Help Make a Difference in Sierra’s Life
As you may know, Sierra Smith was born with CDG-1K (Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation). As a result, Sierra suffers from epilepsy, is unable to talk or walk, and requires 24/7 care. Now that she is 11-years-old, it has become more difficult to travel in the family car. On occasion, Sierra has missed out on some of the trips do to the physical strain of loading/unloading Sierra and her wheelchair (the wheelchair alone weighs about 80 pounds). Right now, even going to the store or a doctors’ appointment is a huge undertaking. Sierra and her family are looking to purchase a modified van with a lift so Sierra can more easily travel.

As a lot of you know, we are looking at a handicapped van for my daughter on Monday or Tuesday next week. Please pray that everything works out and Sierra gets her van. This will definitely come in handy when we take are trips to see the animals at the zoo and for all of her doctors’ visits. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and love. This means so much for our family.

Sorry I have not updated lately, but as you all know, life gets busy. Sierra has had a rough time lately. For the past month and a half, she has had a few UTIs, a kidney infection, and double ear infections.AS a result, she has had 2 hospital stays last month at Children’s Hospital in Columbus. In addition, she is not urinating very much on her own. So, we are now having to catheterize her every day. With cathing, that can also increase her chances of getting another UTI. Along with these medical issues, she has had periods of extreme tiredness, sometimes sleeping almost the entire day. Today, she was moaning a bit so I am praying we are not getting another UTI. If you could, please keep her in your thoughts in prayers.
As for the fundraising, we are still raising money for her wheelchair van. All donations are tax deductible and anything is appreciated.
