Electricity is Connected! Construction Starts Today!

 

Several weeks ago, we helped Baby Lisa's family -- LaTanya and Troy Teller and their four kids -- get electrical service from their local utility provider. That's one (BIG) step closer to creating a safe, healthy home for Baby Lisa.

The next step is clean, running water. So we're starting construction on the family's bathroom and water line this week! 

See how electricity has already transformed this house, and how excited the family is...

Baby Lisa has a rare disorder called Microvillus Inclusions Disease, and she's waiting for an organ transplant at a medical facility in Phoenix. When she is released, her family will need electricity and clean, running water to welcome her home. 

The bathroom should take about two weeks to complete - the water line, an additional 1.5 - 2 months.

We hit our goal! Baby Lisa will go home!

 

Together, we raised over $50,000 to build a bathroom and a water line for Baby Lisa Teller and her family. When her surgery is complete, Baby Lisa can grow up surrounded by the family that loves her. What an incredible way to celebrate Mother's Day.

This is what her parents, LaTanya and Troy had to say when they found out:

We are so grateful... grateful for every video share, every email, every gift - big or small. Because of your generosity, we've exceeded our goal by thousands of dollars. We're still working to get the final tally and construction details in place. 

Keep checking your email for construction timelines and updates from the project. Share this email with a friend and tell them the good news!

 

Bring Baby Lisa Home for Mother's Day

 

We're all looking for a unique and meaningful gift for Mom. This Mother's Day, give a gift that reunites Baby Lisa with her mother, LaTanya. Make a gift in your mother's name and we'll send her this beautiful digital or print card (you decide!).

Your gift of love will change Baby Lisa's life forever. Every Mother's day card will help us build a water line, bathroom and septic system so Baby Lisa and LaTanya can live together again.
