Colins Support Fund

Colin has been hospitalized since February 12th and is expected to be there another ten days to two weeks with an additional six weeks of recovery time at home. He had bowel resection surgery this past Thursday. While this alone is a complicated surgery he aspirated during anthesthia and has been on a ventilator with sedation ever since. 

This has placed a huge, unexpected financial burden on the family. Both of Colins parents are employed full time but have missed tremendous amounts work as they care for Colin at Childrens. The family is in need of help right now and anything you may be able to give will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to donate financially, please consider a meal or just saying a prayer for Colin's recovery and the family's strength. 

You can visit Colin's CaringBridge site at under Colin Essig or tbdessig for updates and history.  This little warrior has been through more than any child should have to endure.
