Family and friends of Mia Suarez are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund a wheelchair accessible van.
Mia is a identical twin that suffered a birth injury called hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. During the birth or shortly after Mia lacked oxygen to her brain that cause this injury. Because of her HIE it caused several problems like not being able to breath on her own. She got a tracheostomy when she was two months old. Another problem HIE causes is feeding issues. In Mia’s case she doesn’t have a suck or swallow reflux which caused her to get a feeding tube. She was released from the nicu after 71 days. The doctors didn’t expect her to live long but she proved everyone wrong. Today she is 3 years old and such a fighter! She has quadriplegic cerebral palsy so she doesn’t walk YET! I say yet cause I believe one day she will. During the last three years its been easy picking her up and putting her in her car seat. Now she is getting much bigger its getting harder. She has a wheelchair that reclines because of her trach the bad thing about it is that it weighs 100 lbs. It barely fits in my SUV and its hard to try to lift it by myself. A lot of times I am by myself with the twins and I have to ask a stranger to help me with the wheelchair. As she gets older its going to get harder. That is why we are asking for your help to help fundraise to get Mia what she needs. Thank you for everyone who donates we truly appreciate you!!
