Blessings for Blake

Blake is a 2.5 yr old smiley, thoughtful, snuggly toddler with a lot on his plate. While he was born full term, he struggles with 26 different diagnosis that make it hard for him to grow. He has been labeled with Failure to Thrive and although he makes progess, it's slow. His other diagnosis include hypoglycemia, hypertension, dysautonomia, left ventricular Hypertrophy, Acid Reflux, Gastroperisis, Tracheomalasia, Inguinal Hernia, Tibial Torsion, Congenital Ptosis, GERD, Gross Motor Delay, Allergic Colitis, Severe Milk Allergy, peanut allergy, Feeding Delay and eczema. He is followed by 13 specialists and is also currently enrolled in Full Time feeding therapy at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. He has a feeding tube and we use that to increase his calories at night while he is sleeping.

Due to his difficulties growing and all the appointments and hospital stays that have been necessary, I have had to quite my job to become a full time care giver. Our income is meager but we are blessed and do the best we can with GOD's money and HIS gifts. Our hope is to take the funds gifted through this website and pay off some medical bills that are still looming over our heads from before our Medicaid coverage started as well as to pay off our credit card, which was used to cover a hospital stay in early 2013, also before Medicaid coverage.

Thank you so much for all you have done for us and even just for praying. We feel all the prayers and the love and are so blessed to have you in our lives! Feel free to pass this along to anyone you know that might want to donate. Know that your kindness will be passed on as we continue on our journey!

Be Blessed!
