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

It was a great week for the children. We finally got to hold Charles and Victoria. Except for Victoria, everyone is breathing on their own. But Victoria is only on 2 liters of a nasal respirator. But they are all growing like weeds and the doctors couldn't be more pleased. Thank you all for the love, prayers and support. God bless

Praying for your family! I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in August while 31 weeks pregnant and was then induced. Doing chemo now and radiation soon. 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 am following these precious babies and their sweet parents on Facebook. While the little ones are safe in NICU, their momma is fighting cancer. And their daddy is keeping American safe as a Sgt. in the Army.
