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.

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!!

Today has been an extremely long day. I saw an Endocrinologist today, because my calcium level has been high. Four tubes of blood work was taken to find out why. I will get the results hopefully by the end of the week. It totally wiped me out today. ‘Im so tired of doctor appointments and needles. I’m so tired of being in pain. I’m so tired of being tired. Please pray that one day through all of this I will be able to be independent again and not so tired or in so much pain. I have a beautiful daughter, beautiful family, and beautiful friends that have continued to be here through the trentches of this. I am so grateful for everyone for everything. To all of you who have donated thank you from the bottom of my heart you are going to make such a huge difference in my life and my mobility .
I will keep yall updated!!
Sending all my love!!
