The girl with the big heart

HELLO, MY NAME IS ASHLEY DEGROAT. I AM KNOWN AS THE GIRL WITH THE BIG HEART. I CARE MORE FOR OTHERS THAN I DO FOR MYSELF. I SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION, I'VE HAD IT FOR 18 YEARS NOW. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH HELL AND BACK, FROM EMOTIONAL ABUSE TO PHYSICAL ABUSE. I'VE TRIED MANY THINGS TO HELP ME THROUGH MY PAST AND SONGWRITING WAS MY WAY OUT. IF YOU EVER NEED ANYONE TO TALK TOO, I AM MORE THAN WILLING TO LISTEN AND TO HELP. I KNOW PAIN, AND I KNOW SORROW, AND I WILL NOT BE HAPPY UNLESS I HELP OTHERS. Never give up, you are never alone and I am living proof.

Because you’re not fucking losing anything.

YES.

I’m a fan of opening night as well

Hello everyone, my name is Ashley, and my sister’s name is Alicia. In April of 2008 my sister was in an hit and run accident, which changed my families lives forever. My sister was only fourteen years old at the time, and she suffered a severe brain injury, and she was in a coma for months on end in the hospital. My sister had to undergo many brain surgeries due to the severe trama to her head, as well as collar bone surgery due to trama to her shoulders and arms. My sister was in the hospital for so long, which resulted in her having little mobility to the right side of her body. Doctors told my family that she would not survive, and if she did, then she would be in a vegetated state for the rest of her life. However, she eventually woke up out of her coma, although she had little responses to stimulation. Over time she started responding to people and interaction, but I knew that she would never be the same again. Eventually we were able to bring my sister back home, although she required a hospital bed, a wheelchair, and other special items. She had a trakea so she could breathe, and she had a feeding tube. My mother, Melissa, had to take money out of her retirement funds in order to pay for the items that my sister needed, such as the food that could be administered through a feeding tube, that insurance would not cover. My family suffered financially, and they are thousands of dollars in debt. My sisters life is changed forever. Now she is twenty years old, and she has to stay in highschool until she is twenty-one years old. My sister was going to physical, occupational, and speach therapy, until the insurance stopped covering it. Alicia has difficulty reading, writing, talking, and finding the right words to come out. She often gets frustrated with herself, and she realizes that she cannot do a lot of the things that other people can do. My sister is in a wheelchair, although she is practicing everyday to get better. My sister has made a miraculous recovery, although she still has a long journey to go. I am asking for any help in order to help my family, and ensure a better future for my sister. Everything helps, even if it’s a one-dollar donation.

Please spread the word and thank you all!
