This is a true story and a true tearjerker. I’m a mom of 2 children, my two twin daughters where born with a rare medical condition called syringomyelia.
Syringomyelia is a chronic disorder that involves the spinal cord. The condition occurs when cerebrospinal fluid enters the interior of the spinal cord. This is normally found outside of the spinal cord and brain.
My community helped me out with my two daugther medical bills. They had an AWESOME fundraiser for me and my family. I could not have asked for anything more after this. I didn’t help at all with the fundraiser, it was a complete surprise to me and my family.
They had clowns painting face for $1.00 each. The local bakery sold 10 different pie sices for $5.00 each. They had a kid water slid for $2.00 for 1 child to ride. They had a contest who could eat the most buffalo wings in one sitting and the winner would have to pay exactly what it is that they ate. If you ate 15 buffalo wings, then you would have to give $15 for my daughters. The man who won ate a total of 74 wings. I thanked him later that evening.
We had the kids sing there favorite song on a karaoke machine and whomever finished first had to pay .50 cents towards our medical bills. But everybody helped out in some way and I am forever thankful of all.
