Little Shea Fell was delivered by emergency caesarean to excited parents Christy and Bryndel on December 9th, 2013 almost two weeks over due.


Although he was otherwise healthy at 9 lbs 2 oz, Shea was born with large lesions which extended down his his right leg and the back of both hands. After briefly getting to meet and bond with his Momma, he was sent by air ambulance to BC Children's Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. His Dad accompanied him to Vancouver where he was told his son had a rare genetic condition called junction epidermolysis bullosa which truly makes little Shea one in a million. ( www.debra.org)
EB affects the skin and causes it to be extremely fragile where even the slightest friction may result in large blisters leaving his skin open to infection.




In order to make Shea's life as comfortable and pain free as possible his parents will be faced with making everything 'Shea friendly'. Clothing will need to be seamless, blankets ultra soft, special linings are required for bathtubs, car seats and his crib. They will need to spend much of their time making sure Shea doesn't develop more sores. Shea will also require hours of specialized care each day to bandage and protect his skin.





We need to help this wonderful little family as they learn to help their beautiful new addition. They will need to purchase new gear, medical supplies and special dressings. As any new parent knows, baby's are expensive... especially when they have special requirements. Please help Bryn, Christy, and Shea get the supplies they need for all his continuous care.

Bryn and Christy have also opened a savings account with RBC if you would prefer donate to Shea's care directly, you may contact them by email at babysheafell@hotmail.com

Thank you so much for your support - Bryn and Christy have been absolutely floored by your generosity!

While Shea's hands are doing well, his right leg still requires significant improvement before Shea will be discharged to Prince George. Therefor, Bryn and Christy will need to stay in Vancouver for the next few months. Your support is more important than ever.

We invite you to continue to share Shea's story and to visit his website - www.loveforshea.com where Bryn and Christy are posting regular updates and photos.

Thank you from our family to yours.
With love from Shea

I have just been informed that Shea has been diagnosis has been refined to Herlitz -Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa. This news has devastated Christy and Bryn and completely changes the level of care that Shea requires. We will be lucky to have Shea in our lives for the next 3 years. In order to manage his daily care and insure he is as loved and comfortable as possible Bryn or Christy will now need to stay home with Shea full time. As such, I have raised the target goal to reflect their increased need.
