Chloe Langen, who will be four years old on the 7th of July was seriously burned on Friday, June 29th due to a campfire explosion.
Over 50% of her body is burned and her parents have three other children at home, one of them is only a few months old. She is going to be under sedation for a very long time and will be in the hospital for at least 50 days. She is in a hospital 2 1/2 hours away from where they currently live, so the family not only will have extremely large medical bills, but traveling expenses and lost wages as well.
They are going to need all of the help they can get. Please click the link to donate.
