Highlighting Those In Need: Jessica from Iowa

Car Donation Applicant
1-800-Charity Cars, a nonprofit car donation charity, operates the www.freecharitycars.org site, where struggling families are able to apply for a free charity car nationwide. Today, we would like to highlight one of our car donation applicants to share with you the people behind the need.

Jessica Laurie has been a member of our vehicle distribution site since November 12, 2013, where she has applied for assistance in receiving a vehicle. Here is a summary of her situation that she wanted to share:

“My name is Jessica, my username on Free Charity Cars is Janyia Miracles Journey, and I reside in Des Moines, Iowa. I’m a single Mother of four children, and in desperate need of transportation.

Thirteen weeks pregnant, I had a baby in my tube that caused it to rupture and we both almost lost our lives. They did surgery and her oxygen was cut off for twenty nine minutes. Janyia was born with Hydrocephalus, Arthrogryposis, and spent four weeks in the NICU. She has had a lot of hospital admissions and stays that lasted upwards of a month at a time. She has had four surgeries, including two on her brain and two for GI feeding tubes. Janyia is unable to feed, developmentally delayed, and has no use of the waist down.

Janyia is a strong girl. She wasn’t expected to be with us, and she fought to come into this world. Janyia is proof of miracles and her will to fight so much shows us GODS grace and faith. Janyia has an in home nurse, OT/PT/speech therapy, GI, Neuro, and Ortho specialist she sees regularly. Due to Janyias Arthrogryposis, she has no use waist down and will require a wheelchair, so my family is in need of a handicapped accessible vehicle.”
