Meet Evelyn Bor
Evelyn is a little shy at first, but after getting to know her, you’ll see she has the sweetest personality. She’s a happy 6 year old girl who absolutely adores her family. Evelyn, her mom, and her grandma have all lived together for nearly Evelyn’s entire life. Evelyn’s father abandoned their family before she was born, leaving her mom to provide for the family. Living off one person’s income and raising a child has been very challenging for her mother, but she is an amazing woman who would do anything for her daughter.
Evelyn has struggled with developmental issues since birth. She wasn’t progressing with the other children her age, which made her mom and grandma very concerned. Evelyn’s mom took her to several different specialists to figure out what was causing the delays. After many appointments, doctors, and tests, no one was able to diagnose Evelyn. It’s apparent she suffers from developmental delays, but without a definitive diagnosis, her doctors were unsure how to treat her symptoms.
We’ve visited a lot of doctors to try and find out what was causing Evelyn’s learning disabilities. No one has been able to tell me exactly what my daughter has, which scares me. I have no idea how to help my daughter, which is a terrible feeling for a parent.
Evelyn struggles with her language and motor skills. At four years old she learned to walk, but only with the help of special walking apparatuses. In regards to speech, she was fairly limited with what she could say. She could only say a few words including “mom,” “dad,” “hello,” “yes,” and “no,” but not much more. Speech therapy sounded like a great option for Evelyn, but since they were living only off of her mother’s income, it was too expensive for them to afford. After lots of research, her mom came across the speech therapy sponsorship offered by FAST. She was extremely excited about finding this opportunity and quickly applied Evelyn for the program.
My daughter has suffered many financial troubles to give my granddaughter what she needs. It would be a great blessing for her if she were able to obtain a sponsorship for Evelyn’s speech therapy.
Evelyn desperately needs speech therapy but her family is unable to afford the treatment she needs. You could be the donor who helps Evelyn get the therapy she deserves through a FAST sponsorship. Donate today, and give Evelyn the gift of speech.
