LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A 3-year old girl is undergoing treatment for leukemia, but that's not the only fight her family is facing.
Lillian was diagnosed with leukemia in May. Susanna Skaggs quit her job to take care of her daughter, relying on her husbands income and insurance.
She says, "Number one you're thinking save my daughters life please and number two you're thinking can we afford to pay for my daughters life, it's awful to think of it like that."
Susanna spent weeks making phone calls and applying for funds. The Skaggs make just enough money to be denied financial help, but not enough to pay for this on their own, even with insurance.
Susanna turned her frustration into a way of helping others. She says, "I decided I wanna help the middle man I'm tired of being the middle man who doesn't get accepted for anything that I need ya know."
The Skaggs have a donation account at Chase Bank for people to contribute to Lillian's medical expenses.
Once she gets better, they want to use the leftover money to start a foundation.
Her focus now, she says, "Just get her better, then get that foundation and help people I just wanna help people in my same predicament."
Fundraiser's to help the Skaggs family:
