Current Progress towards the 2016 Goal:
This fund is set-up to provide support for the Kinkle family and their immediate needs for Kiira. The family is raising funds for a medical exam table to do Kiira’s bandages on. Currently, Kiira’s bandages are done on the floor, which is uncomfortable and unsanitary, when fighting infections in Kiira’s wounds are of utmost importance. We really appreciate your support!
OR you can purchase supplies (and other items) for Kiira directly from her
Amazon Wish List: http://www.amazon.com/
The calculated annual estimate of costs for Kiira’s bandages, medical expenses, and in-home care is about $20,000.
Any amount is very helpful and is 100% tax deductible. For any donation over $250, you will receive an additional tax-deduction receipt for your records. This will be mailed to you in January to the address we have on file.
