Crestview girl overcoming cancer

Published: Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 10:38 AM.

The family’s sole income source is Mayberry, who works for a Baker landscaping business. Gary is a stay-at-home mom. Mayberry travels one hour from Crestview to Pensacola to visit Layla when he isn't working.

Medicaid will cover much of the medical costs, but other costs have added up, Mayberry said.

"We have gone through $500 in food and gas within the past two weeks," he said.

Complicating matters is the family’s living situation.

Evicted from a three-bedroom home last year, the family of six — including Layla’s siblings, Cody, 11, Bailey, 10, and Cheyenne, 4 — moved in with Mayberry's parents.

Space is crowded, and doctors have told Gary and Mayberry that Layla will need her own room to recuperate.

The couple has set up an account at BBVA Compass Bank for financial assistance.
