Financial emergencyHello there!
So, unfortunately, things have not been well with my family as of late. Last week, my ten year old niece was taken to the hospital.
She awoke to an excruciating pain in the back of her thigh and lower back, and she couldn’t move her left leg. She couldn’t walk because of it, and at first we suspected it to be a pulled muscle. however, it didn’t clear up, and a trip to the hospital ended with her being transferred to the Children’s Hospital approximately four hours upstate.
The new wasn’t good. A massive staph infection in her pelvic bone and the surrounding muscle, as well as a bacterial infection in her blood. She’s still in the hospital and is suspected to stay there for the next two to four weeks, and will unfortunately have to have a PICC line for up to three months to continue treatment.
It’s been rough! Her mother is a single parent that is between jobs, having been just two days away from starting a new job when this transpi

If you can neither commission me nor donate, it would bless me and my uncle if you shared this journal.

That would be $80 I'd have to have in my PayPal account every month. I can talk to a member of the MAPS organization through the place where I get therapy in the next few days...they may be able to find a way to help but since it's pain medication, they're not sure.
