Travel & Medical Expenses

Brad and Amy welcomed twin boys into their family on April 17, Carter and Ryker. They also have a daughter McKenzy who is 5. Ryker was born with spina bifida, and has already had a few surgeries to place a shunt in his brain. Last week he started having breathing issues and was flown to Carle only to be treated and released with no real answers. Once he was home and showed no improvement they took him to St. Louis Children's hospital.  After many tests it was determined he has a Chiari Malformation.  More tests are being done to determine the type and if more surgery is needed. I have set up this Go Fund me Account to help with travel and medical expenses. They are unsure how long Ryker will be in the hospital and they will be doing alot of traveling back and forth between their home and St. Louis. Once he is home there will be trips to see his specialists in St. Louis and medical expenses. Please keep the Miller family in your prayers. If you choose to donate please know that we are forever thankful!!!
