Karma Charity of the Month
A big part of Moksha Yoga means taking your practice off the mat. Our studio supports a number of important organizations making a BIG difference in our communities through Karma Class funds and studio events.
June/July Charity of the Month – Declan Lord
In 2009, when Declan was 10 months old, he was diagnosed with Astrocytoma, which in short, is a spinal cord tumor. He had surgery at that time but the tumor had returned 8 months later and Declan required a second surgery and 28 rounds of radiation. Declan has gone through several additional hospital stays and surgeries and is currently in hospital recovering from a surgery to lengthen four muscles in each of his legs due to the previous tumor causing his muscles to lack growth (which will have to be done every 3-4 years until he stops growing).
Lindsay (Declan’s mom) will be living with Declan, at his side, for the next 14 weeks while he recovers and rehabilitates, away from home and their family. With these illnesses and surgeries, Lindsay obviously has conflict with her ability to work a normal full time job and make a single income to care for herself and Declan’s 2 siblings. Luckily Lindsay has a loving family and understanding and loving children that support her and Declan in these times of need.
Declan also currently uses a wheelchair and a walker as well as needing other needs of accessibility, which we all know, doesn’t come at a cheap price.
This go fund me page was opened in hopes that it will raise money to help with any financial stress that this family has had to go through in the last 9 years.
