BENEFITING: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF SAN DIEGO INC
Taryns Hope ( 4 life ) is for our daughter 10 year old Taryn. Taryn suffers from a rare form of a mitochondrial disease, we have to travel 100 miles to her drs in san diego from our home in Corona, CA. Our Van we use to take her out in is old and in constant need of repair which is depleating our budget and any extra money we have for her supplements which help keep her healthy and alive. Currently she is fighting to recover from a major hip surgery which has her in a terrible spica cast. Our van is not an ADA compliant van and we struggle to lift her into the car seat and then lifithg her wheelchair is getting more and more difficult. The van could break down at any time, and actually did on a trip to see friends in Nevada, stranding us on the Cajone pass, very dangerous! We desperately need a new van to continue to our journeys to the dr.'s and also a van set up to wheel a chair into so we do not have to ever leave her benind again...
