Kaitlynn and Gianna need our help. Giving Tuesday is coming, but here’s your chance to get a jump on donating. We are coming to the close of the 2017 season and our fundraising efforts for the CARS Kids. This is a great opportunity for you to be a part of making a difference in the lives of 2 families this holiday season. Both families have struggled this year with the expenses of the girls’ medical care. Between doctors’ appointments and the expense of traveling to them, the time taken off work and the loss of income has really been felt by both families.
You have a chance to help lighten that burden with your donations.
Little Gianna is 4 years old and was in a car accident in January where she received severe trauma to the brain and had a halo placed on due to injuries to her neck. We are happy to say that she’s had the halo removed and will not have to have neck surgery. With therapy she should have full range of movement one day. She is in pre-K and loving it. She got a chance to go to Disney
and see Frozen
to celebrate having the halo removed.
Kaitlynn, a 16 year old beautiful young lady from Auburndale who was diagnosed with all three forms of scoliosis, Scheuermann’s disease
and was also recently diagnosed with a treatable blood cancer
. Last December she had surgery to correct her spinal problems. They placed a rod down her spine from the base of her neck to her tailbone. When she came off the operating table she stood three inches taller. She is in physical therapy and dealing with nerve damage from scoliosis. Kaitlynn has had a rough year struggling with complications from the hardware placed in her spine. Her mother feels very confident in her new doctor and she’ll be scheduled to have the hardware removed and replaced soon. She has remained in school and in fact will be graduating this spring with numerous college credits.
So as you can see, any help you can offer to these two precious children will help make a difference.
Our foundation is trying to bring a few extra smiles to these families. If you can help us do that, we would greatly appreciate any and everything you can do. Thank you for taking the time to consider helping our kids and families.
