Kailey and Breley Vandrovec were born September 3, 2010 at 24 weeks gestation. Two days after birth, Breley passed away. After an extended stay in the NICU, Kailey has been thriving and is a smart, beautiful and active 2 1/2 year old. Because she was a micropreemie and her lungs are underdeveloped, a recent virus (metapneumovirus (hMPV)) has hospitalized her. After regressing, the decision was made to fly Kailey from her hometown of Sioux Falls, SD to the Children's Hospital in Minneapolis. She is currently on life support, but has been stable enough to avoid ECMO. Kailey has always been a fighter and is once again in for the fight of her life.
The prayer warriors have been out in full force and God is hearing them! In addition to the prayers, this site has been set up to help support Kailey and her family financially. Her parents, Jess and Terry, have been splitting time at the hospital while also trying to keep things going at home with Kailey's big sister, Mya (9), and little brother and sister, Ty and Taylor (3 months). With the transfer to Minneapolis, the distance between home and the hospital has become much greater; thus travel, lodging, and food expenses have increased. Donations made on this site will help cover incidentals and medical costs as the Vandrovec's fight to get their sweet little girl healthy!
Thank you for supporting this tiny miracle and her family!
