Christy Doyle's Fundraiser:

Helping McKayla & Family

Christy Doyle


I am the parent of an 4 year old daughter named McKayla. She was diagnosed with the genetic disorder called Angelmans syndrome. It took several & many trips to specialists before I knew the name for McKayla symptoms. I could finally start the process of understanding why she doesnt talk, why she had difficultly learning to walk along with the many trips to the hospital with seizures.
McKayla has beaten alot of odds & is trying so hard to walk walk(many AS kids do not) with the help of AFO's & of help from school & in home. However she will never have more than a few spoken words. She is a bright & happy child with an infectiuos laugh. This too is part of her syndrome. McKayla currently attends PACE kids here in Calgary.
As parents we have found emotional support through the Canadian Angelman Syndrome Society through the internet. Every year there is a North American informational conference for parents & caregivers. This year the confernce is close to home at the Delta lodge in the Kanaanaskis. My attendance at the confernce would assist us in understanding what our expectations for my child should be & would then give us the correct information to share that knowledge with our family our friends & our community. This is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity for us.

The expense of this conference is beyond our means & because of this we are turning to you our friends/family for some help. Any help would be appreciated & gratefully accepted. I have attched a short summary of the cost for your convenience.

Thank you for your time & consideration of this request.

Cost of Aide is $720 for 3 days (72hrs x 10 = 720).

Any little bit will help. Please help me send my blue eyed angel & me to this conference. It will truly mean the world to myself & my family.
