Baby Ivy's medical costs

My brother and sister in-law welcomed their new baby girl into the world on January 23rd, 7 weeks early. Lyndsay underwent an emergency c-section and baby Ivy was life flighted to Primary Children's hopital to recieve the immediate care she needed in order to survive.  She had surgery the following day, so the Dr's could find out what was causing the blockage in her intestines. Soon afterwords, we recieved life-changing news. She was diagnosed with a terminal disease, Cystic Fibrosis.  Over the past few days, we have learned that her life will be dramatically different than we all expected, and she will have to recieve special care everyday in order to grow and stay healthy, on her journey here on Earth. 

We don't know how long she will remain in the NICU at Primary Children's and we are unsure of what challenges lie ahead, but Nic and Lyndsay are so grateful for the incredible Dr's and nurses there and the small impovements she continues to make every day. She is such a little fighter!

I am setting up this GoFundMe account on their behalf, with hopes of raising money to assist Nic and Lyn with the unimaginable medical expenses that are in their future, as well as the medical costs they have endured so far. We want to help take this financial burden from them, so they can give all their love and focus to their new baby girl. I hope you can donate what you can, while knowing they will forever be grateful to you.

We have faith that despite the incredible hardships she will face each day, that she will still live a long, happy life, and that our Heavenly Father has special plans for her. He will bless her and her parents and be by their side every step of the way. Thank you so much for your support as they begin this new way of life with their precious new daughter.
