Blessings for Baylee (and Family)

This page has been created to help the HUNT FAMILY who struggles with the medical needs of their beautiful little girl BAYLEE.
At first glance, Baylee looks like any kindergartener - she is so full of life and has a great big personality to match!
But she struggles daily with basic functions like swallowing and breathing. 
She was born with severe pulmonary issues, a compromised immune system, dysphasia, and her vocal cords require an injection every six months to function properly.  
She has endured 59 procedures under anesthesia.
Because she has been diagnosed with a terminal illness, Baylee receives a monthly Social Security check of $700 which her family uses to pay for her medication.
She currently takes 14 separate medications every day.
Because of a paperwork mix-up, however, they won't be receiving her December check.
Simultaneously, this error also froze her Medicaid coverage so she has no insurance.
The Hunt Family is in need of $2,300 by December 20, 2015, to cover the cost of her medications.
I have requested an additional $200 so the family can purchase toys for Baylee and her 3 big brothers.
I have personally known the Hunt Family for 6 years. These are genuinely good Christian people!
Baylee's parents are kind, humble, hardworking individuals who are very involved in their community, and both are ministers in their church.
They are uncomfortable asking for assistance (but we convinced them to do this)!
When Baylee's Mom (Elsie) and I first became friends, she shared Baylee's medical history with me - which moved me to tears (she said most people react that way, which was why she didn't tell many people).
I was aware Baylee went to the doctor a lot, but had no idea this amazing little girl might not live to adulthood.
One of the stories Elsie shared with me was of a morning when she awoke to a warm, wet bed and Baylee lying next to her. When Elsie attempted to wake her, Baylee had stopped breathing which was why she'd wet the bed..  As a mother, myself, I can't imagine dealing with this!!
Elsie is unable to work as she must be on-call should Baylee have  respiratory issues at school (which happens with frequency).  
And, due to Baylee's  compromised immune system, should she show any symptoms of illness, she needs to be put on antibiotics immediately.
Know that Baylee is not only adorable on the outside, but beautiful on the inside as well.
She is a comfort to other patients while she's having her own procedures done, last Christmas she even gave her favorite doll to a scared little girl about to go into surgery.
Please consider addressing this need.
If you find it in your heart to do so, please help our sweet, beautiful little girl.  Thank you.
