This is Kaidence, my cousin’s 4 year old little girl. Kaidence suffers from a rare form of epilepsy, which makes her ineligible for the traditional treatments. She has suffered over 350 seizures since they began at 11 months old. Her entire story is here.
They weren’t able to fully enjoy trick or treating last night because Kaidence seized while going door to door. Kaidence is not getting a chance to have a normal childhood because epilepsy keeps stealing it from her.
Kaidence and her parents need your help. They’re unable to afford treatment from any doctors who might actually know what they’re doing. They don’t have a spare $15,000 lying around, which is the cost for their portion of adopting a seizure dog for Kaidence. In the last 48 hours, when the campaign began, several fantastic people have given generous support. But we’re still a long way from the goal. Please, please, if you are able, please find it in your heart to help this happy, little girl who fights and struggles every day. Please share Kaidence’s story with anyone who is willing to listen and may be willing to help. I have hope that with the right resources, Kaidence will be able to get what she needs.
Her mother, Samantha, said to me today, “That is truly amazing and such a blessing. Alex and I have been so used to struggling and going without and taking out loans to cover things and it’s just amazing that our friends and family and people we don’t know are so willing to donate for Kaidence.”
