Hello, My name is Melissa Henry-Taylor and I truly appreciate you taking the time to read my story.

My family and I have been blindsided by the thought that we could have lost our Little Bumblebee, Blessings, to such a rare condition as a Laryngeal Web.

Blessings is 5 years old, and it has been challenging and scary after she was originally diagnosed with severe narrowing of her airway due to enlarged adenoids. We became even more concerned when we were informed that our Little angel would have to undergo surgery at such a young age. The doctors needed to remove her tonsils and adenoids in order to open her airway.

The surgery was set to go ,but after the anesthesiologist put her to sleep they realized that her airway was even smaller than they expected ,(not even a tube for a 2 year old ,could enter her airway). We were then given the shocking news that our daughter's vocal cords are webbed together. This is a serious condition which prevents her from being able to breathe and perform daily childhood activities for any long period of time.

After many sleepless nights and trips to hospital, we are now confronted with the reality that the treatment our daughter needs cannot be performed in Barbados. Blessings will have to travel to Texas to receive the much-needed surgery. This is a major procedure to open her airway by removing the Web and placing a keel to separate her vocal cords.

My family and I are seeking your kind assistance in helping us to raise the $80,000.00 needed for her treatment.

Any amount that you are willing to contribute is so greatly appreciated. If you are unable to make a monetary contribution,a share of this post with friends and family would mean the world to us.
