The Story


Dec 10 started like any other day, but tragically didn't end like any other day. We got a call that no parent ever even imagines receiving. Our 17 year old daughter had been shot in the leg attempting to run for safety when 4 assailants came to commit a premeditated home invasion. She has been in the hospital trauma unit ever since. Immediately, the cardiovascular doctor wanted to amputate but thankfully her trauma doctor had other plans. We're trying everything possible to save her leg and they are estimating our bills to top $1.5 million. As it stands, crime victims will only pay so much and our own insurance comes with very high deductibles. We have already tried to apply for the state medical plan, but make too much money as we both work full time. Yes, we work full time under normal circumstances; however, due to this nightmare we have not been working due to being by her side as any parents should be. Not only have we been maxed out emotionally, now the financial toll is adding to the stress. We never thought we would ever have to experience anything like this, nor have to ask for help from complete strangers. If you are able to help us in any way, please know that we are people that believe in paying it forward and will do so as soon as we're back on our feet. Prior to this tragedy, we had planned on and picked out a family to adopt for Christmas, and now we're unable to even have Christmas gifts for our 6 children. However, we still have our daughter alive and we will all be surrounding her in the hospital as a family on Christmas celebrating the greatest gift of all♾and that is life.
