Corrine and Jude's Medical Fund


11145599_1462539702.7391_funddescriptionCorrine Cassels had her second son Jude on April 13th. During her pregnancy she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. They will need to remove her thyroid and then decide if any other action will need to be taken. Though she is currently putting her surgery on hold.
A week after Jude was born they were told he has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID). This is a very rare condition that means Jude has no immune system and his body can not fight off even mild infections. He will need to get a bone marrow transplant in order to have a working immune system. He will also need medical care his whole life. Corrine and her husband Chris Lies will have to take special measures Jude's whole life to keep him safe.
Due to Corrine's own health and now the health of her baby, she will not be able to work. It will be a full time job for Corrine to keep Jude healthy and keep him from getting sick for the first year after his transplant. A transplant is very expensive and Corrine's surgery and treatment for her cancer will also be expensive. Her family will now be on a single income. If you can, please help her and her family. Thank you.
