To benefit the Dream House for Medically Fragile Children
A medically fragile child is...
...dependent on life-supporting treatments, medication, therapy or equipment to survive.
Imagine being a child who has been abused, abandoned, or both.
Thousands of medically fragile children are living this existence. After suffering an illness, accident, abuse or neglect, they are abandoned by their families or removed from their home and placed in state custody. There are not enough trained foster families, or state-supported group homes and no formal community training program to teach families or care givers how to provide home care for these special children. These children are forced to remain in their abusive, neglectful homes or endure prolonged hospitalizations because there are no other options. For these children, there was no place that supports the quality of life every child deserves.
