A little warrior Zion was born to Tom and Stacey Rogers, 6 weeks early with 2 heart conditions that have kept his short little life quite exciting! Their medical expenses for him are more than they can meet at this time. Between NICU bills, echos, ekg's, and oxygen, the expenses are piling up. Several of these are not an option, they are a necessity. They have a very high deductible to meet for him and a year full of medical expenses for Zion. Many family and friends have asked what they can do to help. We are in the process of planning a salsa fundraiser and possibly a yard sale. Any donation on here is appreciated, from the bottom of our hearts. No amount is too small. Stacey is willing to work for your donations. Please leave an email in the comment section if you would like your house cleaned or any other chores that she could do on a Saturday afternoon. All money raised will go towards medical costs for Zion.

We have been completely overwhelmed by the love and support shown to Zion and his family. Thank you to those who have donated and shared his story. We have posted some new pictures and ask that you continue to share if you feel like doing so. It's inspiring to see so many people contributing to the cause who don't even know him. Thank you so much for being part of all that is good and bringing this family some much needed relief and encouragement. They love you back.

On June 22, 2018, Zion was moved up to a status 1B for a transplant. The changed a couple of his medications around as well. The septum is measuring thicker and the left ventricle is smaller. The overall size of his heart has also increased. Due to increasing medical expenses, we have needed to raise our goal. We love you and are blessed by your donations.

Zion was listed on February 9, 2018 for a heart transplant as status 2. Status 2 is for those who are stable on oral medications and can wait at home. He has many hard days as his weak heart fails to pump enough blood which results in low oxygen levels. He now wears oxygen full time and receives daily medications through an iv which goes directly into his heart to help protect his other organs and make him feel as good as possible. His dad works 2 jobs to try and compensate for the overwhelming medical expenses that are piling up (medication co-pays, doctor visit copays, echo, ekg, and MRI copays, weekly blood work, iv supplies not covered by insurance, oxygen supplies) along with days tom needs to miss work when we are in-patient. Our hearts are broken as we watch our little boy fight this battle. We praise our Father in Heaven for every day that he keeps Zions heart beating. We have hope that a heart will be provided to our precious Zion and we trust in the Lords timing. "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 2 timothy 1:7

Zion is now 9 months old. He continues to love life, despite his physical setbacks. We are hoping to purchase a homefill oxygen system which is very expensive. While the initial cost is high, it is the cheaper option in the long run. Any donation is a blessing to us, no matter how small. For local family and friends, Stacey will also be doing a salsa fundraiser and is offering housecleaning for donations.
