Leila’s Journey With CDH
Given all this, I lost my job. I had previously been the bread winner, so losing my income took a large burden on us financially. We knew we couldn’t afford to continue to live in our home, so we came together with my mother and bought a house together so that I could be Leila’s primary caregiver and ease the burden on us financially. After not even a year, my mother had collapsed and had a heart attack and died. She was paying the mortgage and most of the housing bills. Not only had we suffered all the emotional losses, we now suffered financial losses.
Leila was also having increased seizures and GI issues and was hospitalized again. I had picked up a side job doing bookkeeping to help make ends meet. But with the extra hospitalizations, I was unable to work.
That is when I was contacted by the Incredible Teddy Foundation. After suffering so many emotional losses, the last thing a family needs is the financial burden as well. The ITF eased that burden and assisted us with financially so we could get caught up on the mortgage and several other financial losses our family endured. They were amazing and a life saver to our family!!! The process was so easy and there was very little turnaround time.
I can’t thank the ITF for there help during one of the most difficult times in my life! They helped us get on my feet financially and focus on what is really important, loving and caring for my daughters.
Thank you Incredible Teddy Foundation!!! We are beyond thankful to have such a wonderful organization helping families in financial need, during such heartbreaking times.
