The family of Cierra Ford are looking to raise money to help fight her battle with cystic fibrosis. Cierra needs her mother by her side.

Cierra has had many problems over the last 6 months. Cierra has cystic fibrosis which affects her lungs and digestive system. This disease is lifethreatening. genetic, and currently there is no cure. Cierra was in the hospital July, August and September. She entered the OR for the 10th time in her short 12 years of life. She has had 4 collapsed lungs and most recently serious problems with blockages in her intestines. One of the worst parts was being in the ER and watching your child as she is curled up in the fetal position crying and rocking because she was in so much pain. There was nothing I could do for her. When I was 25 weeks pregnant with her I found out she was going to have CF. Johns Hopkins offered to send me out of state for an abortion but I told them God would not give me any more than I can handle. There is never a day that goes by that I don't feel blessed in having her in my life. She knows that her illness will result in either a cure, lung transplant, or death. At this stage her lungs are working at 52%. At 30% the hospital considers transplant. This time last year her lungs were at 74%. Thats a huge difference. The worst part is knowing that I will have to bury my daughter. Every parents nightmare. We need help with expenses related to her medical care like gas, parking, lodging for me to stay with her, food, vehicle repairs for traveling back and forth to Baltimore. There are also some items the insurance does not pay for. Also please feel free to pray for her. Thank you to everyone who takes time out to read this
