Mom and daughter seek help online

SAN ANTONIO -- The kindness of others comes in many ways; for a single mom and a sick child, the timing couldn't be better.

"She has a congenital heart defect.  She was only born with the right side of her heart functioning," said mom Heather Malcom.

Her daughter 3 year old Sydney Malcom was four days old when she had her first heart surgery.  In January, she'll have her fifth open heart surgery.

Heather, a single mom who also manages to hold down a full time job will have to take four to six weeks off during the surgery and recovery.

"I won't have any income coming in.  I have to be with her. The rent and all the other bills don't stop," said Heather.

To help with all the nonstop bills, a friend set up Sydney's story on a website GoFundme.com where you can make a donation.

Heather hopes to raise $5,000 dollars but says any and all help is very much appreciated.
