Anjuli & Jesse
@jennifer.jihye.ko lives each day with vigilance as she prepares for the likely onset of a psychotic episode. For Jennifer, Lyme Disease means neuropsychiatric illness, and is just one illness on a long list of physical and mental diagnoses including: Complex PTSD with Psychosomatization, and Fibromyalgia.
Jennifer loves her husband and caretaker, Chris, and she adores her 5-year-old daughter. Jennifer’s heart breaks when she is unable to play with her little girl due to pain, nausea, or mental and emotional instability. In pain and heartache, Jennifer and her family live with endurance, hope, and faith.
Today we surround @jennifer.jihye.ko and her family with prayer, donations, and encouragement —we get to remind Jennifer she is not alone. TODAY we are raising $2,000 for a psychiatric service dog for Jennifer. Visit @themomsweloveclub to REPOST this picture and DONATE ❤️ #loveforjennifer
@riahannonvaldez knows fear. She has handed her precious boy, Vicente (Jr), to teams of surgeons over 40 times, and logged months at the bedside of her son’s crib at Children’s Hospital. As Jr’s caregiver, Riahannon also knows the intense loneliness and isolation that comes with caring for a child with medical complexities, especially during a global pandemic. But Riahannon also knows gratitude, and she is thankful everyday she is able to care for her son and family.
Jr has a tracheostomy, relies on a ventilator with oxygen, and uses adaptive equipment to move independently. There are not many answers for Jr’s complex medical conditions, but Riahannon never gives up, and she prays daily for insight for her son’s medical team, and peace for her husband and 4 other children through the unknown.
TODAY it is our joy to post this picture, pray, and donate to LOVE Riahannon — we get to remind @riahannonvaldez she is not alone in prayer or in the unknown. Jr’s immune suppression means he is unable to go to parks, or venture far from home. Today we are raising $2,000 for concrete in Rhiannon’s backyard to ensure a safe place for Jr to play.

When @allyhotch was a child, her body began to hurt. Her shoulders and hips would dislocate regularly. She was in constant pain. Doctors couldn’t find a cause. It wasn’t until she was married that the answer came. Ally was diagnosed with a condition called, “Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.”
This rare condition is a connective tissue disorder that causes complications affecting her entire body- from organs to nerves to joints. Ally’s body is in constant, throbbing, immobilizing pain. If she moves in the slightest wrong way, her joints can dislocate. Simple tasks take hours. She needs help to move, eat, bathe, and put on her shoes. There is no cure.
Ally finds hope in Jesus and the laughter of her two daughters. Her husband is a full time, unpaid, caregiver. Even when struggles mount up against them, God is their rock. He sustains them minute by minute. TODAY we get to love @allyhotch! PLEASE repost this photo anywhere on social media, pray for Ally, and donate. Our goal is to raise $2,000!
