Hello my friends. This fundraising cause is to assist us with the help & need in raising at least $15000 for our daughter's tuition in order for her to stay in school. She is an incredible young lady of 14 yrs old, who has survived great odds in her life since birth. She was born with transposition of her heart, a defect that required surgery to repair a hole in her heart at 11 days old. Thank God she has grown up to be a vivacious young lady, who is full of spirit, intelligence, and just a whole lot of love. We had a financial downturn in our lives that resulted in our inability to keep her in her school, where she is a bright and promising student. We are working two jobs each, her mother & father, in order to make ends meet, as well as working in keeping her afloat. We came to Crowdrise for help in order to address our need for assistance for tuition. We have faith that we will make it, with the help given to assist our little girl with her dreams of success. We are faithful that there are those who will read this story with a compassionate heart in wanting to give a student a chance, opportunity, in receiving a good education, especially if she has earned it. Your money will not be given in vain, by any means. Her dream is to go on to Stanford after high school. As a parent, as any parent, we only want to give our children the best opportunity to succeed, in becoming a viable asset in society. We know, this is one child, our child, but we, as you can see, will go to any extreme in seeing that she will get that opportunity in reaching her dreams. We can only pray that support will come by way of this site, since tuition is one such platform, in assisting us in supporting a promising future for our Jonnel. God bless younand thanks.
