Christian's Eye Surgery
Hello, my name is Christian. I am 24 and recently moved from Alabama to Kentucky after earning my Masters degree. I have remained employed since the age of 15, earning most of my income as a bartender and teaching assistant throughout my collegiate years. My small financial savings I've set aside over the years were enough to keep me on my feet as I continue applying and interviewing for potential careers in KY. However, I was in a car accident July 31st that resulted in losing partial forehead and complete right eyebrow. My insurance will only cover partial medical codes and will not insure a FUT graft, which is what is needed for my eyebrow. I have reached out to local surgeons and through various consultations, the estimated cost is 5k-7k. I am hoping to raise up towards 10k for outstanding bills and for eyelid surgery, as well as scar revision treatments if possible. Thank you to anyone who is able to help me during this time, your gratitude is more than appreciated. Click the pic to donate and share my GoFundMe page!
4 Paws for Connor
Meet 2 1/2-year-old Conner Wright of Meade County! He was born premature at 28 weeks gestation and spent 9 1/2 weeks in the NICU at Kosair in Louisville. Currently, Conner has around 25 diagnoses including epilepsy, complex partial seizures, hypotonic cerebral palsy, sensory processing disorder, chronic lung disease, severe developmental delays and many, many more! Currently, Conner cannot communicate in any way and doesn't understand anything that he is asked to do or etc. He just recently started walking and he can only walk for short distances before his legs starts to get tired and wobbly and begin to give out. Conner currently has around 2-3 seizures a week. This is why his family is raising money for a Service Dog for Conner. Conner's dog will be trained by the outstanding non-profit organization 4 Paws for Ability
. Conner's dog will be trained to track him if he gets lost, alert them to seizures that are coming or that have already started, give Conner pressure and distractions when Conner is having a meltdown and will also be trained to be tethered to Conner to help him keep his balance and keep him close to mom! Conner's Service Dog will help his family
to keep Conner safe and will help him
to thrive, and be more comfortable in his environment! This will bring such a heavy weight off of their hearts and minds. It costs $22,000 to train these special dogs, but families need to come up with $15,000 of that. CLICK HERE TO DONATE FOLLOW THEIR STORY ON FACEBOOK HERE CHECK THEM OUT ON WDRB NEWS HERE ON WLKY HERE
