Elizabeth is a beautiful 6 month-old little girl that has never been able to go home from the hospital. Following open heart surgery, her family has gone to great efforts to be closer to their daughter, as they live hours away. Elizabeth’s mom had to quit her job to be with her in her lengthy stay at the hospital. Between paying for gas, groceries, bills, school supplies, school deposits, and trying to save for Elizabeth’s sister’s upcoming Quincenera, the family has faced extreme financial hardship with the single income from dad that they are now forced to live on. In fact, they no longer had any funds for the celebration of this milestone as any funds they have go to necessities. The Extra Step was able to aid the family in supporting their other daughter’s Quincenera.
