Baby Kaimani's Medical Recovery Fund

Our newborn son Kaimani has been diagnosed with SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency) which basically means he has no functional immune system. He is currently being protected by antibodies inherited from mom at birth but those are wearing off a little each day. If not treated the condition is fatal, usually within the first year. With treatment he is expected to make a full recovery.

Kai wll need chemotherapy followed by a bone marrow transplant. For the best results they would prefer to start the process by or before 3 months of age. He is facing months of aggressive treatments at Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland. Insurance will pay for his procedure but we will be leaving our home for a minimum of 3 months to support him on his journey back to health and will not be able to work during this time.

Please help our family by sharing this link while keeping us in your thoughts and sending positive energy and love our way for Kai to thrive off of!

Second if you can afford to help by easing some of the financial burden we are going to endure through this challenging time it would be very helpful.

Any amount will be greatly appreciated!

We are in the process of locating a suitable bone marrow doner that is a proper match with Kai. If you would like to volunteer to be a doner you can register at to be added to their donor registry.

Thank you all for everything you have done so far and for all of the positive energy and love you are sending! We love you all more than you know!
