Charles Edward Gaytan Jr.  OAK GROVE, KY


My name is Charles Gaytan. My beautiful wife, Kayla, son Ethan, and daughter Harper and I have a one of a kind story.

My wife and I have been through a lot, just this year. In January 2016, we got  married, we were so excited to begin our lives together. A week later, we found out that Kayla was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma.She battled a gruesome 5 months of chemotherapy, getting treatments every other week. In May, we were told awesome news, Kayla was in remission,However, We were told that having another child would be unlikely.

Unlikely but not impossible. In June, just one month after completing chemotherapy, By the grace of God, she became pregnant; with 4 babies. Yes, naturally conceived quadruplets!  We couldn't be happier. The pregnancy was going off without a hitch, everything was going smoothly,

 At 28  weeks pregnant, Kayla had a biopsy and the results confirmed a relapse of her Hodgkins Lymphoma. It's been characterized as refractory disease so a stem cell transplant followed by 16 months of chemotherapy is needed. With a heavy heart, we along with our medical team decided to deliver the babies by C Section at 30 weeks. As Kayla needs to begin treatment right away. Our quadruplets were born December 30, 2016. They are currently in the NICU and trying their best to breathe. We feel very blessed.

We've been extremely fortunate in our lives, however we appreciate anyhelp as we have a long journey ahead. Thank you for reading this. God Bless and KCCO

My baby boy is beautiful and healthy and so will yours. I understand somewhat what you are going through. It's tough, but you will make it! Lots of people are praying for you! God bless!

I have never sent Bill O'Reilly an email before, but I had to send him one to tell him how his story on this family caused it to explode with donations from his viewers, going from approx $18,000 to $373,000+ in less than 1/2 hours. Bill has the most loving and giving fanbase I have ever seen. God bless you all; God bless Bill and God bless the Gaytons.

We are so touched by the love you both have for each other. God is good and you will endure this battle. So incredibly happy for you that your donation amount is skyrocketing. Much love to you both and your precious little ones!!
