Please meet my Great Grand Daughter Elizabeth Bass, her mother Brittany. They live in North Carolina. Elizabeth was born on March 31, 2015 at 31 weeks by C-Section to save her life and her mothers. She only weighed a little over two pounds. She has had three major surgeries so far and will have to have several more. There was a meeting with one of her doctors this past Friday and he explained there would be three necessary surgeries to her heart they would have to do. Two which would require her to be put on a bypass machine while they stop her heart to do the repairs and fix the arteries and vessels going to and from the heart. Will she survive these operations? The doctor side if she survives the first operation then they will do the second and so on. There are no guarantees. She is so tiny and fragile they can’t do anything right now until she gains more weight and becomes stronger.
There was a comment made that my Go Fund Me page was a scam. The person who wrote that post on Face Book needs to check his facts before putting ink to paper so to speak. Elizabeth is in Duke University Hospital Infant Intensive Care Unit ever since she was born. He could have called there and verified this, he could have called me, her mother, or her grandmother. If he didn’t want to call one of us, he could have checked with the hospital for the facts before calling me a scammer! People need to check their facts before calling someone a liar or a scammer. I pray this gentleman never has to face the reality of having a baby with multiple health problems and nobody to turn to.
If I was a rich person, or had won the lottery, yes she won’t have a thing to worry about, nor would her mother who was laid off from her job two months ago. She was helping her daughter with her bills until she was laid off, now she can’t pay her own bills. I don’t make enough to support three families or I would have never started the Go Fund Me account. I feel this account was much more serious to raise money for medical than a few that I’ve seen.
For Example: Please help me raise money to get my mother out of jail. She was arrested for selling drugs. Another one: Please give to football player who is still drawing his salary but was suspended for doing drugs. This is just a couple, another, please send money so I can get a down payment on a house. Please maybe I’m wrong, and my post isn’t serious enough to try and raise money for. If I’m wrong please let me know. My email address is Lburke1948@gmail.com I’d love to hear from you and the reason I shouldn’t try to raise money for my Great Granddaughter and Grand daughter.
