Our daughter Mikayla was born in February, 2014 with a chromosome deletion. It’s been a tough year – financially and emotionally. Our sweet girl has been through so many tests since this rare diagnosis. She continues to have therapy 5 times a week (1 PT, 2 OT, and 2 aquatics), while my husband and I both work full time at very demanding jobs, and also care for our 3 year old daughter. It has been quite a juggling act. We cannot express our appreciation enough for the CJ Fund grant. We used the money to purchase glasses for Mikayla (she is farsighted) and AFO braces for her legs to help her to learn how to walk. Thank you!
Without the generosity of CJ’s Fund, we wouldn’t be able to offer this benefit to families as readily. We’re so grateful to you both, to your families & friends & all who donate in your dear little one’s name to make these kind of small miracles happen! Our Team feels strongly that the love you held for CJ just keeps continuing outward in many positive and caring ways. We’re so grateful to you and all of CJ’s loving supporters – they’ve touched so many – across the state…thanks again for thinking of those children who are in need of Early Intervention – CJ’s Fund has made such a difference in so many young lives.
