Baby AJ’s Journey

Arthur James Frederick Drews, Baby AJ, was born at 5:08 pm EST at 7lbs 15oz on January 9, 2019. Baby AJ has HLHS(Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome) where the left side of his heart did not develop or grow properly. Without immediate medical intervention, the syndrome is fatal. The team of doctors are wonderful. As his father I would love to say I can afford all expenses that we will incur while being with him, but the events of this past year have taken that ability away from us. I started a new job this past September and unfortunately it only will provide enough for us to pay some of our bills while mommy is with AJ. We are not usually the type of people to ask for this type of help, however, we are desperate so that we can hold our little boy and watch him grow up. We are praying everyday for a miracle, but we are also going to do everything that we can to help him. We are setting this up as a way to hopefully reduce the financial burden of any costs of treatment and travel to receive treatments/ procedures.
