Tiffany is a single mother in need of a Handicap Accessible Van.
She has a condition called Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is usually caused at birth because of lack of oxygen to the brain. It causes the signals in your brain to not communicate correctly with the rest of your body. It affects all four of Tiffany’s extremities, especially her right side causing her muscles to have spasms, and be in a constant state of spatisity.

Hi everyone, How are you all doing? Its been such a difficult time not just for me but for everyone around the world. I have been praying harder than I ever have before. Howerver I know God is with me and all of us in the shadows and he is our constant and our rock. He has continually been working on my heart to continue to trust in him and he gives me peace when I need it the most especially in this shadow.
I want to update you on my plan of care at this point. I started occupational therapy a couple of weeks ago. Occupational therapy helps with things like being able to get in and out of the shower, stretching your arm and hand, picking up objects and finding different ways to cut food ect.
As of right now both physical therapy and occupational therapy have ended until sometime in May due to the Corona Virus . I will be going back to my physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor this month for a follow up on my Dysport “botox” injections. I’m praying that we can also come up with another way to alevieate my pain, because it is always constant.
It has been one year since my life changed forever and both my daughter and myself wouldn’t be able to get through this without any of you. I hope through my messages that you can feel my love for all of you who continue to be with us and walk through the trenches of this huge trial. Your love, comments, support and prayers are powerful and have blessed us in so many ways. Thank you for continuing to be with us as I continue my Journey to independence.
Sending all of my love to all of you!!!

Lots have happened since my last update. My test results for my calcium levels came back all normal. My elevated calcium level is likly due to not being able to walk since almost a year ago. We are trying something different in physical therapy icalled Mirror therapy. The idea behind it is to work the muscles in my right hip without physically moving my leg, by looking into a mirrior at my left leg moving, it actually looks like both legs are moving. This is to work the muscles in my right hip without causing added pain. I’ve only done it once so we will see how it goes in the upcoming weeks. I don’t feel the dysport “botox” injections working this time in my hip only my arm and hand. I will be discussing this with both my therapist and my doctor at my next appointments. I saved the best news for last. I went to a ladies brunch for my house church with the help of my church family last Saturday. It was alot of work to go but it was so much fun and wonderful. I am glad I went and it was so nice to see them. . I thank God every day for my family and for the people he has brought into the lives of my daughter and I to help us during our journey. I want to say a special thank you to everyone who has donated so far as well. This van will be such a blessing for me to go to my appointments by myself and to go visit my family and to go back to my church. This new way of life is extremely difficult for both Layla and myself however Im so grateful for all of you who have been helping us.
Sending all my love!!
My journey to independence!!
