Help for Baby Alli

Our beautiful baby girl, Alli, was diagnosed with SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) at 2 weeks old. SMA is the #1 genetic killer of kids under the age of 2. the mind is unaffected, while the muscles waste away. On July 2nd, Alli went into respiratory failure and coded at St. Francis Hospital, she was air lifted to Seattle Children's Hospital where we have been ever since. Its been a long hard road, a few times we thought we were going to loose her. Alli then had surgery to get a tracheotomy. This was a difficult decision on our family but I think we made the right choice for our family and Alli. The thing about Alli is that constantly amazes me. After everything she's been through she is a genuinely happy child, so strong, smart and she always has a smile on her face. She's a favorite with the nurses and doctors and everyone who meets her instantly loves her! We are so happy to have her home with her brother and sisters so she can be part of our family again!
The only problem is financially being at the hospital for 2 months has taking a toll on our family, and that is what this fundraiser is for; gene therapy research through Dr. Kaspar at Nationwide Children's Hospital and helping Alli get necessary equipment, adaptive toys, and anything else she may need. Any donations received through the PayPal button below will be split 50/50 for supporting Gene Therapy research and Alli's personal needs. Our family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for your help and support! It means the world to us!
