Ryleigh's Story: A Daughter's Fight For Life After Debilitating Asthma Attack

A debilitating asthma attack leaves a little five-year-old Medford girl fighting for her life and her family struggling to make ends meet.  NBC5's Laura Cavanaugh files this exclusive report.


The family is in need of some basic medical equipment: a wheelchair ramp, an adaptive stroller and a lift so Ryleigh can go outside. They also need a swing, bean bags and a way to pay for all her medications.

They would even appreciate little things that they cannot afford like donated clothes for Ryleigh. She's a tall five year-old. She wears a size 6 clothing and a size 12-14 sock.

At the end of the month on a fixed income, the family can barely afford things like toilet paper and trash bags.

Again, the Paypal account can be referenced by Ryleigh's e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

And if you want to follow Ryleigh's journey, she has a Facebook Page at "Lil Miss Ryleigh" on Facebook.
