As many of you know Chance has recently been admitted to the ICU at Rady’s Children’s.

Amanda is a single mom and Chance is the love of her life. Due to a freak medical situation he is currently hospitalized with no prognosis and has lost his vision in his right eye. For now what we know is he has the flu, pneumonia and a blood clot. Amanda is at the bedside to be there for her son however, medical bills, meals at the hospital even the cost of parking is taking time away from her being with her son. We’re asking for all of the support that you could potentially give for Amanda and Chance so Amanda can be with her son during this terrible time and provide the greatest support without the worry of money. 

Thank you and and every little bit helps!

During this difficult time Chance’s Aunt Katherine Lemon is caring for Amanda’s daughter full time. She brings Maddie to visit Mom daily and will also be helping manage this page with updates. Along with helping manage our gofundme page Katherine will also be in charge of managing the money and withdrawals and making sure Chance and Amanda have everything they need.

So, it’s been a little while since I’ve had time to sit and post. Chance is home now and recovering. We see the doctors a few times a week and he is adjusting to a new schedule and all sorts of new rules .
He is such a strong and amazing kid, I am a very lucky mom. He is to remain on blood thinners and antibiotics for the next 5 months and they are monitoring the clot closely. It’s amazing the things you learn. His situation is so rare that the doctors still have no answers as to why or if this will ever happen again. As we struggle to understand and adjust to a new life we are so grateful for all of the love and support. I honestly don’t know how strong I could’ve been without so many of you. I wanted to just express my gratitude again.
Positive thoughts and prayers for everyone out there facing anything.

Happy Tuesday everyone. It’s been a minute since I have had time to update. Chance has successfully returned home & we are busy with follow up appointments & trying to make bed rest exciting. He is on the mend slowly and still even after being released we have no answers as to why. He is on long term antibiotics and blood thinners. Poor little guy is still very weak but in very good spirits! He will be out of school the remainder of the year and we will continue to try to find the answers so he can return to a normal life an 8 year old should be allowed to live
I just want to continue to thank all of you for the positive thoughts and prayers

After a week in the ICU it looks as though we may be cleared to move to a regular room! Chance is making improvements every day and continues to be strong and brave and just an amazing soul that I thank God every day for. I continue to be so very grateful for all the thoughts, prayers and support. We still have a long road ahead and this poor little guy has at least 10 days left in the hospital according to his doctors. However today he got to get up and sit in the window and it made him so happy. I know this is short but just wanted to update & express my gratitude

I want to start by thanking everyone for their positive thoughts, prayers and support. This is the scariest thing I have ever faced in life, my little man being this sick. As I sit next to him today I wanted to update everyone on how he is doing. We are still currently in the ICU fighting the pneumonia,flu and monitoring his blood clot. He is awake more and starting to communicate better. He even took a short walk yesterday! The amazing team of doctors at Radys is still trying to figure out what caused this and how exactly we make him better. While doing so they are fantastic with our little man and good at easing our minds as well. So very thankful for them as well as all of you. I don’t have too much time but wanted to thank you all personally and let you know our little man is strong and in good spirits with his dad and I by his side every day.
All my love and gratitude.
Positive thoughts & prayers.
Amanda
