Mariya Carter, God's gift! Our sweet angel that is fighting to make it in this life despite the circumstances she is facing. Born on April 12, 2012 with AV canal (atrioventricular canal defect) and down syndrome. Mariya, was only able to share her home with her family for a short while due to medical complications.
At less than one month of age, she was diagnosed with an intestine blockage and had surgery on May 9, 2012 to relieve the blockage. Mariya is scheduled to undergo a heart surgery in a few months. In the recent days Mariya's health has had some setbacks and her heart surgery may have to be performed sooner than expected. With 3 siblings at home, two loving parents and lots of family and friends she has lots of TLC. Through it all, her family is experiencing hardships and I would like to show them some support by helping them out with some donations. Please help Mariya's family so that they can be by her side during this difficult time. Thank you in advance. You are appreciated and may God reward you for your blessing.
