This beautiful little girl is named Anaya. She is in desperate need of breastmilk to keep her alive! There are some things you can do to help (even if you can't donate milk), but first, here is a little bit about her:
Now... how can YOU help?
A friend of theirs writes:
"I promised this little girls mother I would exhaust every avenue I had of getting the word out that her baby daughter (who has a fatal disease and has already lived 5 months past her prognosis solely because of the breastmilk her mother has fought to feed and save her with) is in DESPERATE need of donated breastmilk (within Canada, customs will not allow it over borders) and/or monetary donations (donations can be made thru link) to buy breast pumps and pay for shipping of donated breastmilk from out of area mamas who are giving her their milk because it has literally saved her life up to this point and she cannot tolerate anything but human breastmilk and cannot live without it. Here is the request written by her mother:
I'm looking for donations of breatmilk for my daughter Anaya. She is terminally ill with Krabbe Leukodystrophy. We were told to expect her to die at 13 months. She is now 18 months old thanks to BREASTMILK. She does not tolerate formula. Please, please help me keep my baby alive. We will have it shipped from any major city in Canada. Contact me at email@example.com or atwww.healinganaya.blogspot.
PLEASE help in any way you can! If you have any questions or if there is anything you can do, comment below and I will contact you. You can also write her directly thru her email listed above or her blog. Please go to her link and donate if at all possible. This mama needs help saving her baby and I pray that we can find a way to help her do that! If you cannot donate, please know that just re-posting this and spreading the word that this baby is in need brings her one step closer to receiving the help she deserves and that is such a wonderful gift and means more than you know! Thanks mama! You are all amazing! ♥ Much love!
(Just so you know: She is already associated with Human Milk 4 Human Babies Global (and her local network) and cannot get enough milk to sustain her daughter within her area which is why she needs any and all help she can get. Thanks so much again for your concern, everyone!!!!)"
Update from their friend with a few more details:
She lives in Nelson, British Columbia (Canada) and breast milk donations (frozen, fresh or on demand if close by) from within Canada would absolutely amazing (and she will work out ways to get it shipped from major cities in Canada to her, etc.) and monetary donations from anyone, anywhere who can help are greatly needed and appreciated and taken through her website- www.healinganaya.blogspot.
