Baby Cruz Sanchez Medical Expenses

Tami and Daniel Sanchez, residents of Albuquerque, NM and parents to 3 amazing little girls were thrilled to find out they were expecting again. Unfortunately, that excitement quickly turned to fear and anxiety when at 20 weeks, their fourth child and son was diagnosed with major medical issues. Imagine the heartbreak when Tami and Daniel were told that their unborn baby, only 20 weeks, has a congenital heart defect called tetralogy of Fallot with AVSD, complete esophageal atresia and Down Syndrome. That devastating news began the long road of prayer, uncertainty and seeking of answers for their son, Cruz.

Tami and Daniel were first referred to UNMH and then eventually sent to the Denver Children’s hospital where at 36 weeks, Tami delivered Cruz via csection on Wednesday, September 27, 2017. Weighing in at 4.2lbs baby Cruz was immediately scheduled for his first of many surgeries. On the second day of his life, Cruz underwent a 2-hour surgery to insert a gtube which will give time for his stomach to grow before they attach his esophagus.

Tami and Daniel temporarily relocated to Denver, so they can all be together as a family during the fight of their lives. Right now, they have no idea just how long they will be in Denver. As you can imagine, the cost of rent in Denver, the medical expenses as well as their continued cost of living in Albuquerque is certainly adding up. It is our wish to help remove the monetary burden so Tami and Daniel can focus on what is most important right now, Cruz’s fight.

Please come along side this beautiful family in prayer, support and the sharing of their story. Tami and Daniel know that with God all things are possible and are confident that He is in control of this very uncertain time.

Thank you for Praying, Reading, Sharing and Supporting Baby Cruz and the Sanchez Family.
