Hi, everyone, I have another favor to ask. One of my good friends Kelly is trying to raise money in order to be able to take her daughter Lauren to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN from July 22-24th. Lauren has an AVM or Arteriovenous Malformation. Hers happens to be in her brain, and the doctors here in Las Vegas have told Kelly that this is one of the biggest that they’ve ever seen. Kelly is a fantastic mom, and a great friend. She wants to see her daughter get better, and any type of help would be appreciated.
Here’s what Kelly wrote on the Gofundme page, “Lauren has appointments set up at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN on July 22-24 for a pediatric neurologist to look at her AVM. We could be there longer based on what they determine during her appointments. I just lost my job and her dad is unemployed and disabled - we plan on leaving Las Vegas on July 18 and we NEED help to get her there! Her local doctor has told us that it may not be safe to fly due to the size of her AVM so we must drive. It’s difficult to be in a position where you have to ask for help but it’s my daughter’s health - please, anything you can spare will be huge and go towards paying for gas, boarding and meals so that we may get her checked out by the best.
This site does take 5% of the donations made; the site they use for payments takes another 3% - if you can help and would prefer, donations can be made directly to my PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
There are links on the gofundme page to more information about AVMs.
Donations can be sent here.
You can contact me on FB here, or here on tumblr if you have any questions.
Kelly has been a wonderful friend, and both of her daughters are wonderful. If you can give ANYTHING please do so, and if you can’t please reblog this so that I can spread the word.
