Please Help 6 Month Old Baby Marlee

Marlee is an incredible and strong baby girl! This tiny little baby has been fighting for her life since she was born a preemie 6 months ago! For only being 6 months old she has lived the majority of her life in a hospital. She was brought into this world 5 weeks early without her lungs being completely developed. Since then, Marlee has been hospitalized several times with many complications. At only 6 months old she has fought asthma, flu, pneumonia, RSV, a 2 week coma, several machines to keep her alive and we almost lost baby Marlee to all of her health issues. Baby Marlee is a fighter and she has not given up! She currently is out of the coma and slowly but surely making progress everyday! Special thanks to everyone that has been praying for this baby all day every day!❤️❤️ As you can see, baby Marlee has been through a very rough life so far. She has a long way to go on the road to recovery and that is why I’m asking for your help. As a mother, I couldn’t imagine going through this nightmare and I could only imagine what it’s like for my cousin to be going through this. Shayna (her mother) has spent almost every single day and night by her bedside hoping and praying that the Lord will heal her tiny soul. On top of the long stressful days and the restless nights, Shayna is struggling to get out of an abusive and extremely toxic relationship. She also is raising a 1 1/2 year old toddler so her plate is extremely full. However, she is very strong and she is keeping it together and I’m very proud of her and so is her mother, Kim Bailey! Unfortunately, Shayna has been unable to escape this toxic relationship because she is unable to work and provide for her and her kids as she has a very sick baby and a toddler. Marlee is expected to be in the hospital for awhile and even when she gets out of the hospital she will not be able to go to daycares. She will need her mommy and a place to go to that’s safe and away from places that will make her sick again. I set this account up to solely help my cousin and baby Marlee! I’m proud to say that Shayna is a recovering addict and has been clean for 2 years. Shayna has been through so much in her life and I want her to know how great she is doing at being a mother. I want her to stay strong for her babies but I know she needs help! At this point Shayna is struggling with medical bills, everyday living expenses and a very toxic relationship and she needs our help. My hopes are to get baby Marlee healthy enough to get out of the hospital and put my cousin and her baby girls in a safe place away from the abuse. I’m asking for all prayers and any donations to get my cousin her own place to call home! Shayna is also out of a car if she leaves this relationship so I would like her to be close to me (Columbus) so that I can help her with doctors appointments and other errands that will need to be made. Let’s all come together to help Shayna get on her feet again! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time to read this and any donations! May God bless you and baby Marlee!❤️ Brittney & Kim
