I wish to further my education in the medical field to be able to work with ill babies In honor of my son Silas who was born with CDH.

It wasn't long ago that I was blessed to find out my newly wed husband & I would be expecting. For my husband this would be his first. For me this was my first son, but not my first child. None the less just 20 wks into our pregnancy we were given exciting news that we were expecting a boy & then in the blink of an eye that joy was wiped away when they told us he had less than a 50% chance of survival to delivery.

You NEVER think it will be you, but we won the worst lotto you can win. My husband & I decided the right thing to do was to give our son every opportunity to life that each of us deserve. Our son was diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia & a possible case of Fryns Syndrome. Through the pregnancy I spent more time at medical establishments than I did at home.

Our son was born & received into Heaven on Sept. 23, 2011 & stayed with us for 59 minutes & then was called home to be with our Lord. Just two weeks after this my husband (who was the only one working) got laid off! Left to fend if of this horrible economy & grieve many doors closed leaving us questioning this horrible world. After losing myself & many days of soul searching I have decided that my purpose is to give back to the children.

With that journey ahead to benefit our family & other families that battle horrible conditions with their children I make this page. You see I have contacted one of the local colleges & decided to go back to school to go into the medical field. Once I get my experience under my belt for 1-2 yrs I will focus working with these sick children. Maybe work for a specialist (pediatric surgeon), or children's hospital like Arnold Palmer or Winnie Palmer. my goal is to go to nursing school to become a LPN & then return to get my RN, but I want to specialize in working in the NICU.

So I graciously ask you to find it in your heart to help me raise the money to go back to school not only for myself but for the kids.

Thank you & God Bless each & everyone that donates. This means the world to me & is the best thing for my family. But most of all it will honor my son & honor my own self worth again.

Good Luck & thank you & God Bless..
