.........Help build a miracle……for a miraculous little girl!2 1/2 year old Emylie was born with Spina Bifida and Arnold Chiari II Malformation. When Emylie was four weeks old her parents found out that she had pressure on her cranial nerves, a very rare symptom of the arnold Chiari II Malformation. She had lost her cough, gag and swallow reflexes and had central apnea. Because of this, they were told Emylie would need a trachestomy, ventilator and feeding tube to live.
Emylie is a little miracle. She has had numerous surgeries, experienced some setbacks and some major steps forward. Through it all Emylie has fought back and has proven some of her doctors wrong. And shown others there is always hope for a Miracle. She is an example of great courage, faith and determination to her family and so many around her. "She helps us see the little miracles in everything."
We are raising funds to build a home for Emylie and her family. A home that allows Emylie to be as mobile and comfortable as possible and is functional for Emylie's 24/7 care by her family and nurses. The funds will also help with medical equipment and tools for Emylie’s physical and educational needs to help her achieve her goals and her highest potential.
