Ali, a bright and entergetic 2 year old, entered this world June 2015 with a smaller right hand. As she grew, doctors worked on a plan to surgically help Ali with her grip, but she started to noticeably lean to one side. Ali endured her first surgery last May as doctors performed a Filim Lysis to release the pressure on her spinal cord and Chiari Decompression .
Ali's post scan showed success in releasing the pressure on her spinal cord. Unfortunately the scan also showed some bad news. She also suffers from internal spina bifida and rare form of scoliosis, hemimetametric shift, which the doctors had hope to wait to correct when she was older. To the dismay of her family, Ali will need to undergo a rare and complicated surgery soon after Cooper.
September 3, 2017 gallant baby Cooper graced the world and his family. Bethany and Clinton previously moved into the Ronald McDonald House knowing Cooper would need surgery soon after his birth to correct a Interrupted Aortic Arch and the hole in his heart.
Rarely getting to hold their son due to all the lines and monitoring equipment, they waited for the results of Coopers extensive tests. Cooper's status is stable but the tests revealed he has an Interrupted Aortic Arch with a double outlet right ventricle as well as a ventricular septal defect. Lightning has struck the Phelps family twice!
Brave Cooper will recicve his first complex open heart surgery at 11 days old, with the second surgery to follow. After Cooper recovers from his first surgery it will be Ali's turn yet again go under.
We humbly request for any financial assistance to help monetarily support the Phelps family so they may concentrate on their two beautiful children.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy day learn about Ali and Cooper. Words can't express the gratitude we have for any contribution.
