Caregiver Stress Relief Fund
Being a caregiver of a child born with a disability brings with it a measure of stress that few truly realize. And, even if they see it, comprehending the impact is rare. Such caregivers give so much of themselves that they very often deprive themselves mentally, physically and emotionally. They tend to the needs of others while their own needs may be deferred or altogether denied. The pressure can become so extreme to the point where turmoil consumes the caregiver's soul. Suicide becomes an option, just as drugs become an option. If any of these become manifest, then not only will the child have to face their disability alone, but they will also face the harsh reality of abandonment. Without question, then, the need for the caregiver of a child born with a disability to have some “me time” is paramount. Thus, the purpose of this campaign is to generate enough funds to pay for an all expense paid vacation for caregivers as well as compensation for child care while they are on a well-deserved vacation.
