Hi, my name is Becca. I will be getting a guinea pig in just a few short months. I created this fundraiser to help with the upkeep and food for the guinea pig I will have. I am getting the guinea pig as a companion for myself because it will help with my depressioon and anxiety, as well as my disability. I was born with cerebral palsy and as a result I have limited functionality on the right side of my body, because of this I have grown up with very few friends and as such it is part of the reason that I have also been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Some days I really don't want to get out of bed and I feel that having a companion no matter how small will help make my life happier and easier, and make the bad days less frequent. So please help me with my wish of owning a new friend.
