Help sweet baby Brendan

$19,595 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 197 people in 28 months
Brendan was born in late July 2016. His parentes were shocked when they found out he had Esophageal Atresia/ Tracheoesophageal fistula, this is a congenital deformity in which there is no connection in his esophagus as well as issues with swallowing. He was also born with a coarctation or narrowing of his Aorta. He has overcome 4 very difficult surgeries in his short life.Recently while he was undergoing a dilatation of his esophagus a perforation or hole ensued. Unbeknownst due to a normal chest x ray right after surgery. He was rushed to the ER 4 hours later where he was diagnosed with a pneumothorax. He needed chest tubes and Intubation to keep him alive. After a week at our local hospital without much improvement we were transferred to Boston's children's hospital for repair. His health is finally improving. So far Brendan has spent more time in the hospital than in his home with his parents and his two older sisters Sofia (6) and Cecilia (3).As you can imagine hospital bills have been mounting and due to his continued care his mother has had to leave her job for some time without a certain date of return. This time it has been difficult both emotionally and financially. Please help fund Brendan. Your help is truly appreciated.

Sincerely

Johanna Godoy-Jones

Brendan came up from his repeat fundoplication. He is doing great! He has amazed everyone with how well he did down there and that they were able to extubate right after surgery. We thank you for your continued prayers and support.

This picture below is the first time I have seen his face without any tubes or tape on his face!

Thank you to everyone who graciously contributed. All your blessings have raised such a sizable amount to assist in Brendan's expenses. We still continue to see donations in excess of our goal and we're greatly appreciative of your kindness and generosity. Bless you all!

Just a quick update, he's doing very well and is scheduled to go to the OR for a repair tomorrow and we're hoping and praying for a successful procedure. In looking back to where he was and where he's at today, he's stronger then anyone I know. I thank God daily for giving him the strength to get through this not to mention, to keep my wife and I strong. Fighting to hold it together after seeing your baby go through this is nearly impossible and I hope none of you have to go through this.

They're saying that if all goes well with his procedures tomorrow and the other next month, little superboy will be able to come home in late January. There's a whole lotta love waiting for him.

Thank you all once again for your concerns, support, thoughts, and prayers.

Stay tuned!
