Nevaeh is a bubbly, beautiful toddler with cystic fibrosis and 2 healthy siblings. Her parents have chosen, like many other CF families, to have a stay at home parent to care for her needs and one parent to bring in income. Unfortunately, Neveah’s father has been out of work and had a payment dispute with a previous employer leaving the family in a terrible financial situation. At the same time, Nevaeh came down with Whooping Cough which can be fatal to children with cystic fibrosis.
Nevaeh’s doctors opted to put Navaeh on a strict home hospital regimen to keep her out of the hospital so the family would not be displaced. She is currently being cared for at home with round the clock treatments and medications and is showing great improvement.
The family applied for assistance through our Extended Hospital Stay Grant Program with their phone bill, an important lifeline when a child is under home hospital care, and their vehicle repairs so they could get her back and forth for her check ups. Due to the generosity of our new friends from Thrive: Making Money Matter, we were able to pay their bills in full so that they could focus on what’s most important ~ taking care of their children.
“We found out about Claire’s Place Foundation by searching Google. Claire’s Place Foundation was able to assist with us our cell phone bill and our extensive car repairs. Not worrying about our phones getting shut off and being able to get Nevaeh back and forth to the doctor allowed us to focus on taking care of her and was such a relief. I was able to exhale and relax a little.” ~ Nevaeh’s Parents
We hope these grants helped to create a bit of a bridge as Neveah recovers and her father gets back to work. Sending prayers for a speedy recovery and gratitude to all of our new donors for supporting this important program ~ your money is making a difference for real families like this!
