The condition is so serious that Baby Emmitt had to be medivaced immediately after birth to Kapiolani Children’s Hospital in Honolulu from Kona Hospital where he is now on a ventilator and is being fed through a feeding tube. Baby Emmitt’s condition can be corrected through surgery by placing rods in his lower jaw to stretch out the bone, however there is no surgeon in the State of Hawaii that is able to perform this surgery.
Baby Emmitt and the Coddington family must travel to a NICU on the mainland so that Baby Emmitt can be cured. Emmitt’s parents, Chris and Sebrina Coddington, both born and raised in Hawaii, have medical insurance, but this is an extraordinarily expensive procedure. The family will have to travel to take off work and travel to the mainland and live there several weeks until Emmitt’s jaw has corrected enough so that he can eat and breath on his own. Many of you might know Sebrina from her beautiful singing voice, as she has been an entertainer at several restaurants in West Hawaii for the past few years. Please Kokua, and donate to this fund to help this young Hawaiian born and raised family.
