Please help give Madison the best life she can possible have and to try and find an answer to her medical problems.

To start off I will tell you a little bit about Madison. Madison is a 2 year old little girl who has an unknown neuromuscular disease from birth. She was born at 39 weeks, she had a lack of oxygen was very floppy and couldnt swallow. She was in the NICU for 2 months, during her stay they ran many tests but were unsuccessful. She had one surgery while she was in there to place a feeding tube and while they were in there they had discovered a hernia around he esophagus that they immediately removed. She went home with her family in august but was hospitalized for 1 wk in sept and oct for respiratory infections. In november she became very ill with aspiration pneumonia and was put in the PICU. During a test her lungs collapsed and she had to be intubated. She never came out of it, she had to have a tracheostomy done because they knew she would be a long term ventilator patient. She was finally able to go home to her parents and big sister in febuary. She did good through the summer but unfortunatley the following november Madison was back in the PICU for the same reason, but it was worse this time. The doctors had to raise her settings on her ventilator, they were unsure if she was going to make it, her lungs are deteriorating. She finally got better and was able to go home again. Since then she has been doing pretty well but winter is right around the corner.
I am doing this fundraiser for Madison to help pay for more testing to find out whats going on with her. We would also use the money for equipment to try to help her muscles get stronger so she move around by herself and also so get a safe vehicle to take her to her appointments that are 2 hrs from home. We do get a little help but its mainly just enough to cover appointments and medications for her.
Im trying to do everything i can to make sure my child gets a diagnosis. I want to make sure she has the best life she possibly can and with your help we can make these requests happen. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
