Eslia Mc Collin, is a kind, honest, selfless, loving mother and grandmother, who has always loved and cared so much for the needs of others. In October 2004 when an unexpected tragedy strike, she experienced great horror when she lost one of her sons to a brutal murder by execution-style in his very own front yard coming from a hard day of work. With this sad and unfortunate passing, her now decease son left behind a baby boy only a month after the baby's 1st birthday. Not long after, the child's mother dropped off the baby boy at grandma Eslia's home and never looked back. In 2005 the court found the child's mother unfit to raise the child due to her unstable lifestyle and granted full custody to our grandmother.
Today our grandmother continues to raise and support the child with the help and support of the family. Our grandmother is 88 years of age and has been fighting for a very long time with cataract and glaucoma. Her greatest prayer is to keep her vision, so that she can have sight, her independence and more than anything else be there to see her grandson through high school. Grandma Eslia has truly been both a father and mother to this child.
Despite the pain and health challenges our grandma endures, she does not complain or ask, "Why me?" But instead she continues to trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If her condition is not treated our grandma could face permanent loss of sight. In Trinidad where our grandma lives, and where the cost of living is so high, there is a private hospital that can perform the surgical cataract and glaucoma procedure that she needs. Therefore, we are turning to this site with the goal of raising the financial sum that is needed to have the surgery done come June 3rd, 2019.
To see how much our family has overcome and has fought through to be where we are today, is already unimaginable, but to also know that there is nothing you can do to help your mother/grandma is an experience no family member should ever have to live through.
All mothers and grandmothers are precious, and we want to do everything we can possibly to keep our beloved grandma’s vision and to have her close to us for as long as possible with God's grace.
Please help us fight for Grandma's sight..
