In Need Of Help

Though I hate to do this, I have to. I need to ask to help. Unfortunately, we have to pay $10 a day to stay at the Ronald McDonald house, on top of that we have all of our regular bills at the house. On top of that Cody broke 2 of his teeth and he does not have dental insurance so we have to pay more than $500 out of pocket to fix his bottom tooth. His top tooth is chipped, but it isn't a big deal the bottom tooth is cracked down into the gum and is a big deal- it is painful for him. Kevin took off of work for 2 weeks when Cami went into the hospital and it was not paid. So, we are up a creek. I do not have a paypal account anymore. If you are able to help (even $10 will help tremendously) you can mail a check/money order to the Ronald Mcdonald house at

Ronald McDonald House
1315 Barbara Jordan Blvd
Austin, Tx 78723

If mailing a donation- please put my name Christy Faglie and Room # 28 on it so that it is credited to us.

You can donate online at You have to put in my name and room number. Also, please be sure to let me know that you donated so that I can be sure that it is credited. A friend donated last time and it was not credited until I told them and they tracked it down. (my email address is

You CAN pay over the phone via credit/debit card (I verified this today with the house manager) by calling 512-472-9844

If you are able to donate directly to them, that will help me tremendously- that way we won't owe them so much. We still owe them $80.00 from when we were here when Cami was born and as of now we owe them another $120.00. So, we are up to $200.00 now. I don't work- I stay at home with the kids and since Kevin was off for 2 weeks unpaid and any money I do have has to go to get Cody's tooth fixed- we are broke. We are not going to have a very good Christmas this year. Cody & Cami will be taken care of though- family has made sure of that. Kevin and I do not need anything- we just worry about having our bill here paid.

You can mail something directly to us here as well. Just send it to the address above but put my name "Christy Faglie Room # 28" on the envelope as well and it will get to me. If you would rather mail directly to us rather than give directly to the Ronald Mcdonald house you can do that as well. Just mail to the above, thanks.

I am sorry to ask for anything, I know this is a horrible time of year to ask for anything- I know my readers have their own problems to deal with and their own families to buy for. However, if you do have anything extra and can help- I would appreciate it.

They moved Sissy off of the strong ventilator that collapsed her lung today- they were worried that it may collapse her other one and that would be devastating. So, Sissy is now on the regular ventilator. That is both good and bad- good because it won't collapse her remaining good lung and they can also give her breathing treatments with this one and bad because she is de-satting with the weaker ventilator. I feel like I am on a roller coaster. However, it isn't about me- it is about that little girl who has been through so much in her 4 months & 2 days on this earth. Camryn is a little fighter, she is a strong little girl.

Thanks for reading & God Bless you all

  2. Hi

    I found your story through Her Womb, Our Hearts. I will be praying for you, and I thought I would share the link to make a payment in your family's name (you can do this with a credit card, so much easier than sending a check).

    Merry Christmas

  3. Christy & Family,
    I called the Rhonald McDonald house and made a donation in your name. They assured me it would be put on your account.I wish I could do more.
    I pray more people will step up and help during this season of giving.
    I am praying for all of you. Please take care of yourself. Give Cami and Cody a big hug from me.Sending a hug to you. Wish I could do it in person
    God Bess

  4. Christy & Family, I cant imagine the pain in your world right now but I hated to think of the struggle your going through financially at this time of the year which is why I just donated $200 via the website link and requested it be designated to you with your room number to clear out your balance. Hopefully this brings you a tiny bit of comfort this holiday season with one less thing to worry about.

    Much love all the way from Australia xoxo

    P.S I found your story on my sisters blog "Her womb, Our hearts"

  5. You are probably already aware but just in case you aren't I wanted you to know.

    " If the fee presents a hardship for a family, the fee may be waived. If the family is Medicaid elgible, Medicaid will often pay the room fee."

    That quote was taken from the Ronald McDonald House of Austin's website. I'm sure you would like to pay if you could but it can be waived if you cannot afford it. (I know from experience as I have stayed at one though in a different city and many years ago and was unable to pay at the time I have since donated money to them more than what my room charges were to give back cause I was so very grateful for the RMH)
