On March 1, 2013, Chrissy and Eric welcomed 5lb 10oz William Winston Blevins into the world. That same day they learned that Baby Winston has a very rare condition known as Heterotaxy Syndrome. Heterotaxy impacts organ development and has directly affected the development of Winston's heart. Due to the complexity of his condition the family has turned to the talented and caring staff at UVA Medical Center's PICU in Charlottesville, VA. In just a few short days since Winston's arrival, he has undergone one major surgery on his heart, and faces more in the very near future. As the family stands by Winston's side during this difficult time it brings much unexpected expenses as they have decided to relocate to Charlottesville during his time in the UVA Medical Center versus traveling the 250 miles back and forth from Bristol, VA.
The outpouring of prayers and emotional support has been wonderful and we ask that everyone continue sending them to Winston, Chrissy and Eric, and the rest of the family throughout this difficult time. For those of us eager to find more ways to help, we have set up this site to provide financial support directly to the Blevins Family. Our hope is to share this page with as many friends, family, and even sympathetic strangers who are able to help offset expenses as the family deals with this incredible challenge. All donations go to Eric and Chrissy to assist with medical and travel expenses, and the cost of a comfortable place for the family to stay in Charlottesville, so they can focus all their energy into Winston's recovery.
