to have finally be rid of all of the snow we've had this year.

I apologize for the lack of updates since Ashley's surgery. Not much has been going on as she has just been taking it easy and recovering. She will be going for further testing in the weeks ahead to ensure that the infection is indeed gone and that she can move forward with starting facial reconstruction surgery. I will keep you all posted as to when she gets clearance. In the meantime, we have begun contacting plastic surgeons and believe that we may have found one that is a great match for Ashley's needs.

Here are some current photos of Ashley. You can see how nicely her incision is healing. We truly feel blessed that she has recovered so well.

Please continue to pray for Ashley's health and recovery. In the meantime, we will continue to post updates as we get word from each doctor that Ashley sees.
