Supporting an Amazing Child
This month the I Feel the Love Project is happy and honored to shine a light on Mariyah Ava. Here is her story:
Mariyah is 4 years old. She was born with Hypotonia. She has had extensive testing CT Scans, MRI's, LP's, genetics testing, ect. Mariyah has been receiving PT, OT, and early intervention since she was 1. She is disabled but is still a very happy little girl. Kids that are disabled are not sick they just need extra love and care. On April 8th Mariyah woke up with a cold and on April 10th she started to develop a fever. By the next day she could no longer break her fever. On April 12th, 2013 Mariayh was admitted to Lucile Packards Children's Hospital where to this day she currently receives treatment.
Before her hospital stay Mariyah did not require any medical attention. She was a very healthy child. She was disabled, but not sick. Mariyah attended preschool for disabled children Monday thru Friday and she loved it. Please say a prayer to bring Mariyah home! Thank you for taking time to read about Mariyah and her journey. According to her mother Yvette, "Mariyah is the strongest fighter I know! We are going on 2 months of being in the hospital."
Let's show Mariyah and Yvette our support and love by flooding them with cards of support. You can choose to make a card for Mariyah and/or Yvette or both!! Mariyah loves Barney! These cards will help to brighten their days through these difficult times. Please sign your cards and let them know where you are from.
This month we are also asking for blank thank you cards. Mariyah's mom would like to personally send a thank you to everyone who sent in a donation to help cover the costs of Mariyah's medical bills. If you would like to make a donation to help with medical costs, you can find more information about this on Mariyah's page by clicking HERE.
