Jaxon Horvaths Medical Expenses

Here’s the story:
My brothers wife went into labor at 37 weeks on January 22 at about 5am. After almost 23 hours of labor, Jaxon finally arrived at 2:15 am on January 23rd. Everything was well and good with little Jax until they noticed he was having trouble breathing with the post birth tests. It turns out he had pulmonary hypertension and was transported to Lehigh valley Allentown by ambulance for further treatment, where he remained for 17 hours. The treatment he was receiving was not working like we had hoped and he was life flighted by helicopter to DuPont children’s hospital in Delaware to be put on ECMO, a procedure to put more oxygen into his blood. The morning of January 25th he’ll be receiving a heart surgery to put in two veins to connect to his lungs. Since Jaxon is only 2 days old they’re very uncertain of how long the recovery will be and if his body will accept the surgery properly, causing my brother and his wife to take all the time needed off from work to remain in Delaware with their son. This was supposed to be one of the best times of my brother and wife’s life but it turned out to be a never ending nightmare. I’m creating this page for the soul purpose to alleviate some of the medical cost, surgical costs, transportation costs, the time off of work, etc. Anything anyone would be willing to give won’t go unnoticed and is greatly appreciate.
Thank you in advance!
