Deaf students live in a silent world.

North Texas Giving Day could not come at a better time for us. Mommies In Need has been operating since October of 2014 and we have provided over 1,700 hours of nanny help to our families. We were already committed to providing care for Jenny, who is going through chemo for Breast Cancer, when we heard about Cristal and knew we had to help.
On July 19th, Cristal had a stroke. She is a stay-at-home mommy to Sawyer (4) and Aleah (7 weeks) and is currently in an ICU after surgery to remove a blood clot in her brain. Full recovery from this will take months and we are going to be providing her with a nanny so that she can focus her energy on getting better.
On North Texas Giving Day, please consider donating to Mommies In Need. We are entirely run by volunteers and your money goes directly to providing nanny care for sick moms like Jenny and Cristal.
