Help pay for my Scolibrace !
By: cayla gorham
Hi! My name is Cayla Gorham, and this is my story. My mother, Elizabeth Gorham was 5 months pregnant when she found out that i had AVSD (Artil Ventric Septal Defect) and Situs Inversus, which means my internal organs are reversed in my body. But only my stomach, liver, and spleen are reversed. Along with this, i was born one month premature, but was lucky enough to weigh 9lbs and 4 oz. I was also 21 inches long. I lost a pound before i was able to leave the hospital after 10 days in the NICU. I had to be fed every 2 hours with an eyedropper because i would get tired and fall asleep from regular nursing. They decided that i needed to weigh atleast 20 lbs before i could have my first open heart surgery, but I made it to 11 pounds and unfortunetly wasn't able to gain anymore by 5 months old. I had many holes in my heart so it was like i only had one chamber instead of four, meaning EVERYTHING in my heart were mixing together. During the open heart surgery they had created walls within my heart from my Pericardium sack that surrounds my heart which then grew into chamber like muscle.They also implanted a pacemaker right below my ribcage in the middle of my abdomen to regulate my heart. Once i turned 5, i had to go back into surgery for a replacement battery, and then again for a third surgery for another replacement battery at 9. Once we moved to Texas, after a few years, we got an X-ray for my back which we disovered i had Scoliosis. I'll get to that in a minute. In 2016, on the X-ray, we saw that one of my leads (wires) were broken so we went to the Hospital again to mark my 4th surgery. This time they put in a Defibulator-Pacemaker under my collarbone. Now about my Scoliosis, i have 2 major curvatures in my spine, and now that im getting taller, my spine is starting to rotate everything and my ribs are starting to jolt out on my right side. My chiropractor recommended a Scolibrace (3D back brace to fit my specific scolosis) , which is a 3 hour round trip there and back , which we JUST found out that it is $4,000 which needs to be paid in 3-4 WEEKS! , plus the monthly travel expenses. I am coming on here to try to get help for my parents to pay for my medical bills and or the travel expenses. My medical expenses have cost thousands if not a million dollars yet since birth. And i would really love to help them with this bill. And although we usually have good insurance, not everything is covered and we have a really high deductible. Anything is very much appriciated ! Please help me to help them !

What Our Clients Say


We are launching our inaugural event to raise funds for water purification systems to be placed in third world villages. I needed a website built on top of a platform well suited for ticket sales and donations. After reviewing several SaaS providers, I chose MyEvent.com. Rob is a pleasure to work with and has a team that is responsive and inventive. I'll be using MyEvent for the many years to come.
