Baby Hannah was born on July 11th 2013 and she was 7 weeks premature. She was in the hospital (NicU) until Oct 16th. She has had and continues to have many issues. She was born with Congenital adrenal hyperplasia and Bowel Disease and many other smaller health issues (heart,skin). Baby Hannah is going to need many surgeries to get better and with those surgeries comes many bills.We have been unable to work since her birth because 1 of us had to be in the NicU with her and the other 1 was with our other children at home. Baby Hannah has many doctors appointments sometimes as many as 8 a week. Hannah will be going to Sick Kids Hospital on Nov 9th that is when they plan on doing 1 of the operations she needs. Hannah will likely remain at Sick Kids for a month or so and then return home only to have more operations in Feb of 2014 (Just to update you Hannah is now at Sick Kids Hospital).The doctors are guessing Hannah will need somewhere in the range of 7 to 9 surgeries in all to fix most of her issues then at a later time she will have some plastic/reconstructive surgeries. We are asking that you support us as we try to raise money to help offset the bills that are stacking up and to help with the many bills that will follow.Hannah's medications that she will be on for the rest of her life are over $800 a month She is also likely going to need plastic surgery when she is older .Please give generously Help Baby Hannah in her courageous battle with C.A.H, Bowel Disease and Heart and other medical issues.
Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) refers to any of several autosomal recessive diseases resulting from mutations of genes for enzymes mediating the biochemical steps of production of cortisol from cholesterol by the adrenal glands (steroidogenesis).
Please note the $5000 figure is a small one because if you do not raise at least your target goal they (indiegogo) keeps 9% of the funds raised. We are hoping to blow past the $5000 mark.
I have been told some people are having a hard time making donations if that happens to you please try again just to make sure and if it continues please comment and I will try to help you through it. Every dollar helps us and I would hate to lose a funder because of a site issue. Once again thank you for supporting Baby Hannah and our family.
