Emergency Medical Flight for Allyson

Emergency Medical Flight for Allyson

From Taj Artis

My daughter Allyson needs a medical ambulance flight to Illinois from California. I will take care of her. She's in a wheelchair, has tube feedings, and a poor immune system. It is unsafe to travel in other ways. Thanks!

Hello everyone. I am so excited and grateful to announce that we have reached our fundraising goal for my daughter! Allyson will now be able to travel from California to Illinois in a safe way. She will fly by private plane!

We raised a little bit more than the fundraising goal. Any extra monies received for Allyson will be used by her to pay off a very high boarding fee for her precious dog Leia ($5,000.00 because Allyson was hospitalized, etc. for many months).

Thank you for the support! The prayers, well wishes, and the funds were are very much appreciated and we are grateful!

UPDATE! One of Allyson's friends has been able to secure a private jet for Allyson to fly from California to Illinois in. The pilots are writing off most of the flight costs. We would need $8,000.00 for this flight, which is $12,000.00 less than the medical ambulance flight. 

We have raised about $2,500.00 so far (Fundly, CashApp, Zelle). I believe that we can do this! We have to let the private pilot know by tomorrow (January 6th). Thanks for all of your help!

Allyson is a loving, adventurous, and generous person. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. She could use the same kindness right now.

Allyson was diagnosed with lupus three years ago. Last January, she suffered severe complications from the disease after catching the flu. Now she has a tube for feeding, needs extra supports for breathing, and is also unable to walk a few feet with the help of a walker. She is mostly in a wheelchair. 

Allyson needs to come home to live with me in Illinois so that I can take care of her. She is currently being cared for in a California rehabilitation center following multiple hospitalizations. Because her body cannot fight off viruses, flying commercially is not an option. It would also be extremely risky to drive Allyson on a 2-day trip by car.

Allyson needs to travel by a medical ambulance in the sky. It is safe, fast, and staffed by licensed medical professionals, much like an ICU space. Allyson is due to discharge from a rehabilitation facility  within just a matter of a few days (she has not been home from hospitals, rehab centers for nearly 7 months) and her free transport fell through. We need to quickly raise $20,000 to get Allyson home, as well as her helper dog, Leia.

Please donate to help Allyson with this medically necessary emergency expense. I know that she would do the same thing for you. Thank you so much!
