Survivor Story: Tayla Granstaff

My daughter Tayla was born with Partial Trisomy of the Number 1 Chromosome leaving her with multiple disabilities. She was diagnosed with a small brain mass 9 years ago. Which wasn't really causing any problems at the time, but now it has grown and is pressing on her optic nerve causing issues with her sight.

She will be having surgery to remove the mass on June 22nd, 2015 which is now bringing financial hardship to our family. 



I am a single mother caring for 2 children and only able to work part time.  I do my best to care for Tayla's multiple disabilities, but now with the cost of the surgery I am needing some help financially so I can be home with her after the surgery. 

This surgery will place a large financial burden on me as a caregiver of 2 children.




Well as a lot of my friends and family know, Tayla was released from the hospital on Thursday, July 9th following her surgery, but had to be taken back on July 11th because her nose kept dripping fluid.  We found out that it was spinal fluid, so they did surgery again on Sunday, July 12th to fix the problem.

We are doing pretty good but because of all the sedation and medications she is really week and is going to require physical therapy to learn to get up on her own and to walk again. 

I have been out of work for 1 month now and it may be another month before I can return to work so any help is appreciated.

Thank you again for all the prayers and love for my sweet Tayla!
