Lucy Alice Montenary born September 22nd 2016 weighting 4 pounds and 15oz is considered a miracle. Lucy was born with Trisomy 18 a rare genetic disorder which created a VSD or (hole) in her heart. Despite the hole she is doing remarkably better than other trisomy babies at this stage. Trisomy 18 occurs 1 in every 2500 pregnancies and only 1 in every 5000 are live births. 50% of trisomy 18 babies don’t even make it pass their first week. Lucy has defeated all of these statics and is continuing to get stronger. Help us fight for our Lucy and give her the chances she deserves. The money will help to pay for personal out of pocket expenses.
