Hello my name is Jennifer Hall and I'm writing on behalf of my 3yr old daughter Nevaeh whom has Cerebral Palsy due to a brain injury at birth. We would love to take her more places but sleeping arrangement don't fit our needs. We saw a product called a Safety Sleeper and it would be great for her. It has holes for her feeding tube and it keeps her from falling off the bed when she has her seizures. We want her to enjoy life and be as much like other kids her age as possible. This bed would allow us to stay so many places and know that she is safe but we can't afford. Can you please help? Thank you and God bless.
