Jayme’s aunt, Jennifer Smith, posted the photos on Facebook.

In the post, Jennifer writes ‘Everyone is so proud of you, Jayme!!’

Jayme's cousin, Angela De Andriano, is managing the gofundme account Jayme is Home - Help Heal her Heart.

"These funds are going to go towards the journey with the family as they help Jayme through whatever it may be…driving to take care of her, taking her to the clinic, medical costs or anything," said De Andriano.

Often times in the wake of tragedy, bogus fundraisers pop-up on social media by scammers looking to take advantage of the situation.

"You’re going to want to examine the charity itself, the organizer; make sure they’ve included some kind of description of how they are related to the family, what specific details about what they’re going to do with the money," said Susan Bach of the Better Business Bureau.

A PO Box has been set where people can send cards and gifts:
Attn: Light the Way Home for Jayme Closs
PO Box. 539
Rice Lake, WI 54868

People can also send donations through the following banks.
