Baby Jonathan's fight

No one likes to ask for others help so this is a very difficult thing for our family to do..

My daughter Valerie Kimball and her husband Ben Kimball’s son Jonathan is 6 weeks old.

He is currently at Golisano’s Children’s Hospital (His 3rd admission since birth)

Golisano Specialists have identified the cause of his ongoing respiratory issues, he has a mass in his Eustachian tube in his ear that extends into his nasal cavity.

He has been under anesthesia numerous times for diagnostic testing and biopsy. We are waiting on the results of the biopsy and will update you all once we know.

Regardless of what it is, the Doctors feel that it is best he go to Boston’s Children Hospital for surgery to remove and any treatment required.

As you can imagine, expenses for hospital stays, , gas, parking and food are adding up. Now they will also be facing travel expenses to Boston for surgery, treatment and follow up. Valerie is staying at the hospital and never leaves his bedside. Ben and family are making sure that Jonathans siblings are cared for and getting prepared for school etc. And of course we are worried about the potential of insurance maxing out, out of pocket expenses are capped at $11,000 which is a lot of money.

How you can help:

●     Donate if you can, even small amounts add up! And share this Go Fund Me

●     If you cannot donate, please share this Go Fund Me with others

●     Help Ben with meals, school prep, homework assistance,  etc.

Thank you!
