Hendrix's Medical Fund

$38,961 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 295 people in 28 months
On July 12, 2016, after much anticipation, Hendrix Kunze let out his first cry for the world to hear. There could be no sweeter sound for the proud parents. During pregnancy, Rose & Jeff learned that their firstborn's life would most likely be full of challenges. Surviving birth was a HUGE victory! Hendrix was immediately taken to the NICU for monitoring, evaluation and genetic testing.

Over the course of the next few days, results showed that Hendrix has 2 holes in his heart, 3 kidneys, and 6 toes on each foot. Although the genetic tests continue to come back negative, other health issues continue to arise daily. On July 28th, Hendrix will undergo his first of what may be many surgeries.

I am the lucky girl who gets to call these high school sweethearts my best friends. Rose & Jeff are the most giving, patient and kind-hearted people that you will ever meet. They have organized, rallied and supported many charitable causes and friends in need. Now it is our turn to help them.

Any contribution that you are able to give is greatly appreciated. Your financial contribution will help pay for Baby Hendrix's medical needs.

The family respectfully ask that if you want to contact them or continue to follow Hendrix's progress, please access his Caring Bridge website. @  https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/hendrixkunze

The Kunze Family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generousity.

It is with a heavy heart that I make this final post for my favorite little warrior, Hendrix Kunze. On August 1st, Hendrix was called to heaven. Although I am incredibly sad, I am grateful that he is now free from pain. I could not think of a more precious angel.

Hendrix's proud parents continue to be strong, patient and the epitome of grace. They are taking some time together to regroup. But they wanted me to reach out to thank all of you for your unbelievable amount of love and support throughout this past year!

Rose & Jeff will be holding an informal sunset gathering in honor of their son. Please see below for more details and be sure to check out his caringbridge page.

Just wanted to post a quick update about our favorite Mystery Man, Hendrix. In December he underwent his skull surgery which will allow his brain to grow. Overall, the procedure was a success. In true Hendrix style there were some hiccups along the way, but he continues to persevere.

Jeff and Rose thank you from the bottom of their hearts for your continued love and support. To learn more about Hendrix's progress, please follow along using his Caring Bridge site:
