My nephew’s daughter wasn’t feeling well and, upon a doctor’s examination, she was found to have issues with her heart and was admitted to a hospital. After 15 days in ICU in Tulsa, she was flown to St. Louis Children’s hospital ICU where she was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Dilated Cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart becomes weakened and enlarged. As a result, the heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body. Now little 2 year old Nova needs a heart transplant! We do not know how long she will be in St. Louis, but this will be a hard and costly journey as heart transplants can cost over a million dollars. My nephew has insurance but, as everyone is aware, insurance does not cover everything that is needed, not to mention the cost of traveling to and from the hospital and my nephew’s time away from work. I ask foremost for your prayers for Nova and for her family. We would appreciate your support with the purchase of a T-Shirt(via booster) and/or donation(via gofundme). Even the smallest donation is greatly appreciated. Every bit helps. Thank you!
A lot of reblogs but hardly any donations. Guys literally ANY little bit helps!
There have still been barely any donations. I’m talking if everybody could donate even just a dollar.
There have been some, not good developments, on the fundraising front. My extended family is really just not very nice okay they’re very selfish people. They tried to organize a fundraiser (it was a raffle) that they ended up losing money on because they made the fundraiser about them. They don’t know how to organize things. They just don’t. It’s been brought to my attention that my going around them and only addressing my cousin (the first entry was written by my mom, hence why he’s referred to as nephew) and Nova when making the fundraisers actually made my extended family mad. Because of that, they refuse to donate any money to the cause. It’s a really shitty situation. Their pride has gotten away, again, in helping this little girl get her transplant. I’ve since disowned them in a colorfully worded conversation, but that’s beside the point because Nova still needs your help.
I don’t know what to do. I’m trying everything but I can’t do this alone. If I could do it alone, I would. I hate asking for money like this but this isn’t about me. I am begging that you donate, even if it’s just a little bit. But you can’t rely on somebody else to make the donations for you. Signal boost after signal boost doesn’t give her what she needs. If you can find just a little bit of money for Nova, I will be grateful. She will be grateful. Her dad will be grateful.
I want to be able to say that this worked and that we helped. I want people to want to help this little girl live her life and I can’t do that alone. So I am begging you to donate anything. Literally anything. Don’t worry if it sounds too big or too small. If everybody just made a one dollar donation who has reblogged this we could have at least $100 dollars. But 90% of the money in the fundraiser as of now has come from me. I need your help guys. Please, donate.
We’re making progress but it looks like we’ve hit a little bit of a wall. When I say ANY little bit helps, I mean it! We’ve managed to get off the ground but there’s still a lot more to be done here!
