Makayla is recovering from back to back surgeries

February 17, 2016

Alaina told us lately that things have been rocky for Makayla. She endured 2 brain surgeries, (number 32 and 33!) back to back so she is still in the recovery phase. She tells us, “her perspective and optomism inspire me everyday as she refuses to be defined by a disease with no cure.”

Bailey has been a HUGE help in her recovery. "The gift of Bailey from Chive Charities has been more than the gift of a much-needed medical service dog. Bailey has given Makayla a sense of purpose - a reason to live - because she knows Bailey depends on her just as much as she depends on Bailey. The gift is... priceless."
