Nytro devotes her life to helping children to not be afraid of the world in which they live. As a board member of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) an International group Nytro helped open in Maricopa County Arizona, she devotes the majority of her time to protecting and empowering children that have been abused. Now Nytro needs help to protect her own grandson who is 10 years old.

She has had custody of her grandson since XXXX. Her daughter has had some issues and is working hard to get her life straightened out. While her daughter was in the hospital, her grandson’s father decided to take advantage of the situation to file for custody of the boy, even though he has played a very limited role in his life. He hasn't paid child support since April of 2014 and believes getting custody of his son will alleviate that financial burden.

The Father has filed an Injunction for Harassment and a Protection Order against Nytro and put her grandson’s name on it, which means that when the child came home from school last Wednesday, Nytro was not there and could not explain to him why, since she is not allowed to have contact with him. She had to move out and have no contact with her grandson who she is very close with. If she is caught at home or with the boy she can be arrested.

Her daughter hired an attorney and Nytro raised over $3,300 in 2 days from the kindness of her friends. $2,500 went to pay the attorney’s retainer and the rest has been set up in an account to pay for ongoing costs. This allowed Nytro and her daughter to go to court last Thursday to fight for custody. An evidentiary hearing is set for December 5, 2014. Nytro still can’t go home to be with her grandson but she is going to court on November 4 to try to have the restraining order dismissed.

The worst part of this is that her grandson has suffered so much due to his father’s actions. He has talked about suicide, has been crying, wet the bed and got into a fight at school, all unusual behavior for this child. At Nytro’s suggestion that court has ordered counseling for the child, which will cost them $500. The costs keep mounting but she will never give up.

Please help Nytro retain custody of her grandson.
