A fellow crafter is doing a fundraiser and shared this story about a baby girl named Kamdyn Taylor the other day. It really tugged at my heart strings and I felt God wanted me to also do a fundraiser for her. My daughter Gracie just got over RSV and I am so grateful that by God's grace she is healthy and happy now. But, she could have easily been in the same position as baby Kamdyn. Here is her story...
Kamdyn was born in February and was a healthy baby. Her mom and dad took her home and loved her for a month and a half. They even had 1 month pictures taken of her. Around 2 months old she developed RSV, which later turned into pneumonia and then a collapsed lung. She has been airlifted to 3 different hospitals, but has resided at the Houston Children's Hospital now for almost a month. When she first arrived there, the doctors said she would most likely not make it through the night. We prayed hard for her. The next day she had a 40% chance of survival. Now weeks later she is still fighting for her life, but improving each day. Seeing the pics of her are heartbreaking. Eyes taped shut in some of them, an i.v. in her tiny little head. Her parents can't even hold her. I have faith that one day she will be back home and I know that with Granville & Katie not having much money and now being stressed with their lives being turned upside down and yet still trying to raise a 5 year old boy in the midst of all of it they can use any help we can provide. I am attaching photos at the bottom of the page all though they bring tears to my eyes it gives me hope that we can help them and pray for them and get Kamdyn home soon.
FOR THE NEXT THREE DAYS I WILL BE DOING A FUNDRAISER FOR PRECIOUS KAMDYN TAYLOR. IF YOU CAN FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO HELP THIS POOR BABY GIRL AND HER FAMILY OUT IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED BY MANY. FROM TODAY THURSDAY APRIL 8TH TO SATURDAY APRIL 10TH 35% OF ALL MY PROFITS FROM GRACIE'S GARDEN DESIGNS WILL BE DONATED TO KAMDYN TAYLOR'S FAMILY. EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYONE YOU CAN BUY SOMETHING FOR YOU CAN ALWAYS BUY SOMETHING FOR KAMDYN. I WILL BE SENDING HER SOME CUTE LITTLE GIFTS AFTER THIS FUNDRAISER IS OVER. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE MESSAGE TO SELLER AT CHECK OUT THAT THE PURCHASE IS FOR KAMDYN. THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE! I PRAY I CAN RAISE A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY FOR THIS FAMILY IN THEIR TIME OF NEED. I KNOW GOD HAS SINCERELY BLESSED MY FAMILY IN OUR TIMES OF NEED. THIS IS A HARD TIME FOR EVERYONE FINANCIALLY SO EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE, PLEASE KEEP THIS FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS THAT KAMDYN CAN COME HOME SOON. THAT, ULTIMATELY, WOULD BE THE BEST GIFT OF ALL.
